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 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.

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
