The EJXC40A Digital Remote Sensor (DRS) transmitter connects two pressure sensors, the master sensor (for high-pressure side) and remote sensor (for low-pressure side) with DRS dedicated communication cable to measure differential pressure. The DP is transmitted via a 4 to 20 mA analog signal. EJXC40A is suitable to measure liquid, gas, or steam flow as well as liquid level, density and pressure.

- Suitable for level measurement of a tall tank
DRS cable length (maximum): 45 m
- Signal characterization for various tank types
- Exida SIL 2 / SIL3 Certified
Tall tanks that have process connection that are 50 feet or more apart can have a great deal of temperature effect when using traditional oil-filled capillary systems. The use of a DRS can minimize this effect by replacing the capillaries with electronic signal wiring.
Tank farms cast shadows that can leave one process connection in direct sun light and the other process connection in shade. This results in a differential temperature between the connections. This can cause errors in the differential measurement between the two connections. The DRS compensates locally for ambient temperature, reducing this error, so it’s not influenced by solar radiation and temperature change.
Extreme Low Ambient Temperature
Tank farms located outside can be exposed to extremely cold ambient temperatures. Measuring tank level in this environment using a differential pressure transmitter with oil-filled capillaries may require expensive heat tracing to keep the oil from freezing. Adding heat tracing gives the maintenance group another system to maintain. The DRS eliminates the need for heat tracing by replacing the oil-filled capillaries with electronic signal wiring.
