The EJX-A series is Yokogawa’s premium performance line of DPharp transmitters. Released in 2004, it offers the performance and stability needed in demanding applications. The EJX-A series performance makes it the the thoroughbred of the DPharp family of pressure transmitters.
The EJX438A Standard features include:
- ± 0.15% Accuracy
- 200 ms Response Time
- Exida and TUV SIL2 / SIL3 Certified
- Capillary Fill Fluid Density Compensation
- Local Parameters Setting (LPS)
Yokogawa’s DPharp digital sensor offers twice the performance and stability of the competitor’s analog sensors. The DPharp uses the latest in IC Chip-style design and manufacturing technology. Analog sensors are based on older design technology. Although analog sensors are good, the modern DPharp sensor out performs them. A Yokogawa transmitter with DPharp digital sensor will give you the consistent, reliable, accurate measurement you need.
All remote seal system on the market use fill fluid to ‘transmit’ the process pressure from the remote diaphragm seal to the pressure sensor in the transmitter. The physical properties of the fill fluid change has process temperature and ambient temperature change causing the transmitter to measure inaccurately. This effect get worse the longer the capillaries are. The key is to filter out this ‘noise’ to get an accurate, consistent, reliable measurement. Yokogawa has a superior design, manufacturing process, and features to reduce this ‘noise’.
Signal characterization is a versatile function available on all Yokogawa pressure transmitters. The function is used to compensate the analog 4 to 20 mA output signal for non-linear applications. Such applications include tank strapping or flow measurements; but, it can be used in any application where the relationship between the pressure input and the desired output signal are known. This feature can use up to 10-points.
All of the process variable’s measured by Yokogawa’s transmitter can be displayed on the easy to read local indicator. The indicator can display any of the variables measured (DP, SP, Capsule temperature); alarm codes with short text; and a sweeping bar graph to give a graphical representation of the process. Fully programmable, the indicator is customizable for your needs. Unlike competitor’s transmitters, the indicator is not driven off the 4 to 20 mA analog signal, but, exist on a separate circuit. This allow the display to operate independently from the output signal, so it can indicate information that maybe more useful at the transmitter location.
Ruggedly constructed differential pressure transmitter can help your plant reduce failures. Yokogawa pressure transmitters have construction features that are designed to allow it to outlive your plant. Four-bolt pressure retaining design, Active DPharp sensor, Teflon coated 316L stainless steel flange gasket, and dual seal certified to ANSI/ISA 12.27.01 – all design features to extend the life of the transmitter.
Patented Self-check System
Yokogawa’s pressure transmitters as a patented real-time reverse check of the signal to ensure all calculations are preformed correctly. This system ensures that the transmitter is converting the signal from the sensor into the analog signal and digital protocol correctly.
Extended Calibration Intervals
Yokogawa’s pressure transmitters have a long-term stability under all operational conditions. As you gain experience with these transmitters, you will be able to extend the time between calibration checks.
Multiple Communication Options
Yokogawa offers several platforms to communicate to your transmitter.
FieldMate is a PC based communication platform that can communicate with your transmitter and manage your entire instrument inventory.
FieldMate HHC is a traditional hand-held platform that allows you to take that information into the field.
Forgot your HHC? No problem. The LPS feature on the transmitter allows you to update 9 parameters without the use of an HHC.
When your transmitter is ‘alarming’, you do not have the time to look for the manuals and go through them trying to figure out what is wrong; you need to get the transmitter up and operating again as quick as possible. Yokogawa’s pressure transmitters have a simple description of the error code available on the local display. This simple description may help you correct the problem and get back to making product quickly. If you need more help, the manual does have a full description of all codes and suggest corrective actions.
