Emerson introduces wireless totalizing transmitter to monitor turbine meters in remote applications

Thursday, Apr 16, 2015

Emerson Process Management introduces the Rosemount 705 Wireless Totalizing Transmitter for installation on new or existing turbine meters or pulse devices to deliver average flow and totalized flow volume over time. The totalizing transmitter also delivers predictive diagnostics data to indicate instrument health and support timely maintenance to intervene on issues before they impact operations.

“Unmeasured flow and volume in turbine meter or pulse applications can impact productivity and optimization of other critical areas of production,” said Bob Karschnia, vice president of wireless at Emerson Process Management. “Locating traditional analog flow measurement has often been demanding or even impossible to implement when and where you want it. The Rosemount 705 Wireless Totalizing Transmitter answers these challenges by connecting directly to any new or existing meter or pulse device, and sending data wirelessly to eliminate cabling costs, speed installation, and enable complete process data for better decision making.”

The Rosemount 705 transmitter provides average flow rate and totalization in an operator-configurable k-factor. One second updates ensure timely information, and remote mounting of the device allows for flexible installation. The transmitter can be installed in a location convenient for the wireless signal up to 1 kilometer away.

The transmitter calculates the total from a pulse measured from 0 to 10 khz and provides an optional continuous read out display. The transmitter can be configured to reset at the unit or remotely via MODBUS, EtherNet/IP or OPC from the host system.
