Measuring Temperature in a Rotating Furnace


Measuring temperature in a rotating furnace using the YTMX580 Multi-Input Temperature Transmitter

Background and customer requirements

The customer uses a rotating furnace in their manufacturing of titanium oxide. They wish to install multiple temperature sensors directly on the rotating furnace in order to measure the internal temperature with high accuracy.


Install a YTMX580 on the side of the rotating furnace that can wirelessly transmit measured values from multiple temperature sensors.


  • The YTMX580 allows wireless transmission of up to 8 data sources
  • Direct temperature sensors provide the highest accuracy
  • Wireless transmission means no wiring from the rotating furnace
  • Battery powered—eliminates power cords and wires
