Wireless Safety Shower and Eyewash Station Monitoring

Let’s close out the week with a short post showing the components to monitor your plant’s safety showers and eye wash stations.

These are often not in locations easily accessible to instrumentation wiring infrastructure to connect back to the plant automation system to alert the plant operators that someone is in need of immediate assistance.

This 4:54 YouTube video from Emerson’s Rosemount team, Wireless Safety Shower and Eyewash Monitoring Solution, shows the components, Topworx GO switches, Rosemount 702 wireless discrete transmitter, and a Smart Wireless Gateway which connects back to the plant automation system. If the plant has an existing IEC 62591 wireless network, the wireless transmitters can join this network without requiring the additional wireless gateway.

It is in the best interests of not only the employees, but also of the companies to keep their worker’s eyes safe from injuries. One way to do that is by having eyewash stations in areas with hazardous chemicals.
