SENCOM™ SMART Digital Sensors

Measurement, Control, and Information in one Digital SMART Sensor System

Yokogawa’s SENCOM SMART Sensor Platform is an innovative analyzer platform that optimizes maintenance, reduces configuration time, and simplifies in-field maintenance and calibration.

SENCOM SMART digital sensor platforms combine:

  • SENCOM™ technology, which allows sensors to transmit and receive data when connected to a transmitter/analyzer or any PC
  • Analyzer, which captures and stores calibration data
  • SMART digital sensors to maintain specific measurement and calibration data on an integrated chip along that is an integral part of the sensor
  • Data management software to optimize the performance of pH/ORP sensors for enhanced reliability and process safety

 

SENCOM SMART by the Numbers

 

 

Delivering enhanced value throughout the product lifecycle

 

Simplified Selection"I want to connect a different sensor type, is that possible?"

Simplified Selection 

One analyzer that can measure pH/ORP, Conductivity and dissolved oxygen allows for a reduction in CAPEX & OPEX.

 

Expert Guide"How do I set up my new instrument, and how long is it going to take?"

Expert Guide

As experienced operators retire, many facilities worry about the possibility of losing operations expertise and being unable to successfully transfer skills to new operations staff. An easy to use wizard offers clear guidance for the setup and configuration. The intuitive menu structure along with easy to understand alarm settings and clear information on troubleshooting, contribute to the credibility and reliability of your online process control measurements.

 

Process Guard"How do I know when to do maintenance or calibration?"

Process Guard

SENCOMfeatures real-time diagnostics and sensor wellness for early detection of sensor failure and replacement pro-active maintenance.

 

Maintenance Manager"Is my instrument still working efficiently and providing accurate measurements?"

Maintenance Manager

There is no need to worry about unplanned outages and lost production time with the maintenance manager function. The SENCOM platform utilizes the integrated "hot swap" and "plug and play" function to significantly decrease downtime, while the sensor wellness function predicts the next maintenance and sensor replacement.

 

Advanced Flexibility"Do I need to buy a new instrument to expand its functionality?"

Advanced Flexibility

Changing technologies don't have to result in negative consequences putting throughput, quality, and/or compliance at risk. With the SENCOM platform upgrading to the next generation of SMART product is easy, and an upgrade transfer can be done at any time with little impact on operations. The SENCOM Platform connects to traditional analog or digital SMART sensors, allowing an easy upgrade to digital SMART sensors in the future. SENCOMaccelerates time-to-value of the new technology and provides the connection flexibility, simplicity, and efficiency to seamlessly move data and workloads on an ongoing basis.

 

  • SENCOM technology allows pH and ORP sensors to transmit and receive data when connected to FLXA202 or FLXA21 transmitter or to any PC with the SPS24 software installed. Digital or Smart sensors maintain specific measurement and calibration data on an integrated chip along that is an integral part of the sensor. 

  • Yokogawa's SENSTATION combines SENCOM SMART sensors with the SMART data logger and SMARTDAC+ modular data acquisition system to provide a scalable, integrated liquid measurement solution. 

FAQ

Overview:

Yes, the SENCOM Module in these sensors allows a Modbus Master to
connect using Modbus RTU protocol and access the following data:

  • pH
  • Temperature compensated pH
  • ORP
  • pH compensated ORP
  • rH
  • Temperature
  • Junction resistance value
  • Sensor details (Model, Serial Number, production date)
  • Sensor calibration data (zero, slope, temperature offset)
  • Sensor status signals (e.g. Glass impedance detection)

As shown in the diagram above, our pH is calculated by subtracting value B from value A. To do this the B value is stored inside the sensor and can be displayed independently at any time. Since ORP is simply the value of B, we can easily display both pH (A-B) and ORP (B) without any issues.

Overview:

Yes, the input module can be changed in the Converter.
