Emerson Process Management has used customer input to design the new firmware version 4.5 for its Smart Wireless Gateways. This new firmware will enable users to see and understand process information quickly, helping to make sound decisions and take needed action.
The new version 4.5 software streamlines the wireless network interface, security setup, and field device configuration. It has a consistent look and feel and simplifies information presentation. Visual feedback and information filtering are built into the software to support fast navigation. NAMUR symbols and organised table views provide-at-a-glance actionable information.
“Across Emerson we have continued to invest in Human Centred Design. Our new 4.5 firmware is a great example of the power of this investment,” said Tom Moser, president of Emerson’s Rosemount business. “The clean design and intuitive interface puts actionable information at our customers’ fingertips.”
Firmware version 4.5 will also give users quick access to field instrument diagnostic data for continuous monitoring of device health and the wireless network.
