Gauge Pressure TransmittersSource: ABB
The 266 pressure transmitter family of products delivers previously unattainable operational benefits.
266: performance with intelligence.
From the design to the software functionality, the 266 represents the latest evolutionary step in the wide ABB product portfolio.
Users can easily find the right application solution for their measurement needs and select among four different levels of accuracy: from 0.075% up to 0.025% so as to boost plant availability for demanding pressure measurement. Accuracy is no longer a constraint.
TTG Technology: no more barriers between users and instruments
ABB is the first instrumentation company that is able to offer TTG Technology (Through The Glass). With this exclusive and innovative option, users can interact directly with the instrument, without removing the windowed front cover, saving cost and time, especially in hazardous areas. Using ABB’s proven four button HMI (Human Machine Interface) with intuitive menu navigation and Easy Set Up menu, configuration times can be greatly reduced. Moreover, expensive hand-held configurators are no longer necessary since all the essential parameters can be set via the HMI with just one touch.
Easy to use… starting from the outside
The external non-intrusive zero and span push buttons allow users to rerange the transmitter safely in a few seconds. An additional external write protection is also provided.
The 266 series never lets you down: plug-in communication board and terminal block
The new design enables in-field maintenance operations. Both terminal block and communication boards can be replaced in minutes without the need to reconfigure the transmitter. Failures due to lightening, wrong earth wiring, etc. are not now an issue: 266 is protecting your plant productivity smartly.
PILD: Plugged Impulse Line Diagnostic as standard
Process diagnostics will continuously protect your 266 HART / 4-20 mA, PROFIBUS PA and FOUNDATION Fieldbus pressure transmitters from the risk of impulse line clogging or freezing. Once a process anomaly is detected, the PILD function will generate a warning on the local LCD as well as via the communication protocol.
SIL2 and SIL3 TUV certified
The 266 series is certified by TUV NORD for use in safety instrumented systems as per the requirements of IEC61508. The transmitters meet the requirements for SIL2 applications in a single transmitter configuration (1oo1) and for SIL3 applications in a redundant configuration (1oo2).
