Wireless functionality added to gauging systems

Technology
Rosemount TankRadar Rex and Pro tank gauging systems now have Emerson Smart Wireless functionality included.  This allows installation of a new radar-based Rex and Pro without any new long distance signal wiring to significantly reduce material and labor costs as well as engineering and project execution time.osemount TankRadar Rex and Pro tank gauging systems now have Emerson Smart Wireless functionality included.  This allows installation of a new radar-based Rex and Pro without any new long distance signal wiring to significantly reduce material and labor costs as well as engineering and project execution time.

The system is already operating successfully on three sites where all tanks had power cabling available but no proper signal wiring.
Cost savings can prove substantial as there is no need to do any new cabling work, according to the manufacturer.
By connecting Smart Wireless THUM adapter to the radar gauge on the tank top, complete tank inventory data is sent to the control room via wireless HART communication.
Besides level data, all relevant multi-point temperature transmitter, pressure sensor, and water bottom level data are also transmitted.
