Feeling the pressure

Foxboro have released a new range of I/A Series pressure sensors designed to provide flexibility in process automation.

Foxboro are confident that all transmitters in the Series can use any electronics module, including microprocessor-based 4-20 mA, HART, FoxCom and Foundation Fieldbus modules.

The I/A transmitter uses silicon strain gauge sensor technology, with accuracies of 0.07% of span. A full range of materials is available to meet any aggressive process duty and Foxboro’s ‘Value Package’ option is said to provide full stainless steel construction with wetted parts in Cobalt Nickel Chrome alloy.

Full CENELEC certification is included on all transmitters, which comply with the latest European ATEX directives and the epoxy coated topworks is designed to protect against aggressive environmental conditions.

The features designed into the I/A Series transmitter are said to save installation and commissioning time and reduce life-cycle costs on process plants.

Rotatable topworks, dual conduit entry’s, compact lightweight two bolt body, unique tangential vents and drains, all ensure quick and easy installation in any mounting position.

New to the range is the IMV 30 Multivariable transmitter. Utilising Polysilicon sensors, these transmitters are said to be capable of measuring multiple process variables on one element.
