Emerson enhances magnetic flowmeter line with new safety and diagnostic features

Rosemount® 8700M Magnetic Flowmeter line is enhanced to help users take advantage of improved installation, maintenance and process management practices

AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 22, 2014) - Emerson Process Management has released the new Rosemount 8700M Magnetic Flowmeter line which provides enhanced safety for hazardous area applications along with intelligent diagnostics. These features help users across a variety of industries take advantage of improved installation, maintenance and process management practices.

The 8700M line has been enhanced with advanced safety features for added reliability in hazardous areas enabling the highest level of magnetic flowmeter approvals. Glass feed-throughs transmit signals between isolated compartments of the transmitter enclosure, providing the most effective barrier for safety and reliability. The all-welded sensor design and dual compartment transmitter housing keep critical components isolated from environmental hazards – a leading cause of electronics failures.

Enhanced diagnostics, including Smart Meter Verification and the new Electrode Coating Detection provide users with more information than ever before about the flowmeter, installation, and process, enabling more informed decision making, easier identification of process issues, and simplified flowmeter verification.  The Electrode Coating Detection diagnostic identifies coating on the electrode before the sensor signal is compromised, helping to prevent inaccurate flow measurement.

The 8700M line leverages Human Centered Design concepts to make it easier to install and use than ever before. With a fully functional through the glass Local Operator Interface (LOI), all diagnostic information is literally at the tip of a finger in any environment. Additionally, an enhanced terminal compartment with larger connections on the sensor and transmitter simplify field wiring.
