Expert’s answer: What’s the Rosemount 8712 damping time?

You’re right, there’s a maximum Rosemount 8712 damping time. The device has its damping range limited to between 0.0 and 256 seconds. However, you need a good setup to avoid problems in the process control. Some technicians change the configuration, which winds up creating a bad value output.

Unfortunately, this change won’t solve a measurement problem. If your device setup hides the variation, then you ruin your measurement accuracy.

You should only use the damping configuration to stabilize small shifts in the process measurement. If you have a larger variation, then you should try to figure out the problem rather than raise your damping to obscure it.
