launches two new Rosemount radar transmitters
5 May 2003
Emerson Process Management has introduced new multivariable, digital
radar technology transmitters that deliver next generation radar
level measurement for liquid level and interface.
The Rosemount 3300 Guided Wave Radar Transmitter, the first ever
2-wire level and interface radar transmitter, and the Rosemount
5600 non-contact Radar Level Transmitter.
Rosemount 3300 — the first 2-wire level and interface
Quite simply the most sophisticated, loop powered radar transmitter
today, the Multivariable Rosemount 3300 allows simultaneous interface
and level measurement in process tanks.
Using guided wave radar technology, a microwave radar pulse travels
down a probe inside the tank, and receives reflected signals from
liquids levels or materials surrounding the probe.
Both rigid and flexible probes are available and they can be cut
to length on site. There are probe versions for use in long nozzles,
with small fittings/flanges, or in narrow bridles on separators.
The modular construction allows the head electronics to be detached,
freely rotated, or replaced without opening the tank. Above all,
the single small diameter penetration for level and interface measurement
makes a simple and inexpensive installation.
Advanced signal processing gives higher resolution and more reliable
measurements in applications where other transmitters fail. With
turbulent liquid surfaces, or steam laden vapor spaces-these are
the applications where the 3300 thrives. Guided wave radar can also
cope with probe coating and material build-up better than other
contacting level technologies, using Dynamic Gain Optimization available
within the digital signal processing.
Rosemount 3300 can be retrofitted onto existing loop cabling. Being
an intelligent MultiVariable transmitter, further benefits arise
within PlantWeb digital plant architecture, using HART fieldbus
communications, when both surface level and liquid/liquid interface
level can be monitored simultaneously.
Being AMS Aware, the Rosemount 3300 is compatible with the requirements
of modern digital plant control systems. The Rosemount 3300 is available
as intrinsically safe or explosion-proof, built to the industrial
standards and capable of the performance you expect from a Rosemount
Rosemount 5600 free radiating level transmitter
The Rosemount 5600 Series is a powerful, non-contact radar level
measurement transmitter for process applications, on liquids and
slurries. The unit is available with a full range of antennas to
suit any application.
Smart FMCW echo-tracking features and advanced signal processing
techniques combine to give the 5600 high reliability and accuracy,
even in the toughest conditions. The Rosemount 5600 uses a software
module that incorporates all the experience accumulated in thousands
of radar installations around the world to discriminate between
false echo sources and true surface echoes. This software can also
use information provided by the operator about stirrers or other
obstructions as a complement to the automatically collected data.
The Rosemount 5600 integrates with PlantWeb digital plant architecture
and can provide HART or FOUNDATION fieldbus digital communications
protocols, or a standard analog output. For local monitoring, the
unit has an integral display and keypads for basic initial configuration.
Remote displays and as many as six externally mounted temperature
sensors can be driven from the Rosemount 5600 transmitter.
The Rosemount 5600 brings the best in radar level gauging technology
— accuracy, reliability, no liquid contact, no moving parts
— with full industrial control interfacing.
