 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: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
