Product Identity

Rosemount 3051C/T/L, 2051, 2088 and 2090 Transmitters with HART 4- 20mA output electronics.

Description

Rosemount Inc. has identified a potential safety concern affecting the reliability of Rosemount 3051C/T/L, 2051, 2088 and 2090 Transmitters with HART 4-20mA output electronics which were manufactured from January 17 to February 1, 2012. The potential safety concern was caused by the use of a non-approved chemical in the manufacture of circuit cards for these products at one of Rosemount’s supplier facilities. Rosemount’s quality monitoring processes identified this issue. As a direct result both production and shipping were immediately stopped as soon as the issue was identified.

Analysis by Rosemount has determined this issue may result in the degradation or loss of the 4-20mA signal in a small percentage of Rosemount 3051C/T/L, 2051, 2088 or 2090 Transmitters that were produced with these circuit cards. [Note: This issue does not impact transmitters with low power (voltage), Fieldbus or Profibus outputs.]
