Pressure transmitters for remote commissioning of functional safety


Siemens presented Sitrans P320/420, the first pressure transmitter on the market to feature remote safety handling reducing commissioning time in applications requiring functional safety.

Via Simatic Process Device Manager (PDM) the safety integrity level (SIL) devices will be commissioned: rather than manually attending to each individual device across the facility, operators can commission transmitters from the control room. This next generation of pressure transmitters was developed according to IEC 61508 standard for the use in SIL 2/3.

The HART7 Sitrans P transmitters are ready for plant digitalization, giving users indepth control and analysis through new data logging functions and event control. The devices’ reduced response time increases process efficiency by speeding up the control system’s response to changing process conditions.

Setup is convenient and quick thanks to four-button programming, Namur NE107 support and a quick start wizard. With measuring ranges from 20 mbar to 700 bar, depending on the device, these new additions to Siemens pressure portfolio provide reliable results even under extreme conditions. The devices are especially suited for applications where safety is critical: in industries such as chemical, oil and gas, and power generation. The Sitrans P320/420 can also be implemented in all other industries.
