Emerson updates wireless gateway firmware

February 9, 2015 - Emerson Process Management released version 4.5 for its Smart Wireless Gateways. This firmware will enable users to see and understand process information quickly, helping to make sound decisions and take needed action.

Version 4.5 software streamlines the wireless network interface, security setup, and field device configuration. It has a consistent look and feel and simplifies information presentation. Visual feedback and information filtering are built into the software to support fast navigation. NAMUR symbols and organized table views provide-at-a-glance actionable information.

Firmware version 4.5 will also give users quick access to field instrument diagnostic data for continuous monitoring of device health and the wireless network.

“Across Emerson we have continued to invest in Human Centered Design. Our new 4.5 firmware is a great example of the power of this investment,” said Tom Moser, president of Emerson’s Rosemount business. “The clean design and intuitive interface puts actionable information at our customers’ fingertips.”
