Configuration and setup appear easy--prompted by menu-driven interface. "It actually can be accomplished in four different ways depending on the customer's need and preferred operating method," adds Richardson. "The user can configure via free software provided with the transmitter, with a HART handheld, with asset management software, or via the [optional] pushbuttons on the transmitter."


A Histo-ROM/M-DAT memory module enables quick duplication of measuring points without the use of a handheld configurator or configuration software. "We provide process monitoring of pressure/temperature values, events and transmitter configuration changes, and analysis and graphical evaluation are accomplished with our ToF tool software," says Richardson.


The Cerabar and Deltabar devices have built-in diagnostic software functionality, including a process window for predictive maintenance of the process, an operating-hours counter that allows analysis of transmitter history and events, the ability to easily check the integrity of the loop by simulating transmitter events, and a history of the past 15 alarm events to make service easy. In addition, the active diagnostics system monitors the measuring cell and provides an alert on sensor fail.


Both product families are being tested for SIL2—a recent evaluation from states that they're suitable for use in Safety Instrumented Systems.


"We designed with plant safety in mind," says Richardson. "Our 'theme' for this product launch is that these new pressure products combined with our new temperature transmitters offer customers a safe choice."


According to Richardson, Endress+Hauser research focused on designing a safe pressure alternative—by guiding the process according to IEC61508 standards—especially for the chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas, pulp and paper and primary industries. "The products feature a comprehensive safety package and intelligent operating and instrument concept," he states.
