Siemens Coriolis Massflo Flowmeters Offer Increased Accuracy
SPRING HOUSE, Pa. (October 2004) – Siemens Energy & Automation introduces a complete line of highly accurate, coriolis mass flowmeters for multiple industries and critical process applications. Thanks to their accuracy, the SITRANS F C MASSFLO products deliver precise information for liquids or gas flows through a pipe, monitoring both mass flow, volumetric flow, density and process temperatures and can be used in a variety of applications including, dosing, blending and batching.

SITRANS F C MASSFLO meters are completely user-configurable, involving both software and hardware. The intelligent USM II, Universal Signal Module, platform allows you to retrofit the individual functions required, thanks to an "add-on" module with optional functions. Once installed, the module is automatically detected and programmed to factory settings via a SENSORPROM flow memory unit.

Due to our new, dedicated mass flow chip with the latest ASIC technology, the flowmeter has an improved step response which provides the fast response needed for high speed batching applications.

Measurement is virtually unaffected by variations in pressure, temperature, density, electrical conductivity and viscosity. Application flexibility is further enhanced, since the meter can be located at any point in the installation.

A uniform sensor interface enables true plug and play operation. Installation is done in less than 5 minutes and no special tools are required.

Adding to modularity, the USM II platform handles most present communication protocols, e.g., HART, Profibus, Devicenet, Modbus or Can-Open. The design of the meter allows for the upgrading of future protocols as they are developed.

The product line extends for a 1.5 mm (1/16”) sensor to a 150 mm (6”) sensor. This wide variety of sensors provides the flexibility to meet most any application requirement.
