12/03/2018 | Cost-effective, compact level transmitter with intelligent processing for improved accuracy

  Siemens presents Sitrans Probe LU240, its newest ultrasonic level measurement Hart transmitter, a hardworking and rugged device that provides reliable level, volume, and flow measurements. Engineered for the challenges of the environmental industry, this transmitter is also suited for the chemical and food and beverage applications. Field-proven Process Intelligence echo processing separates true material level echoes from false, providing reliable readings while still allowing rapid response to actual changes in the material level. The device's reduced blanking distance decreases waste in applications while boosting asset utilization by providing continuously accurate readings even with high levels of material. more

11/23/2018 | Siemens extends its positioner portfolio with Sipart PS100

  With the Sipart PS100, Siemens is presenting a new positioner that is impressively easy to commission and highly robust. The Sipart PS100 can be initialized quickly at the touch of a button, automatically adjusting itself to the attached valve. If required, it is possible to optimize the positioner for a specific application with just one further touch of a button. Just as some cameras feature portrait, sport or night mode, the positioner can be set to different modes for precise and fast adjustment, open/close operation and other applications. These functionalities save time, cut the costs of commissioning, and increase the return on investment more

06/07/2018 | First pressure transmitters for remote commissioning of functional safety

  Siemens presents Sitrans P320/420, the first pressure transmitter on the market to feature remote safety handling reducing commissioning time in applications requiring functional safety. Via Simatic Process Device Manager (PDM) the safety integrity level (SIL) devices will be commissioned: rather than manually attending to each individual device across the facility, operators can commission transmitters from the control room.  more

05/07/2018 | Transmitter offers high reliability in temperature measurement

  With Sitrans TH320/420 and TR320/420, Siemens introduces a new generation of reliable HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer Protocol) temperature transmitters for a wide range of sensor types suitable for mounting in sensor head and rail mounting. They feature high availability of the measurement signal and ease of use.  more

09/28/2017 | Siemens enhances digital Coriolis flow portfolio for process optimization

  To extend the numerous process-optimizing advantages of the digital Coriolis flowmeter platform to low-flow applications such as batching, dosing and filling of both liquids and gases, the Sitrans FCT030 and FCT010 digital transmitters can now be paired with the Sitrans F C MASS 2100 and Sitrans FC300 Coriolis sensors for small line sizes from DI 1.5 to DN 15. With this major enhancement to the product line, a broad range of users from chemical to automotive applications can benefit from market-leading mass flow accuracy of 0.1%, density accuracy of 0.5 kg/m3 and 100 Hz signal processing. The high-speed update rate ensures the highest precision for applications such as the filling of beverage bottles. more
