Emerson Process Management

Emerson Process Management continues to expand wireless instrumentation benefits by adding the Rosemount Analytical Model 6081-P wireless pH transmitter to its Smart Wireless plant solutions.  Closely following approval of the WirelessHART standard, the new field device is the industry’s first wireless pH/ORP transmitter. Emerson’s Smart Wireless solutions extend PlantWeb architecture. 

The new wireless Model 6081-P measures both pH and ORP and is compatible with most Rosemount Analytical pH and ORP sensors. The wireless transmitter installs easily and joins the wireless network quickly, enabling analytical measurements that were previously impossible due to physical or economic constraints, or in movable applications.  Installation savings are as much as 90 percent as compared with traditional wired service. 

The new wireless 6081-P transmitter features two-line, 16-character display with simple and intuitive menu screens and plain language prompts in six local languages that guide the user through programming and calibration procedures. The transmitter’s open, standard WirelessHART digital communications provide access to process variables and essential diagnostic and troubleshooting information. The diagnostics enable continuous monitoring for problems such as calibration error, high and low temperature warnings, glass failure, reference failure, ROM failure, sensor failure, CPU failure, glass and reference warnings.

The 6081-P communicates with other wireless components in field networks within Emerson’s Smart Wireless plant infrastructure. Field networks use self-organizing wireless mesh radio frequency communications technology to deliver 99 percent reliable communications supported by proven robust security. SmartPower technology delivers 3 to 5 year battery life for the pH transmitter and 5 to 15 year life for other Smart Wireless transmitters dependent on application.

The Model 6081-P is now available for order. It can be purchased alone or as part of the Wireless SmartPack Starter Kit that comes pre-configured out of the box to immediately form a secure, robust self-organizing mesh network. The SmartPack kit includes a Model 1420 Wireless Gateway, a 25-tag license for AMS Device Manager software, 5 to 100 wireless devices, Emerson-supplied SmartStart installation services and five wireless instruments.
