Go Wireless Without Breaking the Bank, or Your Systems

Running physical wires between devices can be costly and time consuming, especially when there is a need to run them through conduit or dig trenches. Facilities that have been in operation for a long time may have gone through many iterations of process control equipment, leaving behind a rat's nest of old wires which make running of new wires nearly impossible. Certain applications can even prohibit the use of physical wires entirely, such as filling stations at shipping docks and truck terminals where the transmitter is located on the vessel or vehicle.

Level Measurement Technologies In The Process Control Industry

Few things are as ubiquitous in the process control industry as the need to measure the level of a process material in a container. Whether that material is water, waste water, petroleum, sugar, or any other form of liquid or solid, level measurement accuracy can be a determining factor in both profit margins and safety.

How to Measure Flow Rate with Level Sensors

Level sensors are capable of measuring more than just level. Flow rate measurement in an open channel, such as a stream, irrigation canal, or unpressurized sewerage pipe, can be accomplished using hydraulic structures known as weirs and flumes. These measure flow rate using the same technologies often applied to tank level measurement, such as bubblers, radar, and ultrasonic level transmitters.

Reducing Signal Noise in Practice

Signal noise in an industrial environment has the ability to cause havoc with process control systems. This electrical noise can inject itself onto analog or digital signals and fool control equipment into thinking the process variable is different from what it actually is. This miscommunication between process control equipment, as with all kinds of miscommunication, can lead to any number of unforeseen, unintended consequences. As any electrical engineer will tell you, no system can continue to function properly without proper communication.

Be ready for the Summer Sun with Sunlight Readable Displays

With the summer months ahead, many are looking forward to bright and sunny days. However, to those who work with process instrumentation outdoors, the sun may seem a never-ending source of frustration. All too often the local displays and controllers they count on to do their job become unreadable from the bright and direct sunlight. There are many options available, however, to provide clear displays that can be seen even in the brightest direct sunlight.

Level Monitoring & Pump Control with the ProVu PD6000

Level measurement and pump control go hand-in-hand, whether it is making sure that your tanks stay full or that they don’t overflow. Traditionally, however, these two processes required separate devices, a pump controller and a level indicator. Precision Digital’s ProVu PD6000 level display and pump controller combines these important tasks into one device. Not only that, but the PD6000 also offers advanced multi-pump alternation control functionality which can help maximize the life-span of your pumps.

Alarming Possibilities: ISA Alarm Sequencing In A Nutshell

The ideal industrial facility is one in which all process variables remain consistently within normal operating parameters. Such facilities are few and far between, however, so it is necessary that personnel are quickly and effectively notified of abnormal process conditions so that they may be dealt with accordingly. In industrial facilities where there are a multitude of process variables at play, such as automated manufacturing plants, waste water treatment facilities, and the oil and natural gas industries, implementing a successful alarm indication protocol can quickly become frustratingly complex.

Boosting Efficiency in a Natural Gas Flow Application

The end user is a natural gas transportation and storage service provider in the USA with a natural gas storage well flow application. The customer's primary concern when considering a system upgrade was to track flow rate and display the rate locally. The plant contains 180 Class I, Div 2 hazardous area stations in total. The locations are spread out over a five-mile radius and are controlled and monitored from a single control room. The system turnaround was completed over three years.

The Current Quandary: Ground Loops & Non-Isolated Commons

Any installer of industrial process control equipment will tell you that ground loops are one of the most frustrating signal connection errors to diagnose and repair. The steps required in order to troubleshoot them are often equated to something as mysterious as magical incantations. Issues caused by shared, non-isolated commons are viewed with a similar outlook. Difficulties with shared signal returns are often even confused with ground loops. Ground loops and shared commons can both cause unpredictable signals and render your current loop unusable.

Hazardous Area Classifications: What You Need to Know

During the evening of February 7th, 2008, a series of explosions at the Imperial Sugar manufacturing facility in Port Wentworth, Georgia, just outside of Savannah, resulted in the deaths of fourteen workers and numerous injuries. According to Georgia Fire Commissioner John Oxendine, "It was a very large explosion that totally destroyed the three-story building where it took place." The explosion is believed to have been fueled by the ever-present sugar dust, an inherent aspect of the sugar refining process, which would coat surfaces and equipment in the facility.

Back to Basics {Part 3}: Loop vs Line Power

The previous article in this series discussed loop-powered, or two-wire, devices. These instruments utilize the power supplied to the current loop to power themselves. A two-wire connection may not always be the most optimal power solution because of its inability to power devices that require a large voltage drop. Three and four-wire devices incorporate an external power supply in order to effectively eliminate the voltage drop placed on the process signal current loop. It is important to understand the differences between these three setups as they are fundamentally different and each has its own advantages as well as limitations.

Back to Basics {Part 2}: The Fundamentals of Loop-Powered Devices

Recalling from the previous part of this series, all 4-20 mA current loops require a power supply in order to operate. A lot of loop setups will utilize an external power supply in order to power the devices which are attached to the current loop. It is possible, however, to power all the instruments on the loop with the power supplied for the loop itself. These devices are referred to as loop-powered. This particular setup can be used in situations where it is not practical to supply separate power to all of the devices or in hazardous areas where a low power solution is required. Working in an industry that requires process control, it is imperative to understand whether implementing a loop-powered solution is appropriate or not for your setup.

Back to Basics {Part 1}: The Fundamentals of 4-20 mA Current Loops

In the world of process control, there are a myriad of different types of process inputs. Thermocouples and RTDs provide direct temperature reading while digital signals such as Modbus® provide exacting control over process variables and display. Analog signals, where information about the process is transmitted via varying amounts of voltage or current, are the predominant type of input in industries requiring process control today. Of all possible analog signals that can be used to transmit process information, the 4-20 mA loop is, by far, the dominant standard in the industry. As major as the 4-20 mA loop standard has become in the process control industry, many do not understand the fundamentals of its setup and use. Not knowing the basics could potentially cost you money when it comes time to make decisions about process display and control. Having a grasp on the history, workings, pros and cons of the 4-20 mA loop will help you to understand why it is the dominant standard for the industry and allow you to make informed decisions about your process control.

Best Planning Practices for Level Solutions

While level applications can be found in countless industries and applications, there are certain key elements that should be considered as part of any level control solution. Level applications can range from managing pump operation in a simple underground sump to the displaying of storage levels in a massive outdoor tank farm. In all of these applications, local display and control is critical to the success of the application solution. The best practices listed below will improve the safety, efficiency, and operator confidence in any level application.

Unlock the Potential of Your Modbus® Transmitters

Flow, level, temperature, and pressure transmitters are extremely common in the process industry. While the 4-20 mA signal loop is still extremely popular,modern transmitters are often sold with Modbus capabilities. In many cases, the 4-20 mA transmitters have Modbus capabilities that are not used, in favor of the 4-20 mA loop output. This is usually due to un- familiarity with Modbus and the ease with which the 4-20 mA loop can be used to display process variables to the operator. Another way of looking at it is that the 4-20 mA loop is used because the operators are familiar with this technology, and it’s easy to connect a panel meter or field display to the transmitter.

An Introduction to Modbus® Communications

When working with digital panel meters and controllers, a lot of engineers have asked us for an introduction to Modbus® serial communications. Digital panel meters are available with a wide range of features and options. One feature common on more advanced digital panel meters is Modbus serial communications, often with RS-485, RS-232, or USB connections available. Precision Digital's ProVu® Series is a good example of this. This article will discuss what Modbus communications is, some popular ways to use it, and explain some of the terms often associated with using it.

When is a 4-20 mA Output Needed on My Panel Meter?

When working with digital panel meters and controllers, a lot of engineers have asked us when is a 4-20 mA output needed on my panel meter? Most digital panel meters, controllers, and indicators have the option of a 4-20 mA output. While a very popular feature, it is worth considering whether this output is really needed for your application, and when it might be adding needless complexity and costs to a system. In this article, we will briefly review common reasons why you would or would not need a 4-20 mA output.

Five Considerations for Selecting a Remote Level Display

Level is one of the most commonly measured process values in a wide range of applications and industries. Available level transmitters range from mechanical floats and contact probes to radar and ultrasonic sensors. Whatever the type, these transmitters are almost universally difficult and dangerous to access. Even if a display is included, the small built-in displays are difficult to read once installed. Including a remote level display showing easy to understand engineering units in a convenient location is a critical step in developing a level measurement solution. Considering the following five topics will help you create a safe, effective, and efficient level measurement system. Including the right level display to accompany a level transmitter can have a dramatic impact.

ProVu Series Safety Interlock Feature

A common application for Precision Digital's ProVu series is for monitoring & alarming. In these applications, the meter is not used as a primary controller, but a safety device. As such, Precision Digital added another safety feature called Interlock Relay. This feature allows a process to use very low input signals or dry contacts to signal the ProVu that an event occurred that should cause one or more "normally opened" (N/O) assigned relay contacts to "open". While its main purpose is to remove power from a final control element in the event of a safety violation, it is likely that this feature will be used for many more applications as its configuration is very versatile.

Nova Controller Automatic/Manual Output Control Switching

A quick guide to setting up fast switching between PID (Auto) and manual control output modes on PD540 Series Nova Controllers. This makes switching modes faster and easier, without the need to enter setup menus.

Nova Controller On/Off Control Capabilities

The PD540 series Nova Digital Controller are capable of both PID and simple On/OFF control. When On/Off control is enabled, all PID based parameters and groups, such as G.PID and G.AT are disabled. During On/Off control, the Output 1 relay is locked into a control function. Sub1 and Sub2 relays (options) can be set for On/Off control or as alarms. The analog outputs maintain their normal setup options, however the control output levels will only function at 0 or 100 percent of full scale.

Nova Controller Independent Dual Manual 4-20 mA Controls

This note describes how to use a PD540 series Nova Digital Controller with two analog outputs to generate two independently controlled, manually controlled, 4-20 mA signals. The 4-20 mA signals act independently of the sensor input. To accomplish this, two types of manual 4-20 mA control must be established. One output will be tied to the Set Point. The other will be tied to the manually controlled percent full scale output.

Nova Controller 4-20 mA Output Control Using the Set Point

The PD540 Series Nova Controllers 4-20 mA output can be controlled using the set point display for easy manual control using engineering units...

Loop Leader Series LCD Display Cold Temperature Operating Characteristics

Precision Digital Corp. offers two different environmental temperature specifications for the Loop Leader product series. The first is an Operating Temperature Range (OTR) which is the range recommended for optimum operation. The second is Allowable Temperature Range (ATR), which is the allowed temperature exposure limits with degraded performance. On the Loop Leader series, the ATR is –40° to 65°C. The only difference between these two specifications is that the LCD display becomes less readable (contrast diminishes and the update rate slows) as it approaches the –40°C temperature stated in the ATR. Some users find this acceptable. While all LCD displays have this characteristic at very cold temperatures, the Loop Leader™ series is more affected since it has a 120-segment LCD display (vs. 28-segment on our PD686, for example). Each segment on the LCD display has a liquid crystal that begins to freeze at those temperatures. However, once the display warms back up, readability improves once again. Neither the display nor the rest of the indicator suffers any permanent damage from this low temperature exposure and the warranty is not affected.
