Radar level transmitters with diagnostics and instrument verification
Endress+Hauser’s Micropilot FMR5X free-space radar and FMP5X levelflex guided radar level transmitters feature Heartbeat Technology, which is an on-board diagnostics and instrument verification system. It is designed to continuously monitors the status of mechanical, electromechanical and electronic components in the sensor, and sends alerts when it detects a problem. Heartbeat Technology is also able to perform device verification in accordance with requirements of the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil & gas, chemical and other industries. Such requirements call for level instruments to be removed and calibrated unless in-situ verification proves the device is operating properly. Verification information, reports, diagnostics alerts and instrument data can be viewed at the control and monitoring system, or via a web browser running on a PC, tablet or smartphone.
