Endress+Hauser adds Heartbeat Technology to its Micropilot FMR5X free-space radar and FMP5X Levelflex guided radar level transmitters. Heartbeat Technology is an on-board diagnostics and instrument verification system that continuously monitors the status of mechanical, electromechanical and electronic components in the sensor, and sends alerts when it detects a problem. Alerts are sent in accordance with NAMUR recommendation NE 107 and are displayed at the device. Alerts include “Out of specification,” “Maintenance required,” “Device failure” and “Device OK.” The built-in diagnostics can detect process problems, such as build-up or foam before failure occurs.
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.
