Endress+Hauser launch ‘smallest transmitter’ for Memosens sensors
Process automation experts Endress+Hauser have launched what they claim to be the “smallest transmitter” for Memosens sensors. The Liquiline Compact CM82 transmitter is compact enough to fit even the most restricted assemblies but is smart enough to be operated via Bluetooth using any iOS or Android device. PIF explores the features and benefits of this small but mighty transmitter.
Liquiline Compact CM82 transmitter
If you have measuring points where installation space is restricted and you require a high degree of measured value availability for your production process, Endress+Hauser has developed an intriguing new transmitter proposition with the Liquiline Compact CM82.
This miniscule new transmitter’s housing is so slender that it fits, together with the sensor, into almost every assembly. Despite its small envelope, the Liquiline Compact CM82 is packed full of the latest transmitter technology, not least the fact that it can be operated remotely via Bluetooth from any iOS or Android device.
Convenient and connected Memosens pH sensor
Using the SmartBlue app, which you can download for free from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, you can see all the measuring points within the Bluetooth range of your tablet and smartphone, as well as perform configuration and diagnosis functions with the ultimate ease and convenience. The Bluetooth connection is uniquely secure against unauthorised access by third parties, as confirmed by the German Fraunhofer Institute for Applied and Integrated Security (AISEC).
The Liquiline Compact CM82 is compatible with all the transmitters, analysers and samplers from the Liquiline platform. This means that you can use sensors of the same type at all measuring points. All pH, ORP, conductivity and oxygen sensors with the blue Memosens plug-in head can be connected. This allows you to make use of the numerous benefits that Memosens technology has to offer, including 100% reliable data transmission and true plug-and-play with pre-calibrated sensors.
CM82 Memosens sensor requires minimal parameterisation and wiring
As a loop-powered two-wire device, the CM82 can be connected directly to a programmable logic controller (PLC), which also serves as the power supply. This eliminates the need for a power cable. A cable for the sensor connection is also not necessary, since the sensor is plugged directly into the transmitter. As a result, you have a measuring point whose space requirement could hardly be lower and where the wiring effort is minimal.
If you parameterise a CM82 measuring point, all settings are saved in the device. In the case of a sensor exchange, the transmitter – and the measuring point configuration – always stays on-site. A new parameterisation is not necessary. In addition, the CM82 reads all sensor and calibration data stored in the head of a Memosens sensor. As a result, the sensor is automatically detected within seconds and your measurement is immediately ready for use after a sensor change.
