The EJA438E is a gauge pressure transmitter featuring remote diaphragm seals and is part of the most recent evolution of the DPharp family, the EJA-E series. It can be used to measure liquid, gas, or steam pressure. EJA438E outputs a 4 to 20 mA DC signal corresponding to the measured pressure. It also features quick response, remote setup and monitoring via BRAIN or HART communications and self-diagnostics.
The EJA438E is a gauge pressure transmitter with a remote diaphragm seal in the series.
EJA438E Standard features include:
- ± 0.2% Accuracy
- 200 ms Response Time
- Exida and TUV SIL2 / SIL3 Certified
- Local Parameter Setting (LPS)
- 10-segment Signal Characterizer
- Active Capillary Fill Fluid Density Compensation
Yokogawa’s DPharp digital sensor offers twice the performance and stability of the competitor’s analog sensors. The DPharp uses the latest in IC Chip-style design and manufacturing technology. Analog sensors are based on older design technology. Although analog sensors are good, the modern DPharp sensor outperforms them. A Yokogawa transmitter with DPharp digital sensor will give you the consistent, reliable, accurate measurement you need.
All remote seal systems on the market use fill fluid to ‘transmit’ the process pressure from the remote diaphragm seal to the pressure sensor in the transmitter. The physical properties of the fill fluid change as process temperature and ambient temperature change causing the transmitter to measure inaccurately. This effect gets worse as the capillaries get longer. The key is to filter out this ‘noise’ to get an accurate, consistent, reliable measurement. Yokogawa has a superior design, manufacturing process, and features to reduce this ‘noise’.
Signal characterization is a versatile function available on all Yokogawa pressure transmitters. The function is used to compensate the analog 4 to 20 mA output signal for non-linear applications. Such applications include tank strapping or flow measurements; but, it can be used in any application where the relationship between the pressure input and the desired output signal are known. This feature can use up to 10-points.
Ruggedly constructed differential pressure transmitter can help your plant reduce failures. Yokogawa’s DP transmitters have construction features that are designed to allow it to outlive your plant. Four-bolt pressure retaining design, Active DPharp sensor, and dual seal certified to ANSI/ISA 12.27.01 – all design features to extend the life of the transmitter.
All Yokogawa pressure transmitters are designed and certified to IEC61508:2010 Parts 1 through 7 and IEC61511:2004 Parts 1 through 3. They are certified for single transmitter use in SIL 2 safety applications and dual transmitter use in SIL 3 safety applications with no special option required. With Yokogawa EJA-E transmitters, no longer will you have to maintain two seperate inventories – one for production applications and one for safety applications.
Extended Calibration Intervals
Yokogawa EJA-E series pressure transmitters have a long-term stability under all operational conditions. As you gain experience with these transmitters, you will be able to extend the time between calibration checks.
Multiple Communication Options
Yokogawa offers several platforms to communicate to your transmitter.
FieldMate is a PC based communication platform that can communicate with your transmitter and manage your entire instrument inventory.
FieldMate HHC is a traditional hand-held platform that allows you to take that information into the field.
Forgot your HHC? No problem. The LPS feature on the transmitter allows you to update 9 parameters without the use of an HHC.
