Reducing downtime with eddy current measurement chain solution

12 November 2017

Emerson’s newest eddy current measurement chain solution helps shorten process downtime by eliminating factory calibration and delays in acquiring replacement parts.

Traditional eddy current chains are complex, and parts management is difficult. With the new AMS EZ 1000 eddy current signal digital converter, measurement chain complexity is reduced by moving from multiple converters to a single user configurable digital converter, enabling easy in-the-field calibration.
Organisations can shorten the length of process shutdowns due to measurement chain failures with a single, do-it-all digital converter that can be configured to support all eddy current sensors in the field. The single converter – that technicians configure and calibrate digitally via USB – is compatible even with third-party sensors. Users no longer need to incur extended downtime while waiting for factory calibration of replacement parts.
Because a single AMS EZ 1000 digital converter can be easily configured and calibrated on-site for many different applications, parts numbers are decreased by nearly 90%. Users simply start the configuration software, enter chain details such as sensor type, cable length, and measurement ranges, and perform one-step automated calibration to prepare the measurement chain for use.
The new AMS EZ measurement chain equipment complies with API 670 certification and is certified for installation in environments where Class 1 Div2/ATEX Zone 2 approvals are required. It also features steel-shielded cabling, enhanced oil tightness, and easy-to-use twist connections to enable its use in tough environments.
