  • Emerson Proprietary Reliable Instrumentation on Remote Compressor Stations Steffen Terreblanche National Wireless Specialist Rosemount
  • Your plant, a high performance machine!
  • Consisting of various components Infrastructure E.G. Piping, cable trays, cables etc
  • The driving force Your control system. PLC, RTU or DCS
  • What contacts your process?? What regulates your process? What influences your control strategy?
  • Accuracy and reliability! But how can we make it better? • Less trips to the field • High accuracy 10 year stability • Smart instrument diagnostics • Onboard meter verification • Power advisory diagnostics
  • Tire Integrity is Critical to Automobile Operation Reliability Safety Performance
  • Verifying Tire Integrity Routine manual inspections Automated warning Automated warning with diagnostics Complete health visibility HIGH LOW TechnologyHuman Effort
  • The Same Evolution is Happening in Process Industries Routine Manual inspections Automated process loops Automated process loops with diagnostics HIGH LOW TechnologyHuman Effort What’s Next? Complete health visibility Pressure relief valve open
  • The next generation of instrumentation will deliver high-value, Business Critical information… Today’s Business Challenges
  • INFORMATIONCOST What Has Prevented Pervasive Sensing Historically? INFORMATION BENEFIT HIGH LOW • Cost and difficulty of deployment • Technology complexity • Previously immeasurable • Data access and interpretation • Resource priorities Non- Process Safety Reliability Energy Process Control Safety Systems
  • INFORMATIONCOST INFORMATION BENEFIT HIGH LOW Why Now? • Innovative sensors • Wireless communications • Power technology • Advanced analytic capabilities • Embedded expertise • Mobile & location technologies Non- Process Safety Reliability Energy Process Control Safety Systems
  • Achieving Actionable Information Through Pervasive Sensing “Business Critical” Site Safety Reliability Energy Efficiency … … “Process Critical” Process Control Process Safety ACTIONABLE INFORMATION Automated AlgorithmsSensor Awareness STRATEGIC INTERPRETATION
  • The Value of Business Critical Sensing is Already Being Recognized Next generation process plant is currently deploying wireless infrastructure to grow measurements by 60% for business critical applications Process Critical: 20,000 process control instruments 8,000 Energy Costs 2,000 Personnel Safety 2,000 Reliability
  • Wireless instruments enable monitoring of essential assets
