Paul Boughton

Rohrback Cosasco Systems has introduced the new ISA100 Microcor Wireless Transmitter (MWT-3905). The MWT will be the first corrosion monitoring instrument to integrate with a Yokogawa or any other ISA100 wireless systems. Multiple MWTs can be combined with wireless extenders to form a network of up to 500 devices. ISA100 gives users the flexibility of choosing either star or mesh network topologies. RCS ISA100 devices have an effective wireless range of 1500ft (450m), providing a large and reliable network coverage area.

The MWT uses high resolution metal loss measurement providing 18 bit resolution, and is the industry's most widely used technology capable of operating in any process environment. The wireless corrosion monitoring transmitters can be deployed in hazardous area locations (Class 1, Zone 1) with temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C. The power module has a typical life of three years and is hazardous location certified to allow change out in the hazardous area.
