Pressure transmitter for level and flow measurement

15 September 2009

A range of smart differential pressure transmitters for process industry applications has been launched, which can be used for level measurement of closed, pressurised tanks, pump and filter control, or for closed pipe flow measurement in conjunction with an orifice plate, or nozzle.

The XMD range from Impress Sensors & Systems has a differential pressure range from 75mbar up to 2 bar and with a static over-pressure capable of 130 bar line pressures. The calibrated pressure range can also be turned down 10:1 times, which means that a 75mbar range can give a full scale output at 7.5mbar, whilst still maintaining the 130 bar line pressure. A 5:1 turn down ratio maintains the accuracy of the transmitter, which is ±0.1% FSO.

Outputs available are 4-20mA as standard with the option of having HART communication. If this option is selected, the XMD is ATEX-approved as standard. The device is intrinsically safe for Zone 0/1 and an Ex d version is available with a flameproof enclosure for Zone 1 applications.

The optional display is an LCD with a visible range of 32.5mm x 22.5mm. There’s also a textual display and a 52-segment bar graph that runs along the bottom of the display for easy interpretation of the output from the device. Even with this display option, the XMD is still rated to IP67.
