Emerson wireless monitored safety showers with WirelessHART

Thursday, 02 October, 2014 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions

Safety showers and eyewash stations are a common sight in many facilities. Rapid access to flooding water can be the difference between mere skin irritation and a fatal injury. Legislation requires that safety showers are placed close to hazards and are easily identified so that if an incident occurs, the injured person can quickly reach these sanctuaries.

Wireless can help users respond faster and provide first aid sooner. By combining a WirelessHART digital transmitter with one or two latched switches, every safety shower and eyewash station can be retrofitted with a wireless monitoring system reporting any activation back into the user’s control room.

Wireless instrumentation allows for the solution to be implemented quickly and without investment in local power sources, cabling and any associated engineering design work. The equipment simply bolts onto existing showers without cutting into any plumbing. This is claimed to be a vast improvement over the various battery-powered flashing lights, plumbed flow switches and instrument cabling solutions that have been implemented in the past.
