Rosemount 3051S Series instrumentation from Emerson Process Management now incorporates ASP Diagnostics Suite to provide early warning of abnormal process or equipment conditions.

Chanhassen, MN —Advanced diagnostics are now available on Emerson Process Management's Rosemount 3051S Series instrumentation. ASP Diagnostics Suite, embedded in the pressure transmitter, provides tools for troubleshooting, detecting, and preventing abnormal situations. The instrumentation for pressure, flow, and level applications uses the HART communications protocol.

Statistical processing monitoring technology is integral to the transmitter, providing early warning of abnormal process or equipment conditions, such as plugged impulse lines, changes in fluid composition, or other events signaled by a change in noise characteristics of the pressure signal. Early notification is intended to help operators respond more effectively to unusual conditions.

ASP Diagnostics Suite includes time-stamped variable logging and advanced process alert capabilities to detect and record transient events or conditions outside the specified limits of the transmitter, considered to be key information when troubleshooting process or installation issues. Diagnostics can be viewed on the product's new Enhanced EDDL-based GUI, which provides an intuitive view into the process and gives operators and maintenance personnel the opportunity to detect and respond quickly to abnormal situations.

Rosemount 3051S Series is part of Emerson's range of intelligent, digital field devices that power PlantWeb digital plant architecture.
