Emerson extends capabilities

Emerson Process Management has released cost-saving new diagnostic capabilities in its FieldQ rack & pinion fully integrated valve actuator and controls. The updated capabilities greatly simplify daily work practices with the release of FieldQ Foundation fieldbus Version 3, with device diagnostic alarm management in a flexible modular package.
The enhanced diagnostic alarm tools enable users to categorize and prioritize device alarms based on the criticality of the device and the severity of the problem detected by the diagnostics. Alarm settings can be configured to alert appropriate plant personnel so they can take action without being distracted by irrelevant alarms.

“Our device diagnostics can be tailored for maintenance and matched to predictive routines. Users will see efficiency improvements in their daily maintenance and turnaround planning, which help to maximize uptime and reduce costs,” said vice president, valve automation rack & pinion products, Emerson Process Management, Sue Ooi.
