The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute announced today that Rohrback Cosasco Systems (RCS) has introduced the new ISA100 Microcor Wireless Transmitter (MWT-3905). The MWT will be the first corrosion monitoring instrument to integrate with a Yokogawa or any other ISA100 wireless system. Multiple Microcor Wireless Transmitters can be combined with wireless extenders to form a single large network to cover up to tens of thousands of devices. ISA100 gives users the flexibility of choosing either star or mesh network topologies. RCS ISA100 devices have an effective wireless range of 1,500 feet (450m), providing a large and reliable network coverage area. The Microcor Wireless Transmitter uses high-resolution metal loss measurement providing 18-bit resolution, and is the industry's most widely used and only technology capable of operating in any process environment. The wireless corrosion monitoring transmitters can be deployed in hazardous area locations (Class 1, Zone 1) with temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C. The Microcor Wireless Transmitter power module has a typical life of three years and is hazardous-location certified to allow change out in the hazardous area.
