Emerson Process Management’s AMS suite now supports Detector Electronics (Det-Tronics) Eagle Quantum Premier safety system, Emerson announced Oct. 2. The integration with Det-Tronics provides AMS Suite users with the ability to monitor both basic process control devices and safety assets, such as flame and gas detectors from a single view.

The new capabilities should help users streamline maintenance work practices and ensure the availability of these critical instruments, according to Emerson. This solution broadens the scope of assets that can be integrated into AMS Suite beyond traditional instrumentation and valves.

Utilizing the connection between AMS Suite and Det-Tronics S3 software, users are able to view diagnostic information from flame and gas detectors, indicating when maintenance activities such as device calibration or optics cleaning should be performed. Upon clearing these conditions, the S3 software will provide the updated information to AMS Device Manager to update the device history.
