Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that it has received the Award for New Products and the International Standardization Award: Achievement Prize from the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE)*1. The awards were presented on October 27. Encouraged by this, Yokogawa will continue working to develop and bring new products to market.
Details about these awards follow.
Award for New products
The Award for New Products is given to SICE member organizations who have released a new product in the previous two calendar years that represents a significant advance in any one of the science & technology fields or industries in which SICE is involved.
- Highly reliable gas flow rate calculation through integration between the DPharp EJX multivariable transmitter and the ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented system
Yokogawa developed functions that comply with the AGA8*2 standard for calculating the compressibility of natural gas, and expanded its natural gas flow rate measurement solutions by introducing them in its transmitters and controllers in 2006 and 2008, respectively. In 2013, Yokogawa successfully implemented a solution that made combined use of Modbus*3 communication type DPharp EJX multivariable transmitters and a ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system that was capable of performing gas flow rate calculations. This ensured not only highly precise and reliable gas flow rate measurement, control, and data management, but also proved to be a cost-effective plant safety solution that conforms to functional safety standards. For this contribution to the natural gas industry, SICE presented this award to Yokogawa.
International Standardization Award: Achievement Prize
The International Standardization Award: Achievement Prize is given to individuals and organizations who have significantly contributed to a field in which SICE is involved through the establishment of international standards.
