Emerson announces Radar Master app for the AMS Trex Device Communicator

May 29, 2019 – Emerson has added the Radar Master app for the AMS Trex Device Communicator, making it easier for field technicians to configure Rosemount radar level transmitters. Radar level devices are critical to help deliver measurements on both liquid and solid materials. The app allows users to bring the radar configuration tools of Radar Master software to the field.

The AMS Trex Device Communicator enables technicians to carry a handheld communicator that is capable of both configuring and powering radar devices via the Radar Master app.

Graphics and a touchscreen interface in the Radar Master app help ensure that users can more quickly configure tank measurement devices with the correct settings. Tank geometry is drawn to match the physical parameters of the actual tank, allowing technicians to tune measurement settings to prevent false echoes from static objects in the tank such as ladder rungs, agitator blades, and baffles, which can delay the process of obtaining accurate measurements. 

The design of the AMS Trex communicator is suitable for working in the small, and often hazardous, environment of a tank. One-handed operation, NFC-enabled user security, and intrinsic safety ratings enable technicians to work safely and effectively in these difficult areas.

Users can track, view, and trend tank level and alert information to identify issues and aid troubleshooting by using the new built-in historian. Technicians can also view and compare snapshots of past configuration data in a timeline.

Every configuration change made in the field is automatically recorded and time-stamped, providing an automated audit trail. Changes are updated to the AMS Device Manager database whenever the AMS Trex device detects a WiFi signal or USB connection to ensure database accuracy and measurement data integrity.
