Courtesy: Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management's Rosemount 5300 Guided Wave Radar (GWR) level transmitters are certified to IEC 61508 for safety instrumented functions up to SIL 3. The certification means that the Rosemount 5300 GWR is suitable for continuous level measurement in safety instrumented functions up to SIL 3, as defined in IEC 61511 for applications in the process industry. They are designed for companies in the oil and gas industry as well as, refining, petrochemical, chemical and power industries.

The Rosemount 5300 GWR provides continuous level measurement, including the actual product surface location − confirming that the level sensor is functioning correctly. The Rosemount 5300 Series is a two-wire GWR for challenging level and interface measurements on liquids, slurries and solids. The Direct Switch Technology (DST) function increases measurement reliability and capability. In addition to improving the signal-to-noise ratio, DST enhances the ability to handle disturbing factors, longer measuring ranges, and lower dielectrics, even with a single probe. Maintenance-free operation improves uptime, and advanced configuration and extensive diagnostic information is available through the RadarMaster and EDDL-based user interface.
