Emerson's New Rosemount Analytical Liquid Analysis Platform Establishes Standard for Ease of Use

Single or dual input instrument cost-effective for OEM or end user

IRVINE, CALIF. (December 7, 2006) - A new Rosemount Analytical liquid analysis platform designed to significantly simplify operation and maintenance beyond that of previous generations of instruments has been announced by Emerson Process Management. The new Model 1056 Single/Dual Input Analyzer is described as a "cost-effective, workhorse instrument" appropriate for the widest range of both OEM and end-user liquid analysis applications. The Model 1056 allows the user to choose from any combination of measurements: pH/ORP/ISE, Resistivity/conductivity, Percent Concentration, Chlorine (Free, Total, Monochloramine, pH independent Free Chlorine), Oxygen, Ozone and Temperature.

To simplify operation in the field, the Model 1056 features the largest high-contrast LCD display available on a line-operated instrument. It offers large, easy-to-read process measurements making it possible for the field engineer to see the information clearly from a distance, as the display is back-lit. Four process variables, or diagnostic parameters, are displayed simultaneously from every screen giving operators maximum information at a glance. The placement of variables on the screen is easily configured based on the user's requirements. When changing screens, the simple, intuitive, plain-English menus and help-screens make operation easy without need for manuals or instructions. No more than three button pushes are required for any operation.

Embedded predictive diagnostics provide warnings and faults when the sensors or instrument are not performing to specification. A push of the diagnostics button reveals PlantWeb alert troubleshooting and maintenance messages.

The instrument is equally easy to set up and troubleshoot. Exclusive quick-start screens appear the first time the Model 1056 is powered up. The analyzer auto-recognizes each measurement board installed within the device and the display prompts the user to configure each sensor in a few quick steps for immediate deployment. The instrument is designed with modular cards and easily removable connectors making reconfiguration in the field simple. Built-in wire guides keep the interior organized and wiring plans are intuitive. When measurement boards are changed in the Model 1056, the analyzer automatically recognizes the configuration change. Seemingly simple features like the hinged door and captive screws make installation much easier.

"The new Model 1056 has been designed based upon the input of Emerson customers," according to John Wright, vice president of marketing, Rosemount Analytical Liquid Division of Emerson Process Management. "We listened and responded to their requirements. The sophistication of its performance combined with the simplicity of its operation is getting rave reviews from customers who are evaluating the product."

The Emerson Model 1056 Dual/single Input Analyzer is available for shipment in January 2007.
