Determining the correct spare part set
This method is used merely to determine whether the spare part set is suitable for the measuring device. Other conclusions drawn from the table are not applicable.
1. Read the order code from the nameplate on the measuring device and enter it in the fields below. The relevant features are marked with a star.
2. Select the order code of the spare part set in the table below and compare it, with the ordered spare part.
Order code, set original spare part
XPF0003 - Probe FMP50 without process connection
XPF0005 - Probe FMP51 without process connection
Use only the identical original Endress+Hauser spare part sets.
Additionally check the order code of the probe rod/rope with the aid of the serial number in the device viewer (www. endress.com/deviceviewer).
We recommend that the Installation Instructions be kept with the packaging label at all times.

• In the case of Ex-certified measuring devices: Only open in a de-energized
state (once a delay of 10 minutes has elapsed after switching off the power
supply) or in environments which do not have a potentially explosive
• Service connector:
– do not connect in potentially explosive atmospheres.
– only connect to Endress+Hauser service devices.

• If threads are damaged or defective, the measuring device must be repaired.
• If spacing is reduced or the dielectric strength of the measuring device cannot
be guaranteed during repair work, perform a test on completion of the work
(e.g. high-voltage test in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions).
• Risk of damaging electronic components! Ensure you have a working
environment protected from electrostatic discharge.
• The measuring device is energized. Danger: Risk of electric shock! Only open
the measuring device in a de-energized state.
• Observe the instructions for transporting and returning the device outlined in
