The Rosemount TankRadar Rex and Pro tank gauging system from Emerson now includes Emerson Smart Wireless functionality. High precision tank gauging with better inventory and loss control can be made available anywhere on the plant at a much smaller cost than before.
The 2410 Tank Hub handles communication from field devices to the control room. One of several commuication options is IEC 62591 (WirelessHart). Any WirelessHart device, such as a 5900 Series level gauge, can be included in the wireless network by connection to the Hub supplied with a THUM Adapter. The THUM Adapter antenna unit transmits tank data to the Smart Wireless Gateway via a wireless link.
A wireless network provides a cost-efficient and easy way to include the measured level and temperature values to a host/DCS system.
