New, higher-precision pressure transmitters added to the Sitrans family

18.06.2015

 Achema 2015, Hall 11, Booth C3

  • Siemens increases type diversity of the Sitrans family
  • New Sitrans P410 and innovated Sitrans P DS III in the Advanced pressure transmitter segment of Siemens
  • The portfolio is rounded off by Sitrans P310 in the Basic segment and Sitrans P500 in the Premium segment

Siemens is extending the Sitrans P family of its pressure transmitter portfolio. By adding the newly developed Sitrans P310 and P410 to the Basic and Advanced segments and the proven Sitrans P500 in the Premium segment, Siemens is now able to offer the right device class to address every conceivable measurement requirement. The proven Sitrans P DS III has also been technically innovated. The new developments deliver even more accurate measurement results across the whole pressure transmitter range.


The Sitrans P family, comprising Sitrans P310, P410, P DS III and P500, offer users just the right pressure transmitter for every measurement need. Sensor technology taken from the Premium segment has now been used to enhance the precision of the Advanced products.

The Sitrans family provides a high-precision product portfolio to cover any conceivable measurement need with its comprehensive range of device classes, from the Basic model, the P310, through the Advanced Sitrans P410 to the proven Premium Sitrans P500.

The P310 pressure transmitter offers a measurement accuracy of 0.075 percent, making it ideal for applications in fields such as water supply and disposal.

With its extreme measurement accuracy of 0.04 percent, when used in combination with an orifice meter the Sitrans P410 is ideally suited for applications such as the flow measurements required when filling and emptying gas tanks. The same applies to pressure measurements for process gases or fluids in low and high pressure applications up to 700 bar. The Sitrans P500 rounds off the Sitrans P family in the Premium segment with standard measurement ranges from 50 mbar to 32 bar.

In terms of performance, precision, long-term stability and diagnostic scope, the differential pressure transmitter is capable of coping with the most stringent demands. With a response time of 88 ms and an ability to operate in temperatures of -49°C to +125°C (-56.2 °F to 257 °F), the Sitrans P500 is ideally suited for the ultra-precise measurement of differential pressure, filling level and flow rate.

Still available is the tried and tested Sitrans P DS III. This product from the Advanced segment has been innovated to feature premium sensor technology, bringing about an improvement in both basic accuracy and temperature range, as well as optimizing measurement deviation to 0.065 percent with a turndown of 1:1 to 5:1.

This allows plant efficiency to be further increased when performing processes such as level measurement, as the new technology enables better utilization of shut-off limits for tank filling levels. These improvements and the wider relative pressure range, which has been extended with a 250 mbar cell, make this the highest performing transmitter for flue gas measurements in power stations and incineration plants.

All of the transmitter series are simple to operate using just three push buttons, and offer a long-term stability of 0.125 percent over a period of five years, allowing calibration cycles to be extended and maintenance work reduced with all the associated cost savings. They are also certified to SIL 2/3 and dispose the commonly required Ex zone certifications.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
