SITRANS FCT030

Description

Based on patented digital signal processing technology, the SITRANS FCT030 transmitter delivers true multi-parameter measurements with enhanced efficiency, security and simplicity. It features a modular design for convenient installation and replacement, and can be remote or compact mounted with all SITRANS FCS400 sensor sizes.

FCT030 is approved for custody transfer and certified for safety critical applications up to SIL level 3. It is a universal transmitter suitable for all industries certified for hazardous areas with ATEX, IEC Ex and FM approvals.

The transmitter is based on the latest developments within digital signal processing technology – engineered for high measuring performance:

  • Fast response to step changes in flow

  • Fast dosing applications

  • Entrained gas

  • High immunity against process noise

  • High turndown

  • Easy to install commission and maintain

 

FCT030 is available as standard with 4-20 mA analog output with HART 7.2. Additional input / output functions can be freely configured for analog, pulse, frequency, relay or status.

The transmitter comes with user configurable graphical display and new SensorFlash® technology, a micro SD card for configuration backup, firmware update and  data storage.

In order to make a complete flowmeter system, the SITRANS FCT030  transmitter must be combined with the  sensor SITRANS FCS400.

Features

  • Digital signal transfer (Sensor and transmitter)

  • SensorFlash®   removable micro  SD card

  • SIL3 safety integration certified at design level

  • Modular construction

  • Graphical display, same across PI

  • Certified for custody transfer

  • 100 Hz update rate to all outputs

 

Typical applications: Chemical process industry, Oil & gas industry, Automotive industry and Power generation & utility industry.
