Emerson Announces Two-Wire Coriolis Meter for Accurate Flow Measurement

New Model 2200S Transmitter Enables the Use of Reliable and Accurate Micro Motion® ELITE® Coriolis Meters Virtually Anywhere in Your Plant

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - September 11, 2008) - Emerson Process Management announces a two-wire Micro Motion® Coriolis meter, extending the legendary performance of the ELITE® Coriolis flow range to applications requiring low-powered flow devices. Older loop-powered technologies can now be more affordably upgraded to highly accurate and repeatable Micro Motion Coriolis meters without adding additional power or installing new cabling.

The new two-wire Micro Motion 2200S transmitter can be used with a range of Micro Motion ELITE Coriolis sensor sizes and materials of construction to deliver excellent flow measurement performance for continuous process applications. Suitable for integral or extended mount, the innovative loop powered design makes for seamless integration into existing flow meter control systems and is ideal for long wiring runs and applications in hazardous areas.

Equipped with MVD™ digital processing technology, the Micro Motion 2200S transmitter delivers multivariable and diagnostic information via HART® communications for reduced costs through improved process consistency and maximized uptime. Front-end digital processing dramatically reduces signal noise and gives you a faster response time for mass flow measurement as compared to analog devices. Micro Motion two-wire Coriolis is an ideal gas flow meter for use in the chemical, petrochemical and refining industries, and for continuous process and mass balance applications.

"The introduction of Emerson's two-wire Coriolis transmitter represents a significant milestone in the development of Micro Motion measurement technologies. We know customers have been waiting for a breakthrough that would enable them to replace previous generation two-wire flow meters with highly accurate and reliable Coriolis meters -- without incurring the costs of additional wiring and power," said Tom Moser, president, Micro Motion division of Emerson Process Management. "This new development expands the range of plant applications to adopt Coriolis technology -- and does so with the world's best performing Coriolis device."

The Model 2200S transmitter is suitable for a range of process conditions and has CSA Class1 Division 1 or 2 approvals, and ATEX, IECEx, NEPSI Zone 1 and Zone 2 approvals. To facilitate installation in hazardous areas, Micro Motion offers the Model 505 level-shifting power supply, or is compatible with a range of third-party barrier devices. Micro Motion Model 2200S is available with an optional 316L stainless steel enclosure suited for harsh environments, ideally suited for offshore and marine industries.
