Emerson Automation Solutions

Monday, 26 October, 2015


Emerson has acquired IntelliSAW, a provider of systems that protect electric power transmission and distribution equipment by measuring and monitoring temperature, humidity and partial discharge using advanced sensor and analytic technologies.

The IntelliSAW suite of predictive maintenance continuous monitoring systems is said to reduce maintenance costs and increase quality of service. The systems also increase personnel safety and protect equipment from significant damage.

“Continuous, reliable power is essential to our customers’ businesses, with outages potentially costing millions of dollars of lost production per day,” said Tom Moser, group vice president for Emerson Process Management’s measurement and analytical technologies. “Continuous and passive wireless monitoring allows users to safely monitor the health of critical power assets to avoid unplanned downtime, allowing for increased uptime and revenue generation.”

The IntelliSAW product line will become part of 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. The acquisition strengthens users’ ability to make better business decisions about their electric distribution systems.

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