Remote monitoring and
display solutions
Instrumentation readings in any location – including
over the web – for around-the-clock monitoring.
Answers for industry.
Get your instrumentation readings
where you want them – at your vessel
or over the web
We understand the challenges of your process. With your investment in process instrumentation, you
know what's in your tanks and vessels at all times. With systems integrated into your control system,
operators have information at their fingertips. But when you are off site or elsewhere in your facility and
want to know what is in a specific tank, what do you do? Siemens remote monitoring and display solutions offer you the flexibility of getting tank readings locally or from your web browser.
Siemens displays are flexible, easy
to install, and built to last:
• Instrumentation friendly – compatible
with most level, flow, pressure, temperature, weighing, and other process devices
• Easy to install and operate – configurable out of the box, so no need for an
installation specialist
• Condition independent – low light,
high light, long distance viewing, remote
sites: we have a local or remote solution
that will work in most environments
• Data your way – universal input options
mean you can connect to our devices
with your existing equipment: Modbus,
RTD, 4-20 mA, thermocouple, digital,
and 0 to 10 V
• Communications options – a product
line that offers a broad range of communications and protocols
• Remote or internet access to data –
SITRANS RD500 provides remote access
to your instrument measurements via
web, email, SMS, FTP, and Modbus TCP
• World-class support – products from
Siemens are always backed by technical
support when and where you need it,
with online support available around the
clock and a global network of specialists
SITRANS RD500 – Anytime,
High capacity datalogger
stores 2 GB of data
SITRANS RD500 allows remote monitoring of
many device types using standard communication options such as Ethernet and cellular
modem. This is the ideal complement to any
remote monitoring application, allowing direct
Flexible input
options including
Modbus RTU
and optional
conventional IO
access to instrument readings via computer
(such as smart phones, laptops, or most
devices supporting a web browser, email, SMS,
or FTP).
Ethernet or cellular offer both
GPRS and 3G modem support
Remote displays put information
where you can see it
Remote displays bring you the flexibility of seeing instrumentation readings in a convenient location for your
operators. There are times when information in the control room or on the instrument is not enough. Siemens'
selection of displays gives you an inexpensive view into your processes. From a simple display to a universal or
multi-line display, you choose what is best for you.
SITRANS RD100 is a 2-wire loop powered, NEMA4X/IP67
enclosed display for indoor and outdoor applications
and in safe or hazardous areas.
SITRANS RD200 is a universal input, panel mount
display. It accepts a single input of current, voltage,
thermocouple, or RTD, making it the right fit for use
with most field instruments.
Hazardous environments are not a problem for the
SITRANS RD100. It is approved by FM and CSA as Intrinsically Safe and non-incendive. This gives you peace of
mind to install it in dusty or combustible environments.
A wide temperature range for operation from -40 to 85 ºC
(-40 to 185 ºF), means that this display can endure everything from arctic-like conditions to sweltering sunshine,
making it ideal to install indoors or outdoors.
Set up SITRANS RD200 as a standard panel mount, or
combine it with optional enclosures to house up to six
displays, saving you valuable space in your panels.
The large 3.5 x 1" (8.9 x 2.54 cm) digital display is easy
to read. No squinting or magnifying glasses needed!
SITRANS RD200 is simple to set up and program via front
panel buttons or remotely using Siemens remote display
A quick two-step process for calibration keeps programming simple. Only two non-interacting potentiometers
are required.
When you need logged data, this is your ideal display.
Data can be remotely collected, logged, and presented
from as many as 100 displays on your local computer
using free downloadable RD software.
SITRANS RD200 optional large display
In areas where the path to the remote display is
obstructed, the large display option provides greater
visibility with a 35 millimeter (1.2 inch) display. That
is twice as large as the standard display! Operators
can read the SITRANS RD200 at a distance of up to ten
meters (30 feet), providing an easy-to-read output.
Dual-line display can show
current measurements and a
totalized value at the same time
Flexible outputs include
4 to 20 mA, Modbus RTU,
and up to eight relays
SITRANS RD300 is an easy-to-read panel mount dual-line
display. Need to view more than one piece of information at
the same time? SITRANS RD300 features two programmable
display lines for providing real time measurements for your
application. Process values, rate, total, grand total, units or
legends – whatever readings you need.
With flexible outputs including 4 to 20 mA, Modbus RTU,
and up to eight relays, SITRANS RD300 can provide pump
control, for example, while integrating into most alarm or
process control systems.
Local logging and configuration is also supported easily
through PC software and 32-point linearization makes
non-standard tank shapes as simple to measure as standard
tanks. Offering eight brightness levels, this display will
provide the ideal illumination level regardless of light
conditions and mounting placement.
SITRANS RD300 is the newest addition to Siemens remote
digital display family.
