Emerson Launches New Rosemount(R) Radar Transmitter
Echo-tracking and advanced signal processing give high reliability and accuracy

CHANHASSEN, MN (March 7, 2003) -- The Rosemount 5600 Series is a powerful, non-contact radar level measurement transmitter for process applications, on liquids and slurries. The unit is available with a full range of antennas to suit any application.

Smart FMCW echo-tracking features and advanced signal processing techniques combine to give the 5600 high reliability and accuracy, even in the toughest conditions. The Rosemount 5600 uses a software module that incorporates all the experience accumulated in thousands of radar installations around the world, to discriminate between false echo sources and true surface echoes. This software can also use information provided by the operator about stirrers or other obstructions as a complement to the automatically collected data.

The Rosemount 5600 integrates with PlantWeb(R) digital plant architecture and can provide HART(R) or FOUNDATION(TM) fieldbus digital communications protocols, or a standard analog output. For local monitoring, the unit has an integral display and keypads for basic initial configuration. Remote displays and as many as six externally mounted temperature sensors can be driven from the Rosemount 5600 transmitter.

The Rosemount 5600 brings the best in radar level gauging technology - accuracy, reliability, no liquid contact, no moving parts - with full industrial control interfacing.
