Siemens is extending its pressure transmitter portfolio to include devices with fixed measurement ranges. The Sitrans P200/P210/ P220 is ideally suited for applications involving defined measurement ranges in the process industries. These compact devices can be integrated into an existing process, and feature a plug-in connection for rapid commissioning. This series is aimed at machine builders, system suppliers to the process industries and also the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry.
The transmitters are suitable both for relative and absolute pressure measurement, and covers measurement ranges from 100 millibar up to 600 bar. With a negligible end value measurement error of just 0.25%, these transmitters respond with the utmost precision to process changes. This consistently high level of measurement accuracy is coupled with good overload resistance (up to 4 times the measurement range).
Versions are available with oil-filled measuring cell and stainless steel diaphragm, as well as with abrasion-proof ceramic diaphragm. Fully welded measuring cells without internal sealing are offered for high-pressure applications. The transmitters come with an array of process and electrical connections, making them adaptable to a wide range of different mounting situations. As these measurement transmitters are typically connected to automation systems, operating and monitoring elements have been dispensed with.

PCN Europe’s March issue features an Industry Special covering issues concerning the Environment, we look at the role heat management plays in the world’s largest CO2 test facility, in another one we discover a zero liquid discharge treatment process for waste water. Our Product Focus on Measurement Technology includes among others an application story showing how predication and performance monitoring on a oil & gas platform enables onshore personnel to monitor essential equipment. In our technical article we look at ways to eliminate mechanical issues in differential pressure systems. At this time of the year we are looking forward to the trade show season, especially at Hannover Messe, the leading industrial trade show. This edition also presents you with many other application stories and product news from all areas of the processing industries, enhanced with datasheets and videos.
