Let’s conclude our Temperature Insights educational video blog post series with a look at Temperature Measurement Installation Best Practices. In this 4:42 YouTube video, Emerson’s team managing the Rosemount temperature sensors and transmitters explains how to gain accuracy and reliability in temperature measurement through proper installation techniques.

Last week I highlighted an updated tool for designing Foundation fieldbus segments. Emerson’s Jonas Berge left a great comment with links for additional resources to which I wanted to bring visibility in this post. I’ve also inserted some hyperlinks where you can find additional information.
Germany has established itself as a leader in developing renewable power and has accelerated its efforts since the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011.
To date, the share of renewable generation in Germany exceeds 25 percent.
To spur development, the country has in place a tariff system that provides incentive to build solar and wind. This system did just that, but it also raised the prices of German electricity to some of the highest in the world. Not only is the cost high, but the renewable surcharge per kilowatt hour grew considerably. Continue Reading ▶
The process control domain continues to get more and more sophisticated as Emerson’s customers use process models and increasingly sophisticated calculations to optimize process control. Once case in point is an example I saw at last year’s Emerson Exchange conference where one of Emerson’s customers presented how they using advanced mathematics to detect the peak UV absorbance during chromatography elution. While this seems like a simple enough, this required solving partial differential equations, Linear algebra, and vector based mathematics.
The mathematical function used to represent the chromatography peak was the Extreme Value Function which was referenced for this purpose by the Journal of Chromatography. This function is easy to solve using applications such as Matlab. But very difficult to solve using DeltaV controller modules and Calc Blocks! Continue Reading ▶
This tool is specifically designed to verify physical and electrical parameters of a Foundation™ fieldbus (FF) segment, operating under Emerson Process Management host system interfaces, such as DeltaV distributed control systems, AMS Device Manager software, and Ovation expert control systems.
This release has added support for the Windows 7 operating system, improved FF devices library management and support for both Simplex and Redundant H1 cards of DeltaV S series with Integrated Power Supply, and numerous field devices from a variety of manufacturers listed on Device Install kit of website of Emerson. The Segment Design Tool is compatible with the Windows XP / Windows 7 operating systems.
Once you download and install the tool, you’ll want to register it to get full access to all the embedded features within the tool. Also, here is an email link to the support team should you experience any issues.2 comments so far, add yours ▶
