HART pressure transmitter is the smart pressure transmitter in the process industry. With 4-20mA, HART. So, you can calibrate your pressure transmitters with HART communicators.

HART pressure transmitter

HART pressure transmitter configured through distributed control system (DCS) or HART communicator. The HART pressure transmitter is compatible with the Highway Addressable Remote Transmitter (HART) communication protocol. The HART function can transmit pressure transmitter data through an AC digital signal. The AC digital signal uses a 4-20mA analog output signal as a carrier. This eliminates the need for additional wires and connectors.

What is a HART transmitter?

HART transmitters are much more complicated.
The HART transmitter has the same pressure input and 4-20 mA output. But it also has an analog current loop output. The device contains some digital variables and settings. Access to these digital parameters requires the use of a HART configurator or communicator. This is essential for maintaining these devices.
Just like Hart Communicator 375.
In fact, many HART devices, cannot be maintained without access to digital parameters.

What is HART calibrator?

HART calibrator is our HART communicator for calibrating instruments. For example pressure transmitter, DP transmitter, liquid level transmitter, flowmeter, and temperature transmitter.
HART communication protocol (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) is a hybrid analog + digital industrial automation open protocol.
Its most significant advantage is that it can communicate through the traditional 4–20 mA analog instrument current loop, sharing only a pair of wires used by the analog host system.
We use this protocol in the HART calibrator.

HART communicator (such as HART 475) is the most common HART calibrator.
The proprietary calibration process ensures optimal temperature compensation. This limits the thermal impact on the sensor output.
It is suitable for the global process control industry. It provides a cost-effective solution for the use of conventional HART transmitters (such as the HART 475 field communicator).

What is HART pressure transmitter?

HART pressure transmitter
HART pressure transmitters

HART pressure transmitter for configuration via distributed control system (DCS) or HART communicator.

The HART pressure transmitter is compatible with the Highway Addressable Remote Transmitter (HART) communication protocol. This protocol is the most popular standard used by intelligent field devices and is used by the process control industry.
The HART function can transmit pressure transmitter data through AC digital signals. It uses 4-20mA analog output signals as a carrier. There is no need for additional wires and connectors.

HART pressure transmitter can also be used with a paperless recorder.

How to calibrate HART pressure transmitters

A pressure transmitter is one of the most common instruments in a process plant. To assure its accuracy, it needs to be calibrated.

But what do you need to calibrate it and how is it done?

You may know how to calibrate a pressure transmitter? Or, how to calibrate a differential pressure transmitter? Then, calibrate HART pressure transmitters, kind of like pressure transmitter calibration using a hart communicator. Pressure transmitter manufacturers have improved accuracy and technology, designed into these smart pressure measurement devices.

How to calibrate HART pressure transmitters

To calibrate a pressure transmitter, you need:

loop supply (if not connected to the controls system’s loop supply);
a pressure generator to generate input pressure;
an accurate calibrator to measure the input pressure;
an accurate calibrator to measure the output mA current.

Typically, the pressure transmitter is a HART protocol transmitter. So in case, there is any need to adjust/trim it, you will need to use a device supporting HART communication.

How to calibrate HART pressure transmitters?

Explaining how to do the calibration would result in quite a long text. So we have put together a video for you instead. The video shows you how to calibrate and trim a HART pressure transmitter. Please have a look at the video: How to calibrate HART pressure transmitters

HART Pressure Transmitters Calibration Steps

How to calibrate HART pressure transmitters?

Total Time:

1. Isolate the transmitter from the process being measured and its loop wiring.

2. If measuring the mA signal across the transmitter test diode leave the wires intact, but note this method does not give the best mA measurement accuracy.

3. Connect the mA measurement jacks of the 754 to the transmitter.

4. Connect the pressure module cable to the 475, and connect the transmitter test hose from the hand pump to the transmitter.
Press the HART button on the calibrator to see the configuration of the transmitter.

5. Press HART again and the calibrator will offer the correct measure/source combination for the test.

6. If documenting the calibration press As-Found, input the test tolerance and follow the prompts.

7. If the measured mA signal at the test points is found within tolerance the test is complete.
If not, change is required.
Select, adjust, and trim the pressure zero, mA output signal and input sensor.

HART pressure transmitter working principle

HART pressure transmitter is one type of smart pressure transmitter.

Principle and Application of Diffusion Silicon Pressure Transmitter

The pressure of the measured medium directly acts on the diaphragm of the sensor (stainless steel or ceramic). Causing the diaphragm to generate a micro-displacement proportional to the pressure of the medium. The resistance value of the sensor changes. The electronic circuit detects this change and converts and outputs a standard measurement signal corresponding to this pressure.

Principle of capacitive pressure transmitter

The capacitive pressure transmitter is mainly composed of a capacitance sensor and circuit board. The sensor implements pressure-capacitance conversion. The circuit board converts the capacitance to a two-wire 4-20mA. When the process pressure is applied to the isolation diaphragm from both sides (or one side) of the measuring chamber, it is transferred to the central diaphragm of the chamber through the silicone oil filling liquid. The central diaphragm is a diaphragm with tensioned edges. Under the action of pressure, a corresponding displacement is generated. This displacement creates a change in differential capacitance! And through the adjustment, oscillation, and amplification of the electronic circuit board! Converted into 4-20mA signal output! The output current is directly proportional to the process pressure!

What is the pressure transmitter?

pressure transducer often called a pressure transmitter, is a transducer that converts pressure into an analog electrical signal.

Although there are various types of pressure transducers, one of the most common is the strain-gage base transducer.

The conversion of pressure into an electrical signal is achieved by the physical deformation of strain gauges, which are bonded into the diaphragm of the pressure transducer, and wired into a Wheatstone bridge configuration.

Pressure applied to the pressure transducer produces a deflection of the diaphragm, which introduces strain to the gages.

The strain will produce an electrical resistance change proportional to the pressure.

In general, a pressure transmitter consists of three main components: a pressure sensor, a measuring circuit, and a process connection.

The main function of the pressure transmitter is to convert the physical parameters of the gas, liquid and other physical parameters of the pressure sensor into a standard electrical signal.

The standard electrical signal is more convenient for indicating the alarm device, the adjusting device, the recorder, and the secondary instrument.
