Instrumentation and Control Components

Rosemount-logoKerr Controls Product Group offers components along with our control panels from industry leading Rosemount.

  • Pressure Transmitters

    Transducer that converts pressure into an analog electrical signal.

    • Differential Pressure – Senses the difference in pressure between two ports and produce an output signal with reference to a calibrated pressure range.
    • DP level – provide density and liquid interface measurements.
    • Guided wave radar – sends radar pulse down a probe that extends into the tanks contents.
    • Non-Contact radar – can detect and evaluate all echoes within the tank.
    • Ultrasonic  -measure the time interval between sending the signal and receiving the echo to determine the distance to the object.
  • Flow:

    • Magnetic flow Meter – does not have any moving parts and is ideal for wastewater applications or any dirty liquid which is conductive or water based
    • Differential Pressure – measures calculations for pressure inside and outside in different places along a flow path.
    • Vortex Flow meter – used for measuring the flow velocity of gases and liquids in pipelines flowing full.

Not familiar with some of these terms?   Here are a few of the most commonly used terms explained.

  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) – Industrial computer control system that continuously monitors the state of input devices and makes decisions.
  • PLC Control Panels – A PLC or programmable logic controller is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes such as control of machinery. It is designed for multiple arrangements of digital and analog inputs and outputs, extended temperature ranges, immunity to electrical noise and resistance to vibration and impact.
  • Monitoring Panels and Alarm – These panels provide you with monitoring key readouts and can alert you when something is going wrong.
  • Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) – Control AC motor speed and torque by varying motor input frequency and voltage.
  • VFD Control Panels – A VFD or variable-frequency drive is adjustable-speed drive used in electro-mechanical drive systems to control AC motor speed and torque by varying motor input frequency and voltage.
  • Motor Control Panels – These panels are designed to start, operate and control a single motor for use in an agricultural or industrial application.
  • Motor Control Centers – A motor control center is an assembly of one or more enclosed sections having a common power bus and principally containing motor control units.
  • Relay Control Panels – usually used for isolating one voltage level from another
  • Telemetry – Automatic measurement and wireless transmission of data from remote source.
  • Service Entrance Rating (UL) – Interrupts excessive voltage and allows for manually disconnecting form the electrical utility.
  • Reduced Voltage Starters – Uses less energy to start and prevents quicker wear and tear.
  • Multiple Pump Control – Used for to control multiple pumps to maintain consistency and running smoothly.
