NEW MOBILE APP FOR CONFIGURING RADAR LEVEL TRANSMITTERS

Emerson’s Radar Master app for the AMS Trex device communicator makes it easier for field technicians to safely and efficiently configure Rosemount radar level transmitters. Radar level devices are critical in helping to deliver accurate, reliable measurements of both liquid and solid materials. The new app allows users to easily bring the radar configuration tools of Radar Master software into the field.

Radar level devices are typically mounted in high, hard-to-reach locations that sometimes do not have onsite power. To configure these devices, technicians typically carry laptops and device power sources into the field. The AMS Trex device communicator solves those problems by enabling technicians to carry a handheld communicator that is capable of both configuring and powering radar devices via the Radar Master app.

Dynamic graphics and an intuitive touchscreen interface help ensure that users can more quickly configure tank measurement devices with the correct settings. Tank geometry is drawn to match the physical parameters of the actual tank, allowing technicians to more easily tune measurement settings to prevent false echoes from static objects in the tank, such as ladder rungs, agitator blades and baffles, which can delay the process of obtaining accurate measurements.

The communicator’s compact design makes it ideal for working in the small and often hazardous environments of tanks. One-handed operation, NFC-enabled user security and intrinsic safety ratings enable technicians to work effectively and safely in those difficult areas.

“Now, Radar Master users can leave their laptops behind when they go to the field and more easily achieve accurate, reliable configuration even in hazardous locations by using the AMS Trex,” says Anna Olander, General Manager for Process Radar at Emerson.

Users can track, view and trend tank level and alert information to identify issues and aid troubleshooting by using the new built-in historian. They can also view and compare snapshots of past configuration data in a timeline, giving better insight to the operational impact of changes.

Every configuration change made in the field is automatically recorded and time-stamped, providing an automated audit trail. Changes are updated to the AMS Device Manager database whenever the AMS Trex device detects a WiFi signal or USB connection to ensure database accuracy and measurement data integrity.
