September 15, 2015 —The Foxboro S Series Model IDP10S, an intelligent two-wire pressure transmitter from Schneider Electric, has been announced as a winner of a 2015 Flow ControlInnovation Award. The Foxboro IDP10S transmitter was selected from a field of 27 nominees and voted by the magazine’s readers as one of the year’s most exciting and significant new solutions for pressure and flow measurement.
The key to the award-winning performance and flexibility of the Foxboro IDP10S transmitter is in its innovative and patented FoxCal multiple calibration technology. Unlike a typical transmitter,
which requires the user to manually select and use a single calibration range suited to the specific application, the IDP10S transmitter can automatically select and use any of 11 preset calibration ranges housed in its onboard firmware. These calibration ranges cover the full pressure range of the transmitter. Upon installation, the S Series transmitter automatically selects the appropriate calibration range based on application inputs; and, if application inputs change, automatically transitions to another, more appropriate calibration range – all while maintaining a reference accuracy of 0.05%
