Mar. 14, 2018 – Emerson has introduced the Rosemount 8712EM wall mount magnetic flow meter transmitter offering diagnostic capabilities and usability features for users in various process industries.

The meter’s local operator interface was designed using human centred design concepts, “making it easier and faster for technicians to navigate in the field,” says the company. Emerson explains that universal transmitter capability allows the 8712EM to operate with any existing magnetic flow meter sensor and allows backwards compatibility with all Rosemount magnetic sensors. The Rosemount 8712EM’s diagnostic suite includes high process noise detection and ground fault detection, says the company, and the electrode coating diagnostic offers two set points to alert when coating is present and when it is affecting flow measurement for improved preventative maintenance. Meanwhile, Smart Meter Verification continuously monitors the health and performance of the meter. The Rosemount 8712EM supports HART 7 for 32-character-long tag capability for reduced start up time, as well as options for HART outputs and Modbus RS-485.
