Process Analytics announces the launch of the M100, a 2-wire transmitter for liquid analytics in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. With the M100, METTLER TOLEDO offers the world's first transmitter for analytical measurement based on a compact head mount design, and without a local interface. The new member of the company's transmitter portfolio offers global approvals for hazardous area use, and combines multi-parameter measurement with remote access to predictive sensor diagnostic tools over the HART communication protocol. The transmitter covers pH/ORP, dissolved oxygen, and conductivity measurements.
The possibility of remote access to sensor diagnostics over HART or the transmitter's second analog output, increases the communication capability and helps to avoid unplanned shutdowns. This leads to improved productivity and a reduction in operating costs. In addition, the M100 2-wire series includes the connection of METTLER TOLEDO's digital ISM sensors.
Intelligence is the key
This leap forward in field instrumentation is possible because ISM enables sensors to be calibrated away from the process in a convenient location such as a workshop, and quickly swapped in the field. This feature, called Plug and Measure, means measurement point start up is fast and error-free, and can be accomplished without significant know-how. Because of Plug and Measure, the M100 does not require a local interface. The support of all major asset management tools such as AMS (Emerson), PDM (Siemens) and the open standard FDT/DTM ensures the widest compatibility, and remote access to sensor diagnostics.
Installation in hazardous area
The new 2-wire transmitter series is designed for use throughout the chemical industries and therefore has approvals based on explosion proof/flameproof and intrinsically safe protection for installation in hazardous areas.
