What is the max. cable length for the SITRANS FX300?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

The max. cable length for the SITRANS FX300 is 15m.

The menu 3.6.1 for setting the cable length allows a max. value of 30m. This is an error in the firmware of the transmitter. The max. cable length for the remote version is specified with 15m. A sensor cable with 30m length is not available. Selecting cable length "30m" can compromise the functionality of meter and may result in errors in flow measurement.
