Coriolis flow transmitter for improved flow measurement developed by Emerson

Emerson Process Management has introduced a coriolis flow transmitter designed to translate measurement data into meaningful insight and instruction.

The Micro Motion Model 5700 Transmitter is applicable for a range of applications, from liquid and gas custody transfer to simple process control.

'The Model 5700 transmitter was developed using Emerson's Human Centred Design approach to technology innovation,' says Jason Leapley, product manager. 'We performed usability testing to fully understand user information demands and real-world application requirements. Every feature of the Model 5700 was designed to reduce the time and expertise needed to install and operate the coriolis meter.'

The transmitter provides users access to detailed measurement history for troubleshooting or optimising the process. The graphical user interface was designed for intuitive operation, with simplified installation, configuration, maintenance and troubleshooting. The new transmitter translates coriolis measurement data into useful operating insight through robust, time-stamped history files for process and meter health data, and logs for configuration changes and alarms.

Digital signal processing architecture provides fast flow response time, making it optimal for custody transfer proving and short batching applications. The historian feature also improves Micro Motion Smart Meter Verification, which provides measurement of the full meter health without process interruption.

Compatible with new and previously installed Micro Motion ELITE coriolis sensors, the Model 5700 has a field-mount design that is suitable with most hazardous area installation practices and with both integral and remote installation options. It currently includes options for analogue, pulse, discrete and Modbus outputs and an analogue or HART input. The Model 5700 and additional digital communication options will be available for other Micro Motion meters and platforms in the near future.
