Product overview system products and data managers
Nowadays the requirements on measurement technology go far beyond the mere recording of measurement values. Thus the measuring devices are to be supplied with power and to be protected against overvoltage, the measurement value is to be visualized or processed, limit values have to be monitored as well as the data has to be tamper-proof archived. These tasks are covered by the system products and data managers from Endress+Hauser.
Data managers & data loggers for process monitoring
Data managers are flexible and powerful systems for organizing process values. Thanks to its intuitive operation, the data managers adapts quickly and easily to every application. The measured process values are clearly presented on the display and logged safely, limits are monitored and analyzed. Via common communication protocols, the measured and calculated values can be easily communicated to higher-level systems and individual plant modules can be interconnected.
Process indicators & control units for all industries
Analog measured values are indicated, evaluated and calculated by process indicators. Large displays offer easily readability at all ambient conditions. The universal inputs enable the connection of current, voltage, RTDs and TCs. Loop powered indicators require no power supply and can be universally used in current measuring circuits. They can be easily installed in intrinsically safe applications. Fieldbus indicators support all bus devices and indicate the values communicated on the bus.
Process transmitters & limit switches in one device
Analog measured values are indicated, evaluated and calculated by process transmitters. With the integrated loop power supply two-wire sensors can be powered. The universal inputs enable the connection of current, voltage, RTDs and TCs. Limit values can be monitored and relays can be switched. Via analog outputs process signals can be forwarded. The integrated application package "differential pressure" (option) allows the quick and easy commissioning for differential pressure applications.
Energy managers & application managers for monitoring process values
Heating and cooling are energy-intensive processes. As the costs are constantly rising and, depending on the industry the energy costs amount up to 40% of the total industrial production costs, energy optimization is a very current topic. The basis for optimization is the recording of energy flows. This is where energy and application managers are used. They use flow, temperature and/or pressure to calculate the energy content of liquids and steam.
Power supplies & barriers for sensors & transmitters
Power supplies & barriers supplies e.g. a transmitter with power, if required also in the Ex-area, and then transmits the galvanically isolated signal. With the optionally available HART® monitoring the status of the transmitter is monitored. Thus even just briefly occurring errors can be easily located.
Gateways & modems, quick and simple access to field device and network data
Gateways and modems are system components that provide easy access to field device and network data. A modem provides a protocol conversion, e.g. HART/USB or FF/Bluetooth, and is used with a handheld configurator or computer. A gateway provides a parallel network access point for, e.g. device configuration software (FieldCare). In addition to the protocol conversion, gateways offer additional functions, e.g. network and device status monitoring, which can be viewed with a standard web browser.
Device configuration tablets for commissioning and maintenance of field devices
The Field Xperts are universal, high-performance device configuration tablet PCs for hazardous (Ex Zone 1 and 2) and non-hazardous areas. They provide easy access to Endress+Hauser and third-party field devices. Designed for use with all digitally communicating field devices, these tablets help to set up, troubleshoot and analyze devices. Connect them to our digital services Netilion Analytics and Netilion Library to start digitalizing your plant.
WirelessHART solutions, cost-efficient integration of moving, changing and remote measuring points
WirelessHART provides an extremely flexible method of integrating measuring points into monitoring systems. It can be used in systems subject to regular expansion, e.g. well heads, those constantly on the move, as well as on rotating or moving machinery. As the systems are self-organizing, they require a minimum of time to set up, integrate and commission. Endress+Hauser’s adapter concept also allows WirelessHART communication to be quickly added to existing 4 to 20 mA devices.
Surge arresters for over voltage protection
Plant availability is very important as even short failures in production may cause high losses in sales. Therefore respective protection of the devices e.g. surge protection as well as a high availability of plant parts needs to be ensured. Direct and indirect lightning as well as switching operations within a process can produce voltage overloads into supply lines and communication circuits, such as fieldbus systems.
