Emerson has introduced a HART 7 position transmitter option for its TopWorx D-Series switchbox. The addition of the HART 7 Communications Protocol enables advanced diagnostic and monitoring capabilities for valve integrators and automators. It helps improve operational efficiency and maintenance planning for plants in process industries such as oil and gas, chemical, power, and refining.
“The TopWorx D-Series switchbox offers customers all the benefits of the HART 7 protocol, such as complete process valve position monitoring and alarm setting,” said Leandru Schiau, senior product manager at Emerson Automation Solutions for TopWorx switchbox.
The HART 7 position transmitter’s easy-to-use LCD display and navigation buttons permit local 5-point calibration for more accurate setup on linear applications. Advanced diagnostic capabilities include measurements such as percent valve is open/closed, open and close dwell time, valve transition time – from open to close, and last open/close stroke time.
