Lesman News Update for September 2014

New from Siemens

Siemens SITRANS LR250 radar transmitters

2" Minimum Measuring Range from End of Antenna — Use more tank for your process!

New radar level transmitter for hygienic processes

In the last year, Siemens expanded its two-wire SITRANS LR250 radar transmitter to include a standard horn antenna version, a PVDF antenna model for corrosive and aggressive media, and a flanged encapsulated antenna for use in chemical and sanitary environments.

Now, Siemens has done it again, adding a hygienic encapsulated antenna transmitter for hygienic and sanitary applications in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and fine chemical industries. It features:

  • A flush-mounted lens antenna that reduces material buildup, great for clean-in-place applications
  • Requires just a 2" minimum measuring range from end of antenna to measure level – Lets you maximize the use of your tank
  • Popular hygienic mount variations to fit your process — as small as 2" sizes: ISO 2852 sanitary Tri-clamp, Aseptic/hygienic nozzle/slotted nut, flange, or clamps, Tuchenhagen Varivent types F and N
  • EHEDG (EL Class 1 and EL Class 1 Aseptic), 3A certifications, plus FDA and USP Class VI-approved materials
  • Great for smaller process tanks in food, pharmaceutical and beverage applications

All LR250 models comply with IEC 61508/61511 standards for functional safety (SIL 2) and come standard with HART communications for easy programming and monitoring, plus Siemens auto false echo suppression and Process Intelligence signal processing for improved measurement reliability.

UE One Series Safety Transmitter family

Free Webinar: Safety Systems 102
Safety Instrumented System Sensors

What is the difference between SIL 1 vs. SIL 2 vs. SIL 3? What do I need to build a safety instrumented system in my plant? If all my instruments are SIL-compliant, does that mean my process system is safe?

Late last year, Honeywell's Bob Stahl spoke to our customers about controls and logic solvers in Safety Instrumented Systems. With the release of United Electric's new One Series Safety Transmitters, we're diving further by discussing SIS sensors and their role in safety systems.

In our October webinar, UE's Scott Pierce will demonstrate a common-sense solution to complying with SIL2 applications, along with a low total cost solution for alarms and shutdown in basic process control systems!

His 45-minute webinar on the facts vs fiction of SIL 2 certification will cover these topics and more:

  • What's a Safety Instrumented System and why is it required?
  • Why are independent safety systems important?
  • What do the industry standards (IEC 61511 and 61508) mean to me?
  • What are Safety Integrity Levels?
  • Your questions answered: Live Q&A

Thursday, October 23, 9:00am Central (10:00am Eastern)

Please join us for the webinar. Or, if you're already booked then, register anyway and we'll let you know when the recording is posted to our website.
