Temp Transmitters Support Process Control, Asset Management & More

Accurate, repeatable temperature measurements remain critical for reliable industrial process control and product quality. Today’s smart transmitters are easier to use than ever and can support process control, asset management initiatives and more. Global end users are looking for cost-effective, easier-to-use, and easier-to-maintain transmitters. This drives suppliers to invest in innovative technologies that improve efficiencies, help ensure quality, and reduce costs. Suppliers are now adding advanced features to the basic models to address all types of measurement requirements. These latest versions offer self-diagnostics, superior accuracy, increased performance, and long-term stability.

IIoT-Enabled Solutions Leveraging Smart Field Instrumentation

Increasingly, end users are investigating ways to incorporate asset-related data from their temperature (and other) smart field instrumentation into their larger, IIoT-enabled asset management strategies. ARC research indicates that automation technology suppliers are making targeted investments in this area. IIoT-enabled capabilities such as remote monitoring and remote services can help establish a more collaborative relationship between end users and suppliers. These solutions are now available for horizontal integration along the value creation chain and consistent engineering.

Temp Transmitters Support of Control, Asset Management Yields Benefits

The key end user industries for temperature transmitters continue to be chemical, oil & gas, power generation, refining, and food & beverage; and it is from these industries that ARC expects to see future growth for these products. Key factors that will contribute to increased adoption of smart temperature transmitters over the next five years include a shortfall of qualified personnel; increasing end user focus on asset management, safety concerns and regulations; and increasing acceptance of smart measurement technologies in process industries.

Manufacturers all over the world realize the cost-saving benefits of implementing industry-standard digital protocols to enable asset management solutions, particularly in the operations and maintenance phase of the asset’s lifecycle. This leads to increased adoption of digital communication protocols and fuels demand for smart, microprocessor-based temperature transmitters. At the same time, end users seek new ways to adopt wireless, advanced diagnostics, and non-intrusive temperature measurement capabilities for improved asset and process performance and more consistent product quality.
