AUSITN, TEXAS (March 23, 2004) — Emerson Process Management announces the new Rosemount® 752 Remote Indicator that provides multi-function display on FOUNDATION fieldbus segments. Adding to the breadth of PlantWeb® digital plant architecture functions, the Rosemount 752 makes it possible to display data from intelligent field devices throughout the plant. The Rosemount 752 has ATEX intrinsically safe approval and FISCO certification to enable efficient use with devices and displays installed in hazardous areas, as is common in many plants.Designed for monitoring in the field and close to the process, the Rosemount 752 is able to connect and sequentially display up to eight function block values from any device on an H1 segment. Each plant measurement or reading is shown for 3 seconds, along with a tag identifier and the engineering units. Applications for the 752 Indicator include the display at grade level of data from any instrument mounted in an inaccessible location. For example, the indicator conveniently acquires data from instruments located on the top or bottom of tanks for use in measuring tank level and contents. Applications have also included the display of flow in elevated steam lines, and water flow in buried pipelines. The Rosemount 752 is a perfect companion for the Rosemount 848T multi-input temperature transmitter, enabling the display of 8 separate temperature readings.The Remote Indicator can display all relevant information about a control loop, including the set point being requested, the output of a PID controller driving a valve, the actual valve position, and any function block output from any device on the segment. The 752 can also be equipped with its own function to provide advanced calculation and control capability for use with devices on the segment.About Emerson Process Management Emerson Process Management (www.emersonprocess.com), an Emerson business, is a leader in helping businesses automate their production, processing and distribution in the food and beverage, chemical, oil and gas, refining, pulp and paper, power, pharmaceutical and other industries.
