Industrial process transmitter
31 July 2008
Emerson Process Management continues to expand its smart wireless instrumentation offering with the addition of a wireless pH transmitter. Closely following approval of the WirelessHart standard, the new field device is the industry's first wireless pH/ORP transmitter.
The new wireless Model 6081-P measures both pH and ORP and is compatible with most Rosemount Analytical pH and ORP sensors. The wireless transmitter installs easily and joins the wireless network quickly, enabling analytical measurements that were previously impossible due to physical or economic
constraints, or in movable applications. Installation savings are as much as 90 percent as compared with traditional wired service.
The new transmitter features two-line, 16-character display with simple and intuitive menu screens and plain language prompts in six local languages that guide the user through programming and calibration procedures. Its open, standard digital communications provide access to process variables and essential
diagnostic and troubleshooting information. The diagnostics enable continuous monitoring for problems such as calibration error, high and low temperature warnings, glass failure, reference failure, Rom failure, sensor failure, CPU failure, glass and reference warnings.
The 6081-P communicates with other wireless components in field networks, which use self-organising wireless mesh radio frequency communications technology to deliver 99 percent reliable communications
supported by proven robust security. Battery life is claimed to be 3 to 5 years for the pH transmitter and a 5 to 15 year life for other Smart Wireless transmitters dependent on application.
