Emerson Process Management
Emerson Process Management has announced the availability of Advanced Diagnostics on its Rosemount 3051S Series of Instrumentation for pressure, flow and level solutions using the HART communications protocol. The ASP Diagnostics Suite, embedded in Emersons scalable, high-performing and reliable-pressure transmitter, provides users with new tools for troubleshooting, detecting, and preventing abnormal situations.
Patented statistical process monitoring technology, integral to the transmitter, provides users with an early warning of abnormal process or equipment conditions such as plugged impulse lines, changes in fluid composition, or other events signaled by a change in the noise characteristics of the pressure signal. Early notification of these abnormal conditions will allow operators to respond immediately, reducing maintenance costs and increasing plant productivity.
The ASP Diagnostics Suite also includes time-stamped variable logging and advanced process alert capabilities to detect and record transient events or conditions outside specified limits of the transmitter, key information when troubleshooting process or installation issues. All diagnostic information can be viewed on the new Enhanced EDDL-based graphical user interface, which provides an intuitive view into the process so that operators and maintenance personnel can quickly detect and respond to abnormal situations.
