SITRANS FCT030

Coriolis mass flow meter transmitter

Description

Based on patented digital signal processing technology, the SITRANS FCT030 transmitter delivers true multi-parameter measurements with enhanced efficiency, security and simplicity. It features a modular design for convenient installation and replacement, and can be remote or compact mounted with the entire SITRANS FC sensor range, offering a uniform transmitter interface across the entire Coriolis portfolio.

FCT030 is approved for custody transfer and certified for safety critical applications up to SIL level 3. It is a universal transmitter suitable for all industries certified for hazardous areas with ATEX, IEC Ex and FM approvals.

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

  • Fast response to step changes in flow

  • Fast dosing applications

  • Entrained gas

  • High immunity against process noise

  • High turndown

  • Easy to install commission and maintain

FCT030 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 user configurable graphical display and new SensorFlash® technology, a micro SD card for configuration backup, firmware update, data storage and data logging.

Features:

  • Digital signal transfer (Sensor and transmitter)

  • SensorFlash® removable micro SD card with data logging funtionality

  • SIL3 safety integration certified at design level

  • Modular construction

  • Graphical display, same across PI

  • Certified for custody transfer

  • 100 Hz update rate to all outputs

In order to make a complete flowmeter system, the SITRANS FCT030  transmitter must be combined with one of the sensors:

Typical applications: Chemical process industry, Oil & gas industry, Automotive industry and Power generation & utility industry.
