Emerson has announced a new 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 collectively helps users quickly make sense of plant data and drive overall enterprise profitability.
This Industrial Internet of Things (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, the industry’s first WirelessHART pressure gauge, utilises industry-proven 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.
