Emerson Process Management has extended the predictive intelligence capabilities of PlantWeb® digital architecture with the release of its Smart Wireless THUM™ Adapter. The adapter can be installed on existing HART® field instruments to free up diagnostics and process information that had previously been inaccessible in wired legacy system installations. Possible process improvements include:
- Gaining access to advanced diagnostics.
- Enabling enhanced valve capabilities.
- Remotely managing devices and monitoring health.
- Making any HART device wireless.
- Efficiently gathering data from multivariable devices.
