Plants run better with Yokogawa differential pressure transmitters.
At it’s heart, Yokogawa’s differential pressure transmitter with DPharp digital sensor offers the performance and device intelligence needed to get greater insight into your process.
Yokogawa’s DPharp digital sensor offers twice the performance and stability of the competitor’s analog sensors. The DPharp uses the latest in IC Chip-style design and manufacturing technology. Analog sensors are based on older design technology. Although analog sensors are good, the modern DPharp sensor out performs them. A Yokogawa transmitter with DPharp digital sensor will give you the consistent, reliable, accurate measurement you need.
Poor Performance = Lost Money
All remote seal system on the market use fill fluid to ‘transmit’ the process pressure from the remote diaphragm seal to the pressure sensor in the transmitter. The physical properties of the fill fluid change has process temperature and ambient temperature change causing the transmitter to measure inaccurately. This effect get worse the longer the capillaries are. The key is to filter out this ‘noise’ to get an accurate, consistent, reliable measurement. Yokogawa has a superior design, manufacturing process, and features to reduce this ‘noise’.
Signal characterization is a versatile function available on all Yokogawa pressure transmitters. The function is used to compensate the analog 4 to 20 mA output signal for non-linear applications. Such applications include tank strapping or flow measurements; but, it can be used in any application where the relationship between the pressure input and the desired output signal are known. This feature can use up to 10-points.
Greater Flexibility = Found Money
All of the process variable’s measured by Yokogawa’s transmitter can be displayed on the easy to read local indicator. The indicator can display any of the variables measured (DP, SP, Capsule temperature); alarm codes with short text; and a sweeping bar graph to give a graphical representation of the process. Fully programmable, the indicator is customizable for your needs. Unlike competitor’s transmitters, the indicator is not driven off the 4 to 20 mA analog signal, but, exist on a separate circuit. This allow the display to operate independently from the output signal, so it can indicate information that maybe more useful at the transmitter location.
More information = Found Money
Yokogawa’s transmitter has 40 self-diagnostic checks to ensure that everything is running smoothly within the transmitter. But, all transmitters on the market have a level self-diagnostic checks. However, Yokogawa has two that are not offered by competitors. First, the transmitter features a patented Back-check Technology that reverse checks all calculations in real-time. Second, the DPharp sensor is an active sensor. This means that the sensor is constantly supplying a signal even when the process has not changed. If the signal is lost from the sensor, the transmitter knows there is an issue. Competitor’s analog sensors are passive. They do not supply a continual signal, so, is the sensor still working when there is no signal?
