The first compact two-wire detector: Gammapilot FMG50

Demands for safe processes

In applications where common measuring principles come to their limits radiometry is used. The following criteria is here even more crucial than in other applications:

  • Comprehensive safety concepts for people and environment
  • Reduce the effort for commissioning and maintenance to a minimum
  • Mobile access to devices in hard to reach measuring points
  • Usage in SIL applications without long qualification processes

Safe, efficient and compact: Gammapilot FMG50 fits into every application

As first compact 4-20mA two-wire detector Gammapilot FMG50 fits into every application and provides the following benefits:

  • The effort for commissioning and maintenance is significantly reduced.
  • Safety by design: The device is already developed according to IEC 61508 for SIL2 and SIL 3 applications. This reduces the time for proven in use.
  • Multifunctional: Gammapilot measures point level, level, density, interfaces and concentration.
  • Via Bluetooth® Technology you commission the device mobile from outside of the beam angle.
  • A Wizard on the SmartBlue app guides you through the commissioning.
  • Pre-configured parameters guarantee a quick start-up.
  • The modulator eliminates the radiation of other sources in order to always provide a reliable measurement.
  • You significantly save costs as you do not need additional water cooling up to 80°C ambient temperature.
  • Long measuring ranges are guaranteed with a detector length of 3 m.

At the pulse of your measurement with Heartbeat Technology

Permanent self-diagnostics:  Gammapilot FMG50 monitors itself constantly via 54 permanently running diagnostic points and with this meets the NAMUR standard NE107.

Verification with documentation: You verify the correct functionality by pushing a button. The automatically generated verification report fulfills legal requirements for documentation.

Monitoring data for predictive maintenance: With the device and process data you gain the basis to predict the remaining life time of the source and the photo multiplier and to derive the next maintenance date.

As pioneer in radiometry Endress+Hauser researches since 50 years on optimizing the measuring principle which solves every extreme measuring task. The new Gammapilot outperforms in its compactness and safety previous devices and solves all measuring tasks with one device.
