If you have an instrumentation and automation project for a new installation you are faced with many technology selection decisions. For instance, instrumentation based on digital communications technologies, which provide robust diagnostics and predictive capabilities such as Foundation fieldbus, have been with us for nearly two decades. And wireless instrumentation, built on standards such as […]

One of the benefits of advancing technologies can be increased reliability. For measurement devices in the processing industries, these technology improvements can mean increased operations and maintenance productivity through extended calibration intervals, improved measurement repeatability, and overall improved measurement stability. Emerson’s Michael Olivier shared with me improvements that have been made to the Rosemount 3051S […]

I want to once again elevate the comments of Emerson’s Jonas Berge around the topic of educational materials for the Foundation fieldbus digital communications technology. In a post, For Foundation Fieldbus Segment Design-Use Typicals Approach, a commenter asked: Fieldbus technologies have always presented an element of fear amongst the “uninitiated” user. Is there a Fieldbus […]
