OPTIBAR 5060 EDP: KROHNE ADDS AN ELECTRONIC DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE VERSION TO THE OPTIBAR FAMILY
OPTIBAR 5060 EDP enables electronic differential pressure measurement for level measurement in open and closed vessels. OPTIBAR 5060 eDP provides a cost-efficient connection to and installation on the vessel.
With OPTIBAR 5060 eDP, KROHNE adds an electronic differential pressure (eDP) version to the OPTIBAR family. It aims at level, density and differential pressure applications within closed vessels as well as density compensated level measurement in open tanks.
Compared to classic DP installations with diaphragm seal and capillaries, OPTIBAR 5060 eDP provides a cost-efficient connection to and installation on the vessel: it requires smaller process connections, and the connection between taps is realised via an electronic signal cable instead of oil filled capillaries.
The OPTIBAR 5060 eDP can be configured with metallic or ceramic process diaphragms, a wide range of (hygienic) process connections, various communication options up to FF and Profibus-PA, and housing materials from plastic to stainless steel.
OPTIBAR 5060 eDP also features an integrated static pressure measurement for additional process information. It comes with various industry-specific approvals and is SIL 2/3 certified, with the possibility of remote activation of SIL mode via display, DTM or Bluetooth.
