Emerson Rosemount 5408 non-contacting radar level transmitter

Monday, 01 May, 2017 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions


The Emerson SIL 3-capable Rosemount 5408 non-contacting radar level transmitter provides enhanced diagnostics and remote proof-testing capability, supporting critical overfill prevention applications.

To reduce complexity and enable less experienced workers to easily manage their level measurements for tank monitoring, process control and overfill prevention, the product has been designed to simplify operator tasks.

Pictorial instructions and an intuitive software interface guide the operator through installation, commissioning, proof-testing, operation and maintenance. Enhanced onboard diagnostics support preventive maintenance and provide actionable information, streamlining the troubleshooting process.

The ability to perform proof-testing and site acceptance tests remotely saves time, increases worker efficiency and reduces the reliance on highly experienced staff.

With the need to run plants closer to capacity it is essential that instrumentation provides greater measurement accuracy and reliability, especially in critical overfill prevention applications. To support this, the product uses two-wire frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology that uses a continuous echo to maximise radar signal strength and produce a more robust and reliable measurement. In addition, radar-on-chip technology replaces a circuit board, thereby removing sources of EMC noise which cause signal disturbance, improving measurement accuracy and reliability.

To further enhance measurement reliability, an embedded power back-up removes vulnerability to intermittent power losses.

Supporting efforts to increase plant safety, the product’s SIL 3 capability enables it to be seamlessly integrated into a safety instrumented system. ATEX and IECEx approvals allow installation in hazardous locations.
