Emerson Process Management has introduced what it claims is the industry’s first WirelessHART pressure gauge. The Rosemount wireless pressure gauge enables remote collection of field data, keeping operators updated on changing field conditions and improving personnel safety by reducing manual operator rounds and field exposure.

Mechanical gauges, according to Emerson, are adversely affected by issues commonly associated with overpressure, vibration, corrosion, extreme temperatures, and accidental damage. Additionally, mechanical gauges are unable to communicate a device status.

The Rosemount wireless pressure gauge utilizes piezo-resistive sensor technology to deliver reliable pressure readings. With the flexibility to accommodate changing process conditions, the gauge also gives up to 150X overpressure protection compared to traditional gauges, which provides for a safer field environment by using two layers of process isolation. A large 4.5-in. gauge face provides easy field visibility.
