Emerson Process Management”s Rosemount Analytical Model 6081-P wireless pH transmitter is being touted as industry’s first wireless pH/ORP transmitter. Part of Emerson’s Smart Wireless line of products, the pH sensor is designed to extend the company”s PlantWeb architecture for digital process automation. The transmitter measures both pH and ORP and is compatible with most Rosemount Analytical pH and ORP sensors. The wireless transmitter installs easily and joins the wireless network quickly, enabling analytical measurements that were previously impossible due to physical or economic constraints, or in movable applications. Installation savings are as much as 90 percent as compared with traditional wired service. Features two-line, 16-character display with intuitive menu screens and plain language prompts in six local languages that guide the user through programming and calibration procedures. The transmitter’s open, standard WirelessHART digital communications provide access to process variables and essential diagnostic and troubleshooting information. The diagnostics enable continuous monitoring for problems such as calibration error, high and low temperature warnings, glass failure, reference failure, ROM failure, sensor failure, CPU failure, glass and reference warnings. The device is capable of communicating with other wireless components in field networks within Emerson’s Smart Wireless plant infrastructure. Field networks use self-organizing wireless mesh radio frequency communications technology. Emerson”s SmartPower technology delivers three- to five-year battery life for the pH transmitter and five- to 15-year life for other Smart Wireless transmitters dependent on application.
