Siemens has optimized its digital Coriolis flowmeter platform
Siemens announces the release of process-optimizing advantages to their entire digital Coriolis flowmeter platform. Siemens low-flow FC MASS 2100 and FC300 sensors in line sizes 1/16 to 1/2 inch are offering features such as advanced programming wizards, automatic dual-phase flow filtering, flow batching, and programmable dosing recipes all in a class 1 Division 1 enclosure with the Siemens FCT030 and FCT010 top-line digital transmitters. A range of users can benefit from mass flow accuracy of 0.1%, density accuracy of 0.5 kg/m3, and 100Hz digital update rate.
Already available in sizes 1/2 inch to 3 inches, the Sitrans FCS400 sensor program has now grown to include sizes 4- and 6-inch sensors. The FCS400 is one of the most compact Coriolis sensors on the market, featuring a frame almost immune to process noise with an array of process connectors for many of the standard, 3A hygienic, and hazardous applications.
Several advancements to the transmitter line have also been implemented to provide greater flexibility in installation and simplicity in operation. The FCT030 offers a wall-mount enclosure that enables remote configurations complemented by the option for Modbus or PROFIBUS DP/PA digital communication. The fully graphical Human-Machine Interface (HMI), which already featured an intuitive menu structure and multiple setup wizards, has been redesigned with an even easier-to-navigate layout. The SensorFlash microSD card has also been enriched with an audit trail feature, which automatically stores up to 100 records of diagnostic parameters or changes made to device settings. This function allows operators to analyze the performance of each process and address any potential issues, resulting in optimized plant efficiency and higher-quality end products.
