SENCOM™ SMART Digital Sensors

Empowering Growth with Credible Data

SENCOM LOOPYokogawa SENCOM™ SMART is digital communication designed to optimize your process and create sustainable value throughout the entire product lifecycle, from engineering and purchasing to modification and optimization.

SENCOM™ technology allows sensors to transmit and receive data when connected to a 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. This data can be exchanged between the sensor and either a process transmitter or a laboratory PC using a data management software, like the SPS24.

Using historical measurement, calibration and diagnostic data from the sensor, the SPS24 data management system provides technicians with the tools to predict maintenance and calibration frequency, estimate sensor life and project life expectancy. Calibration data can be downloaded or uploaded to and from the digital smart sensor to the FLEXA™ analyzer allowing for true plug and go field installation.

Data stored in the sensor includes:

  • Calibration Values (Asymmetry, Slope, Temperature Offset)
  • Sensor Status Signals (e.g. Glass Impedance Detection)
  • Reference Junction Resistance
  • Sensor details (Model, Serial Number, and Production Manufacturing Date)
  • 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. 

Process Guard

SENCOMfeatures real-time diagnostics for early detection of sensor failure and "Event Management" for pro-active maintenance.

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. Simple and user-friendly operating HMI and wizard for easy quick start setup and configuration.

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 

Changing technologies don't have to result in negative consequences putting throughput, quality, and/or compliance at risk. The FLXA202 connects to traditional analog or digital SMART sensors, allowing an easy upgrade to digital SMART sensors in the future.

Data Mobility

Communication capabilities include 4-20mA from FLXA202/21 or direct connection with Modbus RS485 out of the SENCOM™ pH and ORP sensor.
