Thanks to their Bluetooth interface and Heartbeat Technology, the new Cerabar and Deltabar are easier to operate and more efficient to maintain in safety-critical systems. The high level of safety combined with enhanced productivity follows the Endress+Hauser smart safety approach to increase plant availability.
Heartbeat Technology supports maintenance staff in verifying their measuring points. This can be done via a Bluetooth connection and at the touch of a button with the SmartBlue app. The verification can be carried out in less than 3 minutes without process interruption. It achieves a diagnostic coverage rate of over 95 percent. A verification protocol, which provides detailed information about all tests, is generated automatically. With this information, it is possible to plan system revisions and maintenance work for measuring devices in advance and reduce downtimes.
Additionally, the customer can use the device DTM to access all relevant data of the device which contain diagnostics and remedy information in his asset management system powered by FDT.
Heartbeat Technology does even more. It detects irregularities in the process, for example deviations in the loop resistance, which in turn indicate a defective cable. Also blocked impulse lines, e.g. due to crystallized medium, are detected by differential pressure transmitters. This data provides the basis for predictive maintenance.
The new Cerabar and Deltabar pressure measuring instruments will be launched in the fourth quarter of 2020.
