Upgraded Transmitter Results in Greater Process Measurement

November 3, 2010
New features expand diagnostic coverage beyond transmitter electronics to identify and prevent abnormal process and installation issues. The new power advisory diagnostic helps ensure the integrity of the electrical loop by detecting unwanted changing electrical conditions, such as water in the terminal housing, ground loop issues, corrosion of terminals, or an unstable power supply. The unit also includes statistical process monitoring technology, to measure and analyze previously unseen process noise, providing intelligent process insight. This has led to a significant expansion in the range of process diagnostic applications such as detection of furnace flame instability, incipient distillation column flooding, and valve or pump cavitation.
