In step 1, the transmitter planning process, the video describes the three main components in a Coriolis meter—the transmitter, the sensor and the core processor for additional memory and core processing functions.

It’s important to review the tag on the transmitter housing to verify that the transmitter is suitable for the environment in which it will be installed. For example, if it will be installed in a Class I, Division 1 hazardous environment, the tag should indicate this suitability.

During the planning process, it’s important to make sure you have received all the cabling parts that come as accessories with the transmitter. The cable and cable glands should be appropriate for the electrical classification of the installation site.

Refer to the installation guide for the maximum cable lengths for your installation:
