  • Link to the product page
  Innovative 2-wire technology The Gammapilot FMG50 is the first 2-wire loop-powered compact transmitter on the market. A unique, patented high-voltage generation which requires only a fraction of the energy of its predecessor makes this possible. This revolutionizes radiometric measurement and offers valuable advantages over conventional devices. As additional installations and wiring for a supply voltage are no longer needed, considerable cost savings are achieved over the entire life cycle of the measuring point.   Digital potential With the latest generation of Gammapilot, operators communicate with the sensor using Bluetooth Technology ® and the SmartBlue app from Endress+Hauser. The app makes all product and diagnostic data available that could previously only be determined with greater effort. Another benefit of the Bluetooth functionality is the remote commissioning of the device. This is particularly relevant for measuring points that are difficult to access.   Functional device safety The Gammapilot FMG50 has been developed according to IEC 61508 for direct use in SIL2 and SIL3 applications and is currently the safest radiometric device on the market. It offers the SIL functionality for all measuring tasks (level, point level, density and interface). The newly implemented, user-friendly SIL Wizards reduce systematic and human errors and guide the user step-by-step through the proof test procedure.   Sensor technology for use without additional water cooling In applications with high temperatures, conventional instruments require additional water cooling to ensure a trouble-free measurement. The Gammapilot FMG50 solves this challenge with a high-quality sensor material. In addition, the innovative sensor design ensures the minimal self-heating of the device electronics and thereby contributes to the use without cooling. By eliminating the need for water cooling, planning, installation and operation costs can be saved.

Promag W 300/400/500 for unrestricted measurement

February 17, 2021

Electromagnetic flow meter
The world's first magmeter to measure flow independently of flow profile and mounting location
  In the water and wastewater industry, high measurement accuracy is indispensable for optimal process control. A variety of influences, such as a close-knit pipeline network or obstacles in the pipe, cause flow turbulences that affect accuracy. Promag W from Endress+Hauser features the “0 x DN full bore” option, a solution for this challenge that is the only one of its kind in the world: maximum measuring performance without tube restriction and thus without pressure loss.   Benefits
  • Best measuring performance independent of flow profiles
  • The first and only electromagnetic flowmeter with no inlet and outlet runs (0 x DN), no measuring tube restriction (full bore) and thus no pressure loss
  • Perfect solution for installation in space-restricted situations, e.g. on skids; especially after fittings and other turbulence-generating obstacles in the pipe
  Promag W 300/400/500 flowmeters with the “0 x DN full bore” option measure with high accuracy (±0.5%). They are particularly suitable for installation in tight spaces, e.g. on skids, as they do not need any inlet or outlet runs. Thus, Promag W can easily handle frequently occurring swirl downstream of obstacles such as pipe bends, insertion devices, build-up on the pipe wall, protruding seals or different inside diameters. Thanks to the design without restriction, there is no pressure loss.   Innovative measurement signal analysis The new and innovative measuring concept of Promag W (0 x DN) features multiple measuring electrodes that detect the flow. This generates a substantially higher density of measured data than for standard devices. Together with the refined signal analysis, reliable measurement results also for swirl are possible.   Flexible installation without pressure loss Previously, in case of flow disturbances, plant operators either had to comply with the recommended inlet/outlet runs or use a device with a restricted measuring tube that calms swirl. Yet sufficiently long straight pipe sections are often not present and restrictions cause pressure loss along with higher energy consumption and costs for pump operation. With the new option “0 x DN full bore”, reliable measured values, flexible installation and cost-efficient operation can now be combined easily.   Transmitter technology for seamless system integration Promag W can be combined with different transmitters: as a compact (Proline 300/400) or remote version (Proline 400/500) with up to 4 in- and outputs. They make no compromise in terms of performance and accuracy. The digital signal processing begins in the intelligent sensor and is the basis for a reliable, accurate measurement. Full access to all measurement data, including diagnostic data acquired by Heartbeat Technology, is always possible via digital data transmission or the in- and outputs.

Endres+Hauser - Which sensor to choose for remote level monitoring?

February 10, 2021

Level sensors

Finding the right sensor for a remote level monitoring application can be a tricky task. Believe me, I know. The market is stuffed with a wide variety of technologies and brands. I also know that even though level measurement is not rocket science, the wrong choice can give you tons of different headaches.

Each application has its particularities, and you need to have all the details laid out to find the right level sensor. Beyond that, it has to integrate with a control system or at least give you access to its history as well as its current data.

Today we’ll demystify the process of scaling out a good level transmitter for your remote level monitoring. Let's dive into some basic and advanced information on this topic.
 

Types of remote level monitoring

Remote applications can use the same sensors as standard control applications, but the installed structure might cause headaches. You can locate wireless level sensors all over the internet that use different working principles and communication tech, like these:

  • Ultrasonic level transmitter
  • Float level switch
  • Capacitance level switch
  • Radar level transmitter

As always, all options have pros and cons, so you’ll need to analyze your application to see which fits best. Still, one of these options can work in many application types to offer reliable measurement with many digital features.

So let’s discuss the benefits of IIoT radar level devices and how nice it is to have an affordable high-end choice for level monitoring.
 

The difference between monitoring and control

Most monitoring solutions have what we call an open loop. It means the field sensor responsible for measuring the process value sends its data to the supervision software or control system, which displays and stores this data. A monitoring application has no set point or command of a final element, such as a control valve, to run a control loop.

A control application also has a field sensor measuring and sending data to the system, but here the system has a set point for the application. It compares the process value against the set point and acts with a final element to correct the process value if necessary.

The final element can be a valve, pump, or other such instrument to act directly on the process, increasing or decreasing the value until it reaches the set point.

A monitoring application has a lower level of complexity than a control application. In a monitoring solution, you must measure the process value regularly and store this data. You’ll often find thresholds for minimum and maximum values in the application as well.

What are the challenges in remote level monitoring?

For instance, take an IBC level monitoring application, where the containers are always moving from Point A to Point B, and the location has no local control. Here are four relevant challenges to consider when you want to find the best remote level monitoring in this case.

Value

For monitoring applications, most users want a cheap solution because it's just monitoring. But in most cases, they’re controlling raw materials and consumables, directly affecting the numbers.

If your cheap choice lacks accuracy, you’ll probably regret it. Instead, consider the new low-budget radar level transmitter. It brings high accuracy to monitoring applications at an affordable price, making it a solid option to implement.

Power supply

In applications where IBC tanks are always moving, you’ll want a battery-powered level sensor. It’ll save you time, money, and hassle over cables or other such installation structures.

But that makes battery life a critical point. As a user, you don't want to change the battery every week, do you? A balance between battery life and update rate is essential in this type of application, and new IIoT radars on the market can provide this benefit.

Remote communication

What if you find out that someone set up the device incorrectly, but the device is far away from you? Don’t scoff; it could happen. The ability to set the device up anywhere at any time is critical to remote monitoring.

The new IIoT level sensors offer straightforward setup and monitoring of your field devices, wherever they’re installed. Using connectivity such as NB-IoT, LTE-M, or 2G, you can access and set up your devices remotely. Pretty neat, huh? Data collection

Remote applications without control-system connections usually have a standalone application implemented. Today, we live in the cloud era, where it's simpler and more efficient to apply a cloud-based solution, so you can get access to all the process values and setups, then integrate them into other solutions.

For instance, Netilion Value and Netilion Inventory are outstanding services that work together with the Micropilot FWR30, an IIoT radar sensor. Netilion offers an excellent user interface on desktop and mobile and an optimized user experience, for smooth sailing.

Why should I use IIoT radar devices?

On the market, you can find a variety of working principles and standalones. IIoT radar sensors bring high-level technology to all kinds of applications, making them affordable and easy to implement.

On top of that, IIoT radar devices provide solid reliability, high accuracy, and stable measurements. It’s a pretty easy choice in most cases; IIoT radar with a cloud-based service is a state-of-the-art solution for a remote level application.
