Emerson Targets Emerging Multibillion-Dollar “Pervasive Sensing” Market

Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced today it is leveraging its leadership in wireless technology and measurement instrumentation to tap what it calls the “pervasive sensing” market. Pervasive sensing enables refineries, chemical plants and other industrial facilities to get more and deeper data in ways they could not before about all aspects of the enterprise, giving them even greater visibility to operate more safely, reliably and profitably.

Emerson estimates over the next 10 years, the pervasive sensing market will more than double the existing $16 billion traditional measurement market.

Pervasive sensing extends the company’s focus beyond traditional process control and safety systems to address business-critical applications such as site safety, security, reliability, and energy efficiency in oil and gas, refining, chemical, power, mining and other industries, where installing additional sensors has traditionally been physically difficult, expensive or technically challenging.

With the advent of wireless technologies and advances in sensor technology and installation techniques, companies can install wireless, non-intrusive, affordable and easy-to-use sensors that can continuously monitor and detect operations. New software applications and embedded sensor intelligence are also becoming available to interpret the data from these sensors and convert it into actionable information, enabling prompt response to potential problems and better insight for improved decision-making.

“Our customers are like anyone else – they want actionable information that can make their lives safer, more predictable, while reducing costs, risk and time,” said Peter Zornio, chief strategic officer at Emerson Process Management. “This goes beyond the control room and optimizing process performance. They want clarity and certainty of conditions for business-critical decision-making across all aspects of their operations. To achieve this, a more comprehensive network of sensors is needed and that’s what pervasive sensing delivers.”

Emerson is already seeing customers move aggressively to take advantage of pervasive sensing. An Eastern European oil processing plant is currently deploying a full wireless infrastructure to allow the addition of 12,000 pervasive sensing instruments – 60 percent beyond the base of traditional process measurements – in order to better detect energy losses, equipment corrosion and safety releases.
