  • 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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
