SWEDEN – Emerson, a global leader in technology and software, has introduced the Rosemount 3490 Controller, designed to simplify level and flow measurement in water and wastewater applications.

This next-generation controller emphasizes ease of use, optimized processes, and enhanced sustainability. 

The Rosemount 3490 offers a user-friendly experience through its first-of-its-kind configuration wizard guides, intuitive graphical interface, and a clear LCD display. This simplifies setup, operation, and device status monitoring. 

“In designing the Rosemount 3490, our focus was firmly on outstanding usability and creating a controller for flow and level measurement applications that is as easy to set up and operate as possible,” said Vladislav Snitko, radar level solutions engineer at Emerson’s measurement solutions business. 

Paired with the Rosemount 1208C Level and Flow Transmitter, the 3490 Controller provides precise measurements with straightforward configuration.

This integrated solution streamlines various tasks in water and wastewater treatment, including pump control, filtration, sludge handling, and open channel flow measurement. 

“This combination helps industries to optimize operational efficiency across a broad range of water and wastewater applications,” according to a company statement. The statement further highlights the solution’s durability, making it suitable for harsh environments. 

Beyond user-friendliness, the Rosemount 3490 promotes sustainability through accurate measurement. This prevents water waste and overfills, contributing to conservation efforts. Additionally, the controller simplifies regulatory compliance by facilitating report generation and data management.

It supports various flow measurements, calculations, and data sharing via Ethernet connectivity. 

“The Rosemount 3490 Controller and Rosemount 1208C Level and Flow Transmitter together form a cost-effective, dedicated solution for water and wastewater applications that not only helps organisations to reduce downtime and costs but also safeguards water safety and quality,” concluded Snitko 

Concurrently, Emerson has been selected by H2 Hauler, an Australian-based company that designs, manufactures, and certifies storage and distribution equipment for compressed hydrogen as its technology partner to provide a consolidated and integrated hydrogen mobility business management system. 

Selected for its comprehensive automation portfolio, mobility solutions and hydrogen expertise, Emerson will fully automate H2 Hauler’s loading and monitoring systems, manage custody transfer, and monitor trailer tube assets to enable safe and sustainable transport of hydrogen. 

“As demand for hydrogen accelerates across heavy-duty transportation applications, we need systems in place to safely, reliably and efficiently transport hydrogen from where it is produced to where it is needed,” said Mike Train, Emerson’s chief sustainability officer.
