Tank gauging systems perform bulk liquid measurements on storage tanks on tank terminals, a.k.a. tank farms. These systems provide inventory management and overfill prevention safety functions. The systems include level measurement devices such as safety certified Rosemount 5900S radar level gauges, Rosemount 2240S multi-input temperature transmitters, a Rosemount 2410 tank hub which handles communication between the field devices and the control room for single or multiple tanks, a Rosemount 2460 System Hub that transfers real time tank gauging data from field devices to the TankMaster inventory management software and/or control system.

I wanted to share that background for another “how to” video about one of these elements in the tank gauging system. This 5:45 YouTube video, Rosemount 2460 How to Change Motherboard describes the process of changing a Rosemount 2460 System Hub motherboard. It shows mechanical installation, wiring, and how to restore the configuration database.

Visit the Tank Gauging System on Emerson.com for more on these technologies for precise measurements for inventory and custody transfer applications in bulk liquid storage tanks. You can also connect and interact with other tank gauging experts in the Measurement Instrumentation group in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
