Section 2: Installation Considerations
Step 5: software settings
Note that solids applications in general are difficult, therefore Emerson Process
Management has developed a special solids mode in the radar database. This means
that the radar database configuration is optimized for solids measurements when the
“solids” check-box is selected in the Rosemount Radar Master (RRM) setup window.
Additional adjustments of the database might in some cases become necessary. In such
cases, contact the factory for further details on how to proceed.
Some solids build up electrostatic discharges, which might result in explosion risks.
Therefore, the Rosemount 5600 Series has been approved for use in such
environments. See the Rosemount 5600 Series Radar Transmitter Product Data Sheet
(00813-0100-4024) for detailed information about approvals. Also note that the PTFE
bag is NOT approved for use in hazardous area.
For more information on measuring solids, refer to the Guided Wave Radar in Solid Level
Applications (Document No. 00840-2300-4811), and Measuring Solids with a Rosemount 5600
Series Non-Contacting Radar (Document No. 00840-0100-4024) Technical Notes.
