Emerson Automation Solutions has launched the Rosemount™ 2140, the world’s first wired HART vibrating fork level detector. Offering enhanced ease-of-use, smart diagnostics, and a remote proof-testing capability, the device provides reliable level detection while helping increase safety and efficiency of both plant and workers.

The Rosemount 2140 performs in applications with high temperatures and harsh conditions unsuitable for other level monitoring devices. It is easy to install and maintain as there are no moving parts. The device is virtually unaffected by flow, bubbles, turbulence, foam, vibration, sediments content, coating, liquid properties and product variations. It can be used to monitor not only liquids but also liquid-to-sand interface, which enables the build-up of sand or sludge deposits in a tank to be detected.

Compatible with the HART 5 and HART 7 hosts, the Rosemount 2140 enables operators to continuously monitor electronic and mechanical health. Frequency profiling functionality immediately detects any build-up, fork blockage, or excessive corrosion, indicating maintenance may be required and allowing this to be scheduled during periods of downtime. In addition, Power Advisory functionality monitors voltage and current drawn over the device’s lifetime with a Process Alert for potential issues that could become a problem, such as corrosion.
