Process Control - Process sensors: The Rosemount 3308 is a wireless guided wave radar transmitter for continuous level monitoring in difficult to reach locations. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.Emerson Process Management announces the industry's first integrated wireless guided wave radar (GWR) transmitter for continuous level and interface monitoring. The Rosemount 3308 wireless GWR transmitter has been introduced to meet the need for accurate level monitoring in remote or difficult to reach locations where installing new cabling would be costly or impractical.

GWR transmitters are widely used for a broad range of measurement and control applications. These include process level measurement in vessels and storage tanks in refineries, oil fields, offshore platforms, chemical and industrial plants. Accurate and reliable level instrumentation helps avoid the risk of oil spills that impact the environment and require expensive labour and equipment to clean up.

Emerson's Smart Wireless technology significantly reduces installation and configuration time. Since there is no need for cabling, trenching, conduit runs and cable trays, costs are typically reduced by 30% or more compared with a wired solution. Once a wireless network has been established, any WirelessHART enabled device can join the network and take advantage of the benefits of an existing Smart Wireless infrastructure.

The Rosemount 3308 wireless GWR transmitter features enhanced configuration and diagnostics. It provides an easy and cost effective way to add visibility across a wide range of industries and applications, ensuring plant and operator safety and improving process efficiency. The transfer of proven solutions from the wired Rosemount 3300 and 5300 Series GWRs has made long battery life possible without compromising measurement reliability. Device dashboards help to reduce errors by providing a step-by-step configuration process.

The Rosemount 3308 is a top mounted device for direct level and interface measurement of liquids. It is virtually unaffected by changing process conditions such as density, conductivity, temperature and pressure, and because it does not have moving parts, no calibration is required and maintenance is minimized.
