Emerson Process Management has expanded the range of compact Micro
Motion® 2400S transmitters in the ELITE Coriolis family with the
introduction of a 316L stainless steel housing. It is an alternate
choice to the standard polyurethane-painted aluminium housing. The
integral mounted transmitters, in either style of housing, can also now
also be ordered with DeviceNet or PROFIBUS DP communication protocols.
Rated to IP66 and IP67, the corrosion resistant stainless steel housing is ideal for applications where instruments are subjected to regular caustic wash-downs, which are typically found in the food, beverage and life science industries. The 316L construction is also ideally suited for marine and offshore environments.
The integral mount design of the transmitter simplifies installation
and reduces costs. The integral mounting transmitter removes the need
for remotely mounted transmitters in a non-wash down or safe area
enclosure, simplifying the installation and reducing costs.
DeviceNet and PROFIBUS DP are widely used in the food, beverage, and
life science industries with PLCs. Direct digital communications with
the PLCs means that two wires can now carry secondary and tertiary
process variables and instrument/process diagnostic information, as
well as the primary measurement. The result is that one instrument can
provide flow, density and temperature measurements, eliminating the
need for multiple sensors and the wiring/configuration costs associated
with them. In addition, digital communications unlock instrument
diagnostic information, such as drive gain, meter verification and
other alarms. This brings the full power of Micro Motion Coriolis flow
and density devices into the user’s host system.
