Pressure Transmitter Receives ABS Approval

The Siemens Process Instrumentation Group of Siemens Energy & Automation has received a Certificate of Type Approval from ABS for the SITRANS P, DSIII Series pressure transmitter. The SITRANS P DSIII pressure transmitter incorporates software that provides diagnostic capabilities and simulation functionality. Its diagnostic capabilities include the following benefits: high- or low-signal limit alarms; peak value registers that store the maximum and minimum values for pressure, sensor temperature, and electronics temperature; and two programmable "watchdog" timers that alert the operator when user-set maintenance and calibration times occur. Local configuration of all operational parameters can be made using magnetic pushbuttons on the instrument, eliminating the need for programming devices such as handheld communicator or laptop computers with configuration software. The transmitter's simulation capabilities provide for a complete signal simulation, from the input through to the output. A single technician can test the entire signal loop. The SITRANS DSIII transmitter is available for measuring pressure, absolute pressure, differential pressure, flow or level. It can be specified with a number of different exotic metal process diaphragms for use in aggressive process materials.

The two-wire device provides a standard 4-20 mA output signal that is proportional to the input pressure.
