  • Improved digital signal processing in  low-flow sensors
  • Increased sensor size ranges adding 4 and 6 inch sensors
  • Increasing digital communications options with HART,  Modbus and Profibus PA & DP
  • Improved noise filtering and dual phase flow capabilities
  • Simplified set up and menu structure

     

Siemens is proud to announce 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 advanced 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. 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 100Hz digital update rate. The high-speed update rate ensures the highest precision for applications such as the filling of beverage bottles.

 

Already available in sizes 1/2 inch to 3 inch, the Sitrans FCS400 sensor program has now grown to include sizes 4 and 6 inch sensors. As a result, the FCS400 portfolio is suitable for a broader spectrum of applications ranging from OEM skids and control loops in the hygienic industries to bunkering and bulk chemical measurement. The FCS400 is one of the most compact Coriolis sensors on the market, featuring a robust frame almost immune to process noise with a wide 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, an ideal protocol for processes requiring fast data exchange. 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 innovative 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.
