Endress+Hauser flowmeters perform self-verification using a technology called Heartbeat Technology. Heartbeat Technology is a built-in diagnostic function that continuously monitors the performance of the flowmeter and provides alerts if any problems are detected.

The self-verification process typically includes the following steps:

  1. The flowmeter measures the flow rate of a liquid or gas.
  2. The flowmeter compares the measured flow rate to a known reference value.
  3. If the measured flow rate is within the specified tolerance, the flowmeter is considered to be operating within its normal range.
  4. If the measured flow rate is outside the specified tolerance, the flowmeter will generate an alarm or error message.

The self-verification process is typically performed every few minutes or hours, depending on the application. The frequency of the self-verification process can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of the application.

Heartbeat Technology is a valuable tool for ensuring the accuracy and reliability of Endress+Hauser flowmeters. It can help to prevent costly downtime and production losses.

Here are some of the benefits of using Heartbeat Technology:

  • Increased accuracy and reliability: Heartbeat Technology helps to ensure that the flowmeter is operating within its normal range and providing accurate measurements.
  • Early warning of problems: Heartbeat Technology can detect problems early on, before they cause major disruptions. This can help to prevent costly downtime and production losses.
  • Reduced maintenance costs: Heartbeat Technology can help to reduce maintenance costs by preventing unnecessary repairs.
  • Improved documentation: Heartbeat Technology provides detailed documentation of the flowmeter’s performance, which can be used to troubleshoot problems and improve efficiency.

If you are looking for a reliable and accurate flowmeter that can help to improve your plant’s performance, Endress+Hauser flowmeters with Heartbeat Technology are a great option.
