- IOT SOLUTIONS
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the futuristic vision of everyday objects having network connectivity—and it's already happening: our phone communicates with our watch and our refrigerator, our car communicates with our address book.
Emerson's Pervasive Sensing solutions are our industry's Internet of Things, and only Emerson has the wireless expertise and capabilities to make it happen: both the cutting-edge technology and the process domain expertise critical to analyzing data and recommending actions.
The expanded view offered by a Pervasive Sensing strategy enables companies to gain actionable insights into areas previously unreachable or manually managed. A Pervasive Sensing strategy enables manufacturers to address these key areas with more and better data, strategic analyses and actionable information. When companies expand their strategy with more sensors, they easily take control of their plant and experience a considerable business impact.

Emerson: Refinery Saves Over $700,000 with Smart WirelessOne of the largest petroleum refineries in the world is equipped to refine various types of crude oil and manufacture various grades of fuel from motor gasoline to Aviation Turbine Fuel. Due to wear and tear, eight hydrogen valves in each refinery were leaking, and each cost $1800 per ton of hydrogen vented. The plant also had leakage on nearly 30 flare control hydrocarbon valves. The refinery wanted a continuous, online monitoring system that could catch leaks early, minimize hydrogen and hydrocarbon production losses, and improve safety for maintenance.Emerson: Advanced Elastomer Systems Upgrades ProductionIn order to maintain its share of the international market for thermoplastic elastomers AES recently expanded its Florida plant by adding a new production line. While the existing lines were operating satisfactorily using a PROVOX distributed control system with traditional analog I/O, AES wanted advanced technology on the new line for greater economy, efficiency, and reliability. AES officials were anxious to get this line into production to meet incoming orders, but two hurricanes slowed construction.Emerson: Refinery Wirelessly Monitors Junction Box PressureThe refining company needed to continuously monitor the pressure in Z-Purge junction boxes around the refinery. These junction boxes were maintained at a low positive pressure to prevent process gasses from entering the junction boxes. These junction boxes are widely distributed throughout the plant. Previously these junction boxes were manually monitored by operators on periodic rounds in the refinery.
Emerson: Wireless Acoustic Transmitter & Steam Trap MonitorThe Rosemount 708 Wireless Acoustic Transmitter provides acoustic event detection including leaks in steam traps and pressure relief valves.The transmitter communicates acoustic level and temperature as well as device and event status via the WirelessHART network for integration into host systems, data historians or energy management software.Emerson: Wireless Temperature TransmitterRosemount 848T Wireless Transmitter reduces the cost of a plant's process monitoring architecture by accepting up to four temperature measurements in one WirelessHART device.Emerson: Smart Wireless GatewayThe Smart Wireless Gateway provides industry leading security, scalability, and data reliability. Layered security ensures that the network stays protected.The Smart Wireless Gateway connects WirelessHART self-organizing networks with host systems and data applications. Modbus communications over RS-485 or Ethernet provide universal integration and system interoperability. The optional OPC functionality from the Gateway offers a means to connect to newer systems and applications while providing a richer set of data.The Smart Wireless Gateway provides industry leading security, scalability, and data reliability. Layered security ensures that the network stays protected. Additional devices can be added at anytime. There is no need to configure communication paths because the Gateway manages the network automatically. This feature also ensures that WirelessHART™ field devices have the most reliable path to send data.
