Temperature loop transmitter?
I have a temperature loop system where I am receiving all information from the field directly into the PLC without a transmitter, It means that PLC is reading the RTD and thermocouple directly. Is there any advantage to apply a transmitter in the field? ...
Temperature transmitter class T3!
I am trying to install a thermowell into my process to measure the temperature of the flue gas. All temperature transmitters are in compliance with temperature class T3 means they support up to 200 degree Celsius. The surface of the application is higher than 200 degrees Celsius, is that a problem t ...
Effect of electromagnetic pipeline mapper on magmeter
I'm looking for references and comments about the effects that an electromagnetic pipeline mapper can produce on a magnetic flow meter. I'd like to know any obstacle or special consideration when using both devices at the same time on a pipeline of more than ten kilometers. ...
Can I have a FOUNDATION Fieldbus wireless device?
I've been reading about wirelessHART devices, but I can't tell if other protocols offer wireless connectivity. Can FF devices go wireless, or is it only the HARTs? ...
What to do when field communicator and HART device access denied?
I'm having trouble between my field communicator and the HART device. For some reason, something has denied me full access. What do I do? ...

Storage tank level indicator
Please, could you suggest the best level indicator on a storage tank application? The tank will have methanol and ethyl acetate along with a sticky material. We need to avoid tank overflow! ...
One temperature sensor and two transmitters!
Can we connect two temperature transducers to one RTD? We need to maintain the temperature gauge and somehow place a transducer device to get a 4-20 mA output. Do we need to disable the existing gauge and replace it with a temperature gauge with this output? ...
Critical instruments? Plant asset management
Should we schedule replacement for our critical valve accessories (like solenoid valves and limit switches) and critical process transmitters according to their projected lifespan? ...
FOUNDATION Fieldbus or HART?
Hi. Both FF and HART can provide field data to the marshalling cabinet. Which is more reliable for the oil and gas industry? ...
