SITRANS FC430 for OEM customers

Coriolis mass flow meter

Building on a strong tradition of innovative thinking, Siemens has designed the next generation of coriolis flow meters for excellence in performance, safety and user-friendliness: the SITRANS FC430. The digitally based SITRANS FC430 flowmeter features market-leading compactness, very high accuracy of 0.1%, low pressure loss, extremely stable zero point and best-in class data update with 100 Hz high-speed signal transfer. Unique support tools provide direct access to all operational and functional data, certificates and audit trails.

With the SITRANS FC430, process optimization has never been easier - or more innovative.

The flowmeter is based on the latest developments within digital signal processing technology – engineered for high measuring performance:

  • Fast response to  rapid changes in flow

  • Fast dosing applications

  • High immunity against process noise

  • High turndown ratio of flowrates

  • Suitable for liquid and gas service

  • Easy to install, commission and maintain

FC430 is available as standard with Profibus DP/PA, Modbus RS485 or 4-20 mA analog output with HART 7.2. Additional input/output functions can be freely configured for analog, pulse, frequency, relay or status.

 

The transmitter comes with a  user configurable graphical display and new SensorFlash® technology, a micro SD card for configuration backup, firmware update and data storage.

 

The SITRANS FC430 flowmeter system consists of a SITRANS FCS400 sensor and a SITRANS FCT030 transmitter.

Benefits

  • Direct integration - into DCS automation systems via Profibus 4.0, Modbus, HART 7.2 or as standalone solution

  • Space-saving – remote sensor installation provides opportunity for optimal transmitter location

  • SensorFlash® – comprehensive removable memory functions (micro SD card)   
    - Calibration certificates   
    - Pressure and material test certificates (as ordered)   
    - Non-volatile memory backup of operational data   
    - Transfer of user configuration to other flowmeters
    - Data logging functionality

  • Compatible with NAMUR (NE132) – transmitter functions, output setups, error handling
