Supplier News

Emerson Process Management announces the acquisition of IntelliSAW Inc., a leading provider of predictive maintenance and continuous monitoring systems that protect electric power transmission and distribution equipment. The acquisition will strengthen the ability of Emerson customers to make better business decisions about their electric distribution systems.

By measuring and monitoring temperature, humidity and partial discharge using advanced sensor and analytic technologies, the IntelliSAW suite enables users to reduce maintenance costs, increase quality of service, improve personnel safety and protect equipment from significant damage.

Tom Moser, group vice president for Emerson Process Management’s measurement and analytical technologies, explains that continuous, reliable power is essential to their customers’ businesses, with outages potentially costing millions of dollars of lost production per day. With the IntelliSAW suite of predictive maintenance and continuous monitoring systems, users will be able to undertake continuous and passive wireless monitoring of critical power assets to avoid unplanned downtime, allowing for increased uptime and revenue generation.

The IntelliSAW product line will join Emerson’s Rosemount portfolio of measurement and analytical technologies, which includes Pervasive Sensing applications that give customers a more complete view of their operations and facilities.

IntelliSAW wireless monitoring capabilities consist of SAW-based temperature sensing, RF-based partial discharge detection, and humidity monitoring instruments along with an advanced human-machine interface. A suite of software tools seamlessly integrates the information into the user’s asset management infrastructure.
