With the Sitrans P500 unit, Siemens presents a pressure transmitter to meet the high requirements. Thanks to its response speed (T63) of 88ms and its accuracy of 0.03%, the transmitter is able to respond quickly and precisely to changes in processes. An additional sensor for static pressure compensates for measuring inaccuracies and makes this measured value available as supplementary process information. The transmitter offers a level of accuracy that guarantees stable, precise measurements to a turndown of 10:1. This allows versatile use and reduces the need to procure and stock different transmitters. With a long-term stability over 0.05% in five years (0.08% over ten years), the device offers consistently high measuring accuracy, allowing longer calibration intervals. With dimensions of 87x187x139 millimeters (3.4” W x 7.4” H x 5.5” D), the new transmitter is compact in design and, at 3.3 kilograms (7.3 pounds), low in weight, and it is especially suitable for applications in the chemicals/petrochemicals, oil & gas, and energy sectors.
