Some of the most common quantitiesexpressing performance and thereference conditions in which they aremeasured are described on this page.The following description conforms tothe IEC 546 and IEC 770 recommen-dations.Values of performance specificationsapply to 316 SS diaphragms, unlessstandard material otherwise defined.
Quantities used for expressingperformance
Non-linearity is the maximum deviationof the characteristic curve (of the averageof the increasing and decreasingportions) from the straight line drawn soas to minimize the deviation (= non-linearity with respect to independentstraight line).Conformity error is a term used insteadof non-linearity if the ideal characteristiccurve is not a straight line: conformityerror is the maximum deviation of theaverage-deviation curve from the idealcharacteristic curve drawn so as tominimize the deviation. Dead band, alsoknown as neutral zone, is the rangethrough which the input signal may varywithout causing any perceptible changein the output signal.Hysteresis, as a quantity expressingperformance, is defined as themaximum difference between theincreasing and decreasing output signalcorresponding to the same input signalvalue when the input signal is changedthrough the full range in both directions.
January 10, 2000Expressing performanceRepeatability is the maximum deviationof output signal values corresponding tothe same input signal value inconsecutive measurements, whenconditions remain unchanged and whenthis input signal value is alwaysapproached from the same directionwhile the input is changed through fullrange. Repeatability is calculated on thebasis of measurement results from theformula.
comparable performance values fromthe apparatus.In performance testing of the devices in-cluded in this catalogue the referenceconditions should be as follows:
Ambient conditions- ambient temperature: +20C 2C- relative humidity of air: 65 % 5 %- pressure of air: 860 to 1060 mbar
Electrical devices- supply voltage: nominal voltage 1 %- ripple 0.1 % (with DC voltage)
Pneumatic devices- supply pressure: nominal pressure 1 %- supply air temperature: ambient temperature: 2C- supply air humidity: dew point at least 10C lower than the temperature of the device being tested- supply air free from dust and oil, particle size less than 3 m.
Other conditionsPosition of device when tested: nominalposition (normal mounting position).Load: nominal load.

Process connectionsSome typical connections for tappingthe pressure are shown below. Fig. 1ais for liquids and gases, fig. 1b forsteam, and fig. 1c for high-pressureservice. Suggested material for thebranch shown in fig. 1c is e.g. St35.8 or13CrMo44. All burrs should be carefullyremoved from the tapping point. Theprocessor coupling must be weldedwith a thin compound rod (max.diameter 2.0 mm) to avoid harmfulthermal strains, Fig. 1d.
Connection pipeRecommended materials for theconnection pipe:- AISI304 stainless steel- AISI316 acid-resistant steelFor high pressure measurements(above 100 bar):- St35.8 or 13CrMo44 heat-resistantsteelsRecommended pipe dimensions(o.d. x wall thickness):- 12 1 mm, 12 1.5 mm, or 14 2.5 mm.
It is recommendable always to equipthe connection pipe with shut-off valvesand, when necessary, with a pressuregauge connection valve.
For low pressures and for fluids liable toform sediments a ball valve should beused as shut-off valve. A threaded orwelded needle valve is used for steamand high pressures.
Protection from pulsationIf pulsations caused by the processoccur at the point of measurement, theinstrument should be protected bymeans of a restriction, damping pot, orequivalent means. See figure 2 forconnection pipe configuration. After theshut-off valve there is a bend forprotective liquid or gas. A loop (12) isinstalled below the transmitter forcollecting condensates.Figure 2 gives an example of themeasurement pipe arrangement for apressure transmitter.Figure 3 illustrates some applications ofa pressure transmitter.
