Bluetooth enabled radar level transmitter ensures safe and optimised operations

30 January 2023

Emerson has introduced the Rosemount 3408 level transmitter – a non-contacting radar device designed to optimise ease-of-use at every touchpoint, leading to increased site and worker safety and enhanced plant performance.

The versatile level measurement solution is said to be suitable for use in a range of industries and applications, such as chemical storage, mixing tanks and open air applications.

While the benefits of radar level measurement are widely acknowledged, radars are still sometimes perceived as being complex to commission, operate and maintain. Addressing this concern, the device provides a range of functions that reduce complexity throughout its lifecycle.

The user interface provides pictorial instructions, guiding operators through installation, commissioning, proof-testing, operation and maintenance. 

The new device is based on frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology, which enables accurate and reliable measurement, even in challenging process environments. It is also suitable for use in critical safety applications such as overfill prevention, as it is Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2-certified and designed according to the International Electrotechnical Commission’s IEC 61508 standard relating to functional safety.

Emerson’s proprietary Smart Meter Verification software provides an easy means of verifying the health of the device, without interrupting the process. Official records of device verification are generated, simplifying compliance with regulatory requirements. In addition, an advanced diagnostics suite continuously monitors key device health and process parameters.
