Rosemount's 3051S Advanced Diagnostics Pressure Transmitter has been awarded exida's 2014 Safety Award in the sensor category. "The Exchange theme of Inspiring Innovation certainly applies to this product," said Bill Goble, principal partner, exida, in presenting the award to Scott Nelson, vice president and general manager, worldwide pressure products, Rosemount Measurement, Emerson Process Management. "I don't think that industry fully understands its ability to support both safety and reliability," Goble continued. "Its advanced diagnostics are unique in industry."

Historically, when people think of instrument diagnostics, they think of the health of the instrument, added Nelson. "But with the 3051S Advanced Diagnostics, we've extended them to include the integrity of the process connections; the electrical connections, including loop wiring and power supply; and to the process itself," Nelson said. "Users say it's become a stethoscope for overall process health, truly giving them the insight they need to ensure that the process delivers the quality and efficiency required."
