Collect Tank Data Wirelessly

March 5, 2010
With the addition of the vendor’s Smart Wireless technology, radar-based Rosemount TankRadar Rex and Pro tank-gauging systems can be installed in a storage tank farm without the need to install costly long-distance signal wiring. 
Tank-gauging data from remotely located tanks, previously collected manually or not at all, can now be easily integrated into the control system, resulting in more efficient tank capacity utilization, more accurate inventory and better loss control, says the vendor. The Smart Wireless Thum adapter can be installed on existing Hart instruments to free up diagnostics and previously inaccessible process information, and provides the wireless interface between the TankRadar Rex or TankRadar Pro radar gauge and the TankMaster inventory software or host/DCS system via WirelessHart communication.Emerson Process Managementwww.EmersonProcess.com800.854.8257
