23 End-User Field Trials - Oxea

24 End-User Field Trials – Dan Crainer & Oxea
Puffer-Sweiven account manager for Fisher Controls products at Oxea, Bay City Location. Oxea operations: Oxea Chemicals, Bay City Site is the largest production facility in North America. The site produces wide range of Oxo intermediates and derivative products. Emerson Wireless at Oxea: Oxea has installed Emerson Wireless products in one production unit and has several additional projects in different stages of execution. Vibration Energy Harvester – Value Proposition: The “Vibration Energy Harvester” allows for use of wireless field instruments with lower cost power supply than standard Emerson power module. Benefits Alternate power options vs. batteries only Faster update rates while minimizing/eliminating battery changes Reduced overall maintenance logistics & costs

25 Pictures and Field Trial Overview

26 Sherri Law Senior Instrument & Electrical Engineer - Oxea
Oxea Quotes: “Vibration Energy Harvesting offers Oxea a cost effective way to utilize the fastest update rates available on any wireless instrument we choose without the costs and maintenance logistics of frequent battery replacements. This is an obvious aid in process optimization and we see it as the next step towards wireless control”. “Low maintenance costs are critical to the operations of a small facility with limited resources. Vibration Energy Harvesting is seen as a means to reduce maintenance costs due to fewer battery replacements, reduction in stock and lower battery disposal costs. These benefits will also increase as we consider new uses for wireless devices in more remote plant locations”. Sherri Law Senior Instrument & Electrical Engineer - Oxea

27 End-User Field Trials - Firestone

28 End-User Field Trials – Tim Bonnin & Firestone Polymer
Senior Instrument Representative; Beaumont, TX Firestone Polymer operations: Firestone Polymers supplies synthetic rubber, thermoplastic elastomers and impact modifiers to rubber, plastics, adhesive and asphalt markets around the world Emerson Wireless at Firestone Polymer Firestone was an early adapter of Wireless HART. They have employed WiHart devices throughout the plant and continue to look to wireless instruments as reliable and inexpensive monitoring solutions Vibration Energy Harvester – Value Proposition The Vibration Energy Harvesters have performed exactly as advertised. The Harvesters has been a welcomed addition to the wireless network that is established at Firestone and gives greater confidence that signal loss due to power interruption will not be a problem. Faster update rates while minimizing/eliminating battery changes is a huge positive for Firestone. The use of the Vibration Energy Harvester should result in reduced overall maintenance logistics and costs

29 Pictures and Field Trial Overview

30 Firestone Polymer Quotes:
“Firestone Polymers has benefited from being one of the facilities chosen to host the beta testing of Perpetuum Vibration Energy Harvesters”.  “We have learned that the concept is useful in more ways than one”. “The cost savings that are realized by eliminating the continued purchase and replacement of batteries for wireless instruments”. “Harvesting technology can lead to an even greater reduction in cost for the prioritized wireless instruments in our facility. These instruments require the fastest update rates”. “Fast update rates drastically reduce battery life, it would be prudent to target these wireless instruments as a first justification toward putting this technology to work for our benefit”. Christopher Julian Senior Instrument & Electrical Engineer - Firestone Polymer

31 Key Points Business Case: Maintenance: Impact on Battery Life:
Overloaded and diminishing available skilled resources Batteries present disruptive & unnecessary maintenance logistics VEH can minimize or eliminate disruptive logistics Impact on Battery Life: Emerson 3051S: (Wireless Transmitter with Greatest Power Profile) Battery changes 4 sec Update Rate for life of equipment Battery life increased from 1 to sec Update Rate Business Case: Close to pay back on 1st avoided battery change (on easy assets) Pay back on 1st avoided change on more difficult assets

32 VEH connected to multi-meter
Installation Simple Site Walk Down Logistics Use Power Puck to determine optimal VEH Frequency Unit. Measure the current with a multi-meter to verify the exact current that will be supplied to transmitter when connected to VEH. VEH connected to multi-meter Power Puck
