SITRANS FC430 for OEM customers

Description

Building on a strong tradition of innovative thinking, Siemens has designed the next generation of coriolis flowmeters for excellence in performance, safety and user-friendliness: the SITRANS FC430.

The digitally based SITRANS FC430 flowmeter features market-leading compactness, very high accuracy of 0.1%, low pressure loss, extremely stable zero point and best-in class data update with 100 Hz high-speed signal transfer.

Unique support tools provide direct access to all operational and functional data, certificates and audit trails.

With the SITRANS FC430, process optimization has never been easier - or more innovative.

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

  • Fast response to  rapid changes in flow

  • Fast dosing applications

  • High immunity against process noise

  • High turndown ratio of flowrates

  • Suitable for liquid and gas service

  • Easy to install, commission and maintain

 

FC430 is available as standard with Profibus DP/PA, Modbus RS485 or 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 a  user configurable graphical display and new SensorFlash® technology, a micro SD card for configuration backup, firmware update and data storage.

The SITRANS FC430 flowmeter system consists of a   SITRANS FCS400 sensor and a SITRANS FCT030 transmitter.
