Standardised instrument platform for pressure measurement

September 20th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Endress+Hauser’s standardised instrument platform for pressure measurement not only helps save costs in production but also in the warehouse. Inventory warehouses often contain far too many instruments from too many suppliers. This offers the procurement manager considerable cost-cutting potential, as it costs money to maintain material master data for every storage point and every instrument in storage. Regardless of the measurement parameter, every company is looking to standardise its instruments and keep the number of different types and models to a minimum. To ensure that at least the “mechanics” fit, it makes sense to define a factory standard that specifies uniform process connections, lengths and communication protocols. Standardised spare parts, such as electronic inserts and display units, make for short repair times. Just one transmitter allows you to “turn down” and serve several measuring ranges, such as 6 bar, 10 bar, 16 bar and 25 bar.
