Emerson surpasses 500 million hours of wireless operation


Based on the international IEC 62591 WirelessHART standard, Emerson's solutions deliver wireless communications for highly complex operations, including process automation, emissions controls, maintenance, and worker safety – and in many cases, extreme environments.

"We've focused on wireless innovation to enable industrial efficiency in the toughest environments, from monitoring oil pipelines on the North Slope of Alaska, where wind chill temperatures are minus 56 degrees Celsius, or in the desert, where temperatures rise to over 40 degrees Celsius, with sandstorms and even the gnawing jaws of camels damaging wired connections," said Steve Sonnenberg, president of Emerson Process Management.

Wide range

Future Smart Wireless products from the company will extend customers' capabilities from monitoring to control functions, enabling customers to not only gather critical information but also to act on it remotely.

Emerson offers a wide range of wireless field instrumentation and plant operations equipment, including Fisher position monitors, Rosemount transmitters, and Rosemount Analytical and Machinery Health Management devices.

Other components include AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, DeltaV digital automation systems, and wireless SmartStart Services. Smart Wireless is an extension of the company's PlantWeb digital plant architecture.

Extending wireless

Emerson will extend wireless to new applications that historically have relied only on manual observation and periodic reporting, giving industrial customers real-time, constant visibility to new and better data for improved control systems, safety systems, asset management, machinery health, and overall plant performance.
