Emerson Plantweb Insight application for wireless pressure gauges

Monday, 11 June, 2018 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions



Emerson has announced a Plantweb Insight application for wireless pressure gauges that displays data in an easy-to-understand dashboard for maintenance leads and instrumentation and electrical (I&E) personnel. An entire suite of Plantweb Insight applications is available to collectively help users quickly make sense of plant data and drive overall enterprise profitability.

This IIoT application delivers field data from a fleet of wireless pressure gauges as frequently as once per minute. By keeping operators updated on changing conditions remotely, the app allows personnel to make fewer manual rounds and minimise their exposure to hazardous areas.

The gauge itself, a WirelessHART pressure gauge, utilises Rosemount pressure sensor technology to deliver reliable pressure readings. It provides up to 150x overpressure protection compared to traditional gauges using bourdon tube technology, and two layers of process isolation for a safer field environment. The gauge, which has a 10-year life, also reduces maintenance costs by eliminating common weak points found in mechanical gauges.

The application is the latest addition to Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem, a scalable portfolio of technologies, software and services that take advantage of IIoT innovations to extend the benefits of automation beyond process control to the entire enterprise, improving operations, strengthening decision-making and institutionalising best practices.

Easily integrated with a variety of WirelessHART gauges and remote field sensors, Plantweb Insight applications combine continuous, real-time data with predictive analytics to give maintenance and operations personnel actionable, up-to-date process information in any location, improving reliability, safety, production and energy management.
