  • Patent number: 10378942
    Abstract: A method for operating a Coriolis mass flowmeter having at least one controller, at least one electric actuating device, at least one electromagnetic driving mechanism with a drive coil as oscillation generator, at least one measuring tube and at least one oscillation sensor involves excited oscillation of the measuring tube being detected by the oscillation sensor and emitted as at least one output signal and the electric actuating device causing the electromagnetic driving mechanism to produce oscillation of the measuring tube largely in resonance by the output signal of the oscillation sensor, the drive voltage at the drive coil, and phasing of the drive current in relation to the phasing of the output signal of the oscillation sensor being determined and a new target phasing for the drive voltage derived from the determinations and supplied to the controller to generate a drive voltage with the new target phasing.

  • Patent number: 10337901
    Abstract: A method for operating a Coriolis mass flowmeter that has at least one measuring tube with medium flowing through it involves exciting the measuring tube excited to oscillation, detecting the oscillations of the measuring tube and determining the density of the medium. Detection of the state and a change in the state of a Coriolis mass flowmeter is achieved by determining a calibration temperature and a calibration density sensitivity of the Coriolis mass flowmeter using the detected oscillations, at a temperature differing from the calibration temperature, and a density sensitivity of the flowmeter determined using the detected oscillations. A measurement rate of change of the density sensitivity is determined and a forecast rate of change of the density sensitivity is calculated using a forecast algorithm, and at a given deviation of the measurement rate of change from the forecast rate of change rp, a deviation signal is generated.

  • Patent number: 10082780
    Abstract: A field device and a method for parameterization of a field device are disclosed. The method includes transmitting a parameter value to the field device from a parameterization unit. The method also includes generating a feedback character string from the received parameter value by the field device and the transmitting feedback character string to the parameterization unit. The method further includes outputting the received feedback character string by the parameterization unit so that it is understandable for the user.

  • Patent number: 10044348
    Abstract: A method for operating a field device, and a field device that is operated according to the method, in which a measured value is generated, the measured value being assigned a current set point, a target current signal being issued depending on the current set point, wherein an actual current signal is fed back and the target current signal is compared to the actual current signal. To provide more exact comparison of signals a cross-correlation of the target current signal with the actual current signal is formed for comparison.

  • Publication number: 20180143064
    Abstract: A method for operating a Coriolis mass flowmeter having at least one measuring tube, at least one oscillation generator, at least two oscillation sensors, and at least one control and evaluation unit, the oscillation generator and the oscillation sensors being arranged on the measuring tube, wherein the measuring tube has a medium flowing through it, wherein the oscillation generator puts the measuring tube into a harmonic oscillation with the excitation frequency f0 and the excitation amplitude A0, wherein the first and the second oscillation sensors detect the oscillation of the measuring tube and wherein the first oscillation sensor forwards the oscillation to the control and evaluation unit as first measuring signal and wherein the second oscillation sensor forwards the oscillation to the control and evaluation unit as second measuring signal, and wherein at least one comparison measurement signal is determined from the first measuring signal and/or the second measuring signal.

  • Publication number: 20170344751
    Abstract: A method for configuring a field device for use in custody transfer and such a field device, wherein the field device has a computing unit and a storage, wherein parameters and/or functions are stored in the storage, and wherein the parameters and/or functions are at least partially configurable. A more flexible configuration of the field device used for custody transfer is achieved by at least two blocking groups being provided, wherein each blocking group comprises at least one parameter and/or at least one function of the field device, at least one blocking group is chosen and evaluated by the computing unit, and the computing unit blocking the parameters and/or functions contained in the chosen at least one blocking group against a subsequent change.
