Description

Emerson Process Management has identified a potential safety concern affecting the reliability of Rosemount models; 2051T, 3051C, 3051D, 3051G, 3051T with a display meter option code (M4 – LCD Display with Local Operator Interface or M5 – LCD Display) which were shipped from January 20, 2015 to January 22, 2015.

Also, the cemented joint has the potential to allow environmental exposure to the transmitter electronics.
