The world’s most popular transmitter has just been elevated to address some of the most relevant challenges that users face today with pressure instrumentation. The new capabilities on the 3051 focus on key issues relating to configuration, maintenance, and reliability. These challenges are addressed by improving the ease of use of the transmitter, expanding diagnostics capabilities, and enhancing safety features. The new 3051 capabilities include but are not limited to Bluetooth configuration and maintenance, a backlit graphical display, plugged impulse line diagnostics, and guided proof testing.
Brad and Connor opened their presentation by showing the Rosemount family of transmitters, manifolds, wireless pressure gauges, differential pressure (DP) level, and DP flow instruments. They highlighted more than three decades of innovations in these pressure measurement devices. Today these innovations include a graphical display, Bluetooth connectivity, quick service buttons, and application-specific configurations. Diagnostics have also advanced to include advanced safety, such as guided proof testing and logging, process alerts, plugged lines, loop integrity, and maintenance logs.
The release of Bluetooth connectivity streamlines configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting. The Bluetooth-enabled devices can be accessed up to 50 feet / 15 meters from a mobile device. This capability enables faster device location, avoidance of being in hazardous areas, and greater reliability from not exposing the internals of the devices to the environment. Mobile access with the AMS Device Configurator is now available for Android and soon for AMS Trex handheld devices, iOS mobile devices, and Windows tablets & PCs.
They shared some ease-of-use improvements, including backlit local displays, multiple process variable (PV) displays, maintenance icons with descriptive text, and multi-language support. Quick service buttons on the device are available for everyday maintenance tasks such as zero trim, view configuration, re-range, loop testing, and display rotation. The user interface has been updated to provide a consistent experience across various viewing tools—PCs, mobile devices, handhelds, and locator operator interfaces.
Enhanced safety and device logs include diagnostic logs for insights into the process, calibration logs, and proof-test logs. These capabilities in Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitters are now available for quotation. Visit the Rosemount 3051 section on Emerson.com for more on these capabilities, including a product datasheet, an overview video, a virtual product demonstration, and more.
Update: Brad also notes in a LinkedIn comment:
Configuration for Flow and Level applications just got easier with dedicated output variables, totalizer and volume calculations, and guided level configuration for even the most complex remote seal installations.
Update 2: Updated the section on platform availability for the AMS Device Configurator.
