Sonic Intelligence® and Process Intelligence
Our patented Sonic Intelligence and Process Intelligence
signal processing technologies were developed using
knowledge provided by our field service engineers and
data from devices installed in real applications. Siemens
instruments offer the unique advantage of this technology. Both signal processing technologies differentiate
between true echoes from the material and false echoes
from obstructions or electrical noise. The sophisticated
software is continually updated and supported by field
data gained from more than a million applications. This
in-depth knowledge and experience is built into the software’s advanced algorithms to provide intelligent processing of echo profiles. The result is a repeatable, fast and
reliable measurement you can trust.
Even in harsh process conditions, Siemens radar transmitters are virtually unaffected. Non-contacting radar
technology means low maintenance and provides reliable
continuous level measurement for short to long-range
Siemens offers a variety of radar instruments. Process Intelligence signal processing software ensures reliable and
accurate level measurement and features Auto False-Echo
Suppression, a technique that can automatically detect
and suppress false echoes from vessel obstructions. This
ensures high performance and is easy to implement, using just a few parameter entries on the infrared handheld

Level Measurement
■■Guided Wave Radar
Guided wave radar uses Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR)
to measure level by guiding an electromagnetic pulse
down a probe (solid steel rod, steel cable or coaxial probe)
toward the material. When the pulse reaches the material
surface, the change in dielectric value between air and
the material causes a portion of the pulse to reflect back
toward the transmitter. Guided wave radar is unaffected
by vapor, density, foam, dielectric fluctuations, temperature, and pressure changes, and works well for short and

SIMATIC PDM uses this to automatically create an easy-touse interface providing the required information on the
process devices. The latest release of this standard allows
the implementation of state-of-the-art user interfaces:
– Intuitive Quick Start Wizards
– Enhanced graphical interface
Communication with process devices is by HART, PROFIBUS or alternative protocols. SIMATIC PDM can be used
as a universal parameterization tool as well as in the integrated version in the SIMATIC Step7/PCS 7 environment.
SIMATIC PDM meets all requirements from field level to
various types of industrial communication and central
engineering service and maintenance.
■■Asset Management
Asset Management comprises all activities and measures
designed to maintain or increase the value of a plant.
This primarily includes value-enhancing service and maintenance (plant-specific asset management) in addition to
business management, process management and process optimization. Because of its comprehensive functionality SIMATIC PDM is particularly suited to provide
the device data required for plant-specific asset management and transfer it to higher-level asset management
systems in XML format via a uniform interface. However,
SIMATIC PDM is much more than just a data logger for
higher-level asset management systems. It offers a wide
range of asset management functions as well.
Communication and Software
Decentralized automation solutions based on open field
buses are currently standard in many areas of the production and process industry. The benefits of digital communication can be fully exploited in combination with field
buses, including improved resolution of measurement
values, diagnostics options and remote parameterization.
PROFIBUS is currently the most successful open field bus,
providing a flexible platform for a variety of applications.
Based on the IEC 61158 standard, it is a reliable investment and suitable for fast communication in production
and process automation. It is the first field bus and meets
the requirements of both sectors with the same communication performance.
PROFIBUS PA is tailored to the requirements of the process
industry, handling both the power supply for the devices
and communication between the devices and higher-level
PROFIBUS PA is intrinsically safe and can be used in hazardous areas.
Field devices for measuring pressure, temperature, flow,
level and actuators are also available for the intrinsically
safe FF bus. Communication via FF is also based on the
EDD standard and thus also offers the benefits of digital
■■HART – field communication protocol
The HART® communication standard is used by more
than 30 million installed smart process instruments with
increasing numbers. The standard is managed by the HCF
(HART Communication Foundation) and extends analog
4 –20 mA signals to modulated, industry-quality, digital
HART signals. The advantage is the combination of triedand-tested analog measurement-value transfer and simultaneous digital communication with bi-directional, acyclic
transfer. This allows transfer of diagnostics, maintenance
and process information from field devices to higher-level
systems. Standardized parameter sets can be used for the
non-proprietary operation of all HART devices.
WirelessHART is an intelligent advancement of the proven
4 –20 mA HART technology released by the HART Communication Foundation (HCF) as part of Specification V7.
WirelessHART is backward compatible with wired HART
technology, and as such offers maximum protection for
investments in hardware and software, tools and expertise. WirelessHART is designed to communicate measured
process variables or setpoints via the network but also
diagnostic and maintenance information and para-meters.
WirelessHART uses state-of-the-art security technologies
to ensure network and data protection. Theses are e.g.
meshed network topology including redundancy, data
encryption, message integrity, etc.
Enhanced electronic device descriptions (EDD) are used to
integrate HART devices into the SIMATIC PDM.
This ensures simple operation and commissioning of field
devices, even in inaccessible locations.
Enhanced electronic device descriptions (EDD) are used to
integrate field devices in SIMATIC PDM or other tools like
Some tools in the market like PACTware or Fieldcare are
based on a technique called FDT (Field Device Tool). SITRANS DTM integrates EDDs from our devices in these
FDT-based tools.

Success factor Industrial Wireless Communication
To achieve lasting success in the face of global competition, companies need to permanently improve their productivity while minimizing the total cost of ownership.
This calls for new measures and new concepts.
Wireless solutions offer far more benefits than just the
elimination of cabling and installation costs. Users profit
e. g. from significantly faster commissioning and more
efficient maintenance, as well greater flexibility and mobility. And wireless technology ensures improvement
of production quality and safety in plants. In the end, all
of these advantages add up to greater overall plant
WirelessHART closes the gap of industrial wireless communication at field level in process automation.
Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) and GSM/GPRS-based
wireless wide area networks play a successful and important part at control and remote control level.

■■Flexible for installation, replacement or upgrading; ideal
for temporary measurements and for measurements on
moving or rotating equipment.
■■Cost-efficient for remote facilities and locations difficult
to access due to the environmental or technical conditions: significant cost savings for cabling, commissioning
and engineering, as well as reduced operating costs
thanks to increased plant efficiency and lower maintenance expenditure.
■■Maintenance-friendly thanks to access to valuable diagnostic information for enabling predictive maintenance
strategies. Maintenance expenditure for cables and connections are a thing of the past, so too is the manual
checking of the equipment status.
■■High plant availability and production quality through
optimized wireless installation, reduced black measurement points, higher transparency throughout the plant.
With our WirelessHART solutions, users profit not only
from lower total cost of ownership, but also from significantly improved security, reliability and productivity.

The use of WirelessHART products in process industry
applications can be classified as follows:
In many plants, HART devices are analog wired in a distributed control system (DCS). This means that a great deal
of valuable diagnostic information in the field is not available from a central maintenance station and so devices
must be maintained manually at regular intervals. This
leads in turn to high maintenance cost and the risk of
unscheduled downtimes.
Installation of a WirelessHART adapter on existing
4 – 20 mA HART instruments means that equipment information is accessible from maintenance station without
changing the system that is running. Access to valuable
diagnostic and device information offers a wide range of
advantages, including higher process performance and
reliability, improved maintenance approaches, etc.
WirelessHART solutions are considerably more cost-efficient and flexible than conventional concepts for improving production quality, plant safety or process transparency through the addition of new measuring points.
Problems with the physical wiring or cabling are a thing of
the past when you use WirelessHART solutions. So too are
high cabling costs for remote measuring points.
The optimum use of wired and wireless devices in one
system creates the best basis for a new standard of performance in automation.

■■Totally Integrated Automation – TIA
Totally Integrated Automation is characterized by its unique degree of integration
which ensures a high level of transparency
at all plant levels – from the field level to
the production control level and the corporate management level. This concept
provides considerable benefits throughout
the entire plant life cycle, from the initial
planning and engineering stages, commissioning, operations and maintenance right
through to modernization. The process instruments designed by Siemens have been
perfectly integrated into the TIA concept.
The SIMATIC PDM (Process Device
Manager) is used as a central parameterization tool to allow the user continuous
access to all the field devices of his plant.
Thanks to modern fieldbus communication like HART, PROFIBUS or FOUNDATION
Fieldbus the field devices can be integrated into the overall plant. By integrating the
devices into the PCS7 Asset Management
system the user receives diagnostics information from the field devices whenever
he needs it, allowing him to optimize the
servicing and maintenance of his plant and
avoid downtime.
