EMERSON has introduced the Rosemount 8712EM wall mount magnetic flowmeter transmitter with additional protocols which it claims offer powerful diagnostic capabilities and usability features to help users in the water and wastewater, metals and mining, and other industries gain quick and easy insight into their processes.
According to the company, the meter’s local operator interface was designed using “human-centred” design concepts, making it easier and faster for technicians to navigate in the field.
Scott Dudek, product manager for Rosemount magnetic flow meters said, “The Rosemount 8712EM melds usability pioneered by Emerson’s Human Centered Design Group with the quality, capabilities, and reliability that customers have come to trust from Emerson”.
The Rosemount 8712EM’s diagnostic suite includes high process noise detection and ground fault detection. The electrode coating diagnostic offers two set points to alert when coating is present and when it is affecting flow measurement, enabling preventative maintenance. Smart Meter Verification continuously monitors the health and performance of the meter for ultimate measurement confidence.
Universal transmitter capability allows the 8712EM to operate with any existing magnetic flow meter sensor and allows backwards compatibility with all Rosemount magnetic sensors. This feature not only makes the transmitter easier to integrate with older units, but it also enables the use of the 8712EM’s advanced diagnostic features.
The Rosemount 8712EM supports HART 7 for 32-character-long tag capability for reduced start up time, as well as options for intrinsically safe HART outputs and Modbus RS-485.
