Emerson First with WirelessHART
Emerson Process Management is the first process automation supplier to begin taking orders for WirelessHART-enabled products based on the recently approved open standard for in-plant wireless communications. These measurement and communications products are available as a core part of Emerson’s Smart Wireless plant automation solutions portfolio.
The WirelessHART standard specifies use of open wireless communications for process measurement and control applications. Emerson estimates the demand for wireless technology will exceed $1 billion by 2012.
“We are pleased to be the first and invite all suppliers and end users to join us as we enter into this new era of process automation,” says John Berra, president of Emerson Process Management. “Wireless simply means a better way to put more eyes and ears in the plant to enable the plant to run better, safer and greener. ”
Emerson’s Smart Wireless range of pressure, flow, level, temperature and vibration transmitters and gateways are available with WirelessHART standard communications, as is AMS Suite predictive maintenance software and 375 field communicators. The stream of future new products from Emerson will also use the standard, including the pH transmitter, discrete transmitter, valve position transmitter, the Smart Wireless THUM Communicator to unleash stranded diagnostics in legacy devices, and the DeltaV native wireless interface.
“With official release of the HART 7 Specifications in September 2007, the WirelessHART standard became publicly available for manufacturers to begin implementing this new capability into their products and process solutions,” commented HART Communications Foundation executive director Ron Helson. “I am delighted to see Emerson moving quickly to release WirelessHART-enabled products to the industry. The WirelessHART technology addresses the critical needs of the process industry for simple, reliable and secure wireless communication in the real world industrial plant environment.”
