Emerson Automation Solutions introduces a new platform for its Rosemount X-well Technology surface sensing temperature measurement solution. The X-well Technology with a Rosemount 3144P transmitter takes its place alongside the original WirelessHART X-well Technology to extend this non-intrusive temperature sensing technology for users in conventional wired I/O environments.
This new product expands potential application possibilities for X-well Technology in plants and facilities where wired networks are already installed, or where WirelessHART has not yet been deployed. Other users have found X-well to be a useful replacement for difficult thermowell installations, which often have a wired connection already available and can be reused with the wired version of X-well.
X-well Technology works by measuring the pipe surface temperature and ambient temperature, and combining this information with an understanding of the thermal conductivity properties of the installation and process piping to produce an accurate process temperature measurement.
