Siemens SITRANS FC430 Coriolis Flowmeter Now NTEP-Approved for Custody Transfer
Posted by danstips in Flow, Flowmeters, Siemens on May 2, 2016
Custody transfer flow meters are used to determine how much of a commodity changes hands in exchange for some monetary, financial or other recognized trade consideration.
All custody transfer applications involve at least one buyer and one seller. During custody transfer, accuracy is of great importance to both the company delivering the material and the recipient.
In order to ensure reliable and accurate measurement, devices are certified for custody transfer by a nationally recognized body. For Coriolis flow sensors, custody transfer approvals are mandated by the US National Conference on Weights and Measures office.

Siemens’ LUT 400 saves data values and alarm events in text-formatted log files. This note covers how to get the files out of the LUT400 to view them in spreadsheet format using Siemens Log Importer macro for Excel.
The text files are extracted from the LUT400 over a USB cable (mini B type connector). When the USB cable is connected to your PC, the LUT400 appears as a removable drive (circled in red, below)

The DTM file can be downloaded from this link: http://tinyurl.com/cqk2cky
Once it had been installed, I opened Pactware and updated the device catalog, as seen in the picture below:
But when I attempted to establish a HART connection to the LUT400, I got an error message:
