Larry Wolfe just got our first THUM and installed it on our proof of concept system.
So what’s a THUM you may ask? Emerson’s 755 Smart Wireless THUM adapter (it's that bulbous attachment on top of the Rosemount 3144 temperature transmitter) adapts the wired HART protocol to the Wireless HART protocol. It's the perfect choice to set free all the diagnostic and process data trapped in HART devices stranded on your legacy automation platform. Check out the THUM here.
We've just had a customer here in the Carolinas purchase 75 THUM's - that's a heck of a way to kickstart your wireless mesh network.
