The X-well Technology with a Rosemount 3144P transmitter works with the company’s WirelessHart X-well Technology to extend nonintrusive temperature sensing technology for users in conventional wired I/O environments. It works by measuring the pipe surface temperature and ambient temperature, and combining this information with an understanding of the thermal conductivity properties of the installation and process piping to produce an accurate process temperature measurement. It is suited for use in plants where wired networks are already installed or where WirelessHart has not yet been deployed. It also can serve as a replacement for difficult thermowell installations, which often have a wired connection available that can be reused with the wired version of the surface temperature sensor.
