2014 Recipients

Emerson Process Management

Rosemount 3051S Advanced Diagnostics Pressure Transmitter

The Rosemount 3051S Advanced Diagnostics pressure transmitter is the industry’s only device to provide comprehensive diagnostics that go beyond the transmitter itself to cover both the electrical loop and the process. The Rosemount 3051S Advanced Diagnostics pressure transmitter has been certified to the IEC 61508:2010 standard and has obtained better failure rates due to its innovative Power Advisory Diagnostics. These diagnostics provide additional insight into previously undetected dangerous failures to increase overall safety. This early detection allows users to proactively respond to and correct potential electrical loop issues before they impact process safety.


General Electric

SSX/SST Safety Series Isolator and Splitter

The SSX/SST is a highly versatile, functionally safe isolator with many options. Available as 2-wire loop or 4-wire line/mains powered, it provides isolation and signal conversion, protecting and enhancing SIS loops. It can pass HART® data in both directions, or is available with HART filtering. The 4-wire SST is available as a splitter which takes the input from your process signals and creates two identical, isolated outputs to two devices. It can pass or filter HART data to one or both outputs. All versions have a systematic capability of SIL 3, approved for single use in SIS up to SIL 2.
