According to Emerson, St. Louis, MO, its recently launched Rosemount TankMaster Mobile offering is the world’s first cross-platform inventory management software application for tank gauging systems. By providing immediate secure access to critical, real-time tank data to a wide range of stakeholders via smartphones, tablets and computers, this easy-to-use mobile solution is said to support better decision-making and improved operational efficiency and safety.
CAPABILITIES AND FEATURES
The Rosemount TankMaster Inventory Management Software suite of tools collects tank-gauging data such as level, temperature, water interface level, and pressure, and calculates volume and mass for inventory and custody-transfer purposes. The new Rosemount TankMaster Mobile application, which is offered as an addition to the existing software suite infrastructure, allows mobile access to live tank data. It provides a clear overview of all tanks at a facility, with the ability to quickly drill-down to detailed information that leads to more efficient tank monitoring.
Features include the ability to organize tanks in groups; customize which tank parameters are displayed; and quickly set a watchlist for monitoring tanks of special importance. User groups can be created with different privileges to view tanks and tank parameters. Functionality to generate and export reports will also be available.
Emerson notes that this mobile application meets the requirements for network and system security detailed in the international standard IEC 62443-3-3. Its design is based on a three-tier architecture that constitutes separate security zones, and all the data transported is encrypted using the Transport Layer Security protocol. It also supports two-factor log-in to help ensure that only authorized users can access the system.
