Emerson Process Management SMART Functionality in Analyzers and Sensors
Emerson Process Management PERpH-X pH sensors, Model 6081 wireless analyzer, Model 1056 dual-input analyzer, and Model 1057 multi-parameter analyzer feature SMART functionality. These are the first in a new generation of Rosemount Analytical sensors and analyzers that will be shipped with SMART capability embedded calibration that is uploaded to the analyzer from the sensor at start-up, eliminating the need for field calibration.
One of the biggest problems industrial plants experience with their liquid analytical sensors is the need for field calibration. It requires many personnel hours, often in harsh and inconvenient environments with messy solutions. The new SMART family of sensors and analyzers eliminates the need for field calibration since the as-tested calibration data is embedded in the sensors memory, and the analyzer reads it automatically, providing immediate live process measurements. It's a huge time and money saver.
SMART capability is already being embedded in the company's Model 6081 wireless analyzer, Model 1056 dual-input analyzer, and Model 1057 multi-parameter analyzer. The new SMART-capable analyzers are backward compatible with all current Rosemount pH and ORP sensors and will continue to operate with all other sensors as well as those of competitors in a standard operating format. The first sensors to be delivered with built-in SMART technology will be the family of high-performance PERpH-X pH sensors. In addition to the built-in calibration, the new sensors also store calibration data making it possible to easily monitor and schedule maintenance on these sensors from a central control room.
