Siemens has announced what it boasts as the smallest and lightest Coriolis flow meter at the market, claims vendor Siemens. At the same time, the sensor offers a high accuracy of 0.1 percent. With dimensions of just 265 x 280 x 90mm and a weight of only 4.6kg in its most compact version, the Sitrans FC410 is intended for mechanical and plant engineering as well as for frame-mounted equipment.

The Mini Flow Link (MFL) concept enabled Siemens to integrate the functionality of the measuring transducer in the sensor case. The digital MFL allows significantly more compact designs without added complexity. Thus, the FC410 can be positioned flexibly within very small space without compromising reliability and accuracy. The MFL works at a speed of 10 scans per millisecond and provides besides flow data also data on mass, volume, density and temperature of the respective medium. The proprietary CompactCurve design ensures high reliability thanks to a stable zero point, low pressure loss and high resilience against process noise and oscillations.

Sitrans FC410

The Sitrans FC410 is designed for working pressures of up to 100 bar and temperatures between -50°C and 200°C. It is certified according to the most relevant standards (2A, EHEDG and FDA) for deployment in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

The sensor communicates across the RTU485 Modbus with Simatic and other common process control systems. This type of connectivity allows to integrate single devices as well as multiple sensors with multipoint addressing into existing or new systems. Startup requires just a simple one-time configuration within the control system connected with little programming effort.
