Extended Range Antenna Expands the Reach of Smart Wireless Networks
Emerson Process Management has expanded its Smart Wireless solutions with the release of the Extended Range Antenna, available on Rosemount 3051S, 648 and 702 transmitters with WirelessHART output. Oil and gas industry users and others operate facilities where measurement points are separated by long distances, making wiring and powering of measurement points expensive. As a result, users are not able to monitor the performance of these points. The extended range antenna option provides a cost-effective way to access this information by increasing the distance between self-organizing points up to a half mile (2600 feet). Fully compatible with any WirelessHART network, the Extended Range Antenna provides the same HART diagnostic data and 7-to-15-year SmartPower Power Module life as other devices in the Smart Wireless family.
