在2006年12月，艾默生向Wintec赠予了最新的Micro Motion® ELITE™科利奥利流量计。这款仪器可直接测量块的流速，排除了补偿温度改变、粘性和压力条件的需要。
另外的一些艾默生产品也普遍地应用在Wintec实验室中，包括：拥有基金会现场总线的Rosemount压力传送器、流量计、手动通信程序、Micro Motion块流动和体积密度传感器；Rosemount Analytical分析器；装有Fisher® FIELDVUE®数字阀控制器的Baumann控制阀。

Emerson‘s PlantWeb® digital architecture provides ideal environment for industrial measurement and control curriculum[/b]
AUSTIN, TEXAS （April 4, 2007） - Emerson Process Management products and technologies have been selected to power the Industrial Measurement and Control （IMC） training laboratory at New Zealand‘s renowned Waikato Institute of Technology （Wintec）. The college is the only provider of IMC training at Level 4 and Level 5 of the New Zealand Qualifications Authority National Framework.
"As the only institute in New Zealand that offers this program, it is essential that our facilities are equipped with the latest technology solutions," said Simon White, principal tutor and IMC program leader at Wintec. "We are very proud of our laboratory and truly value the Emerson equipment it houses."
Wintec, which has been offering IMC courses for just over 20 years, recently made a significant investment in new process control equipment with Emerson as the principal supplier. The institute‘s DeltaV™ digital automation system was upgraded to include six engineering workstations with the latest DeltaV software, part of Emerson‘s PlantWeb® digital plant architecture. Other equipment from Emerson includes Rosemount® differential pressure transmitters, magnetic flowmeters, and pH and conductivity transmitters.
"It is important that our students have access to reliable, state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the skills that they obtain in our laboratory are as close as possible to what they will be exposed to in the industry," added White. "We recognize that Emerson is the market leader, which makes Emerson products the perfect choice for our learning environment."
In December 2006, Emerson donated the latest Micro Motion® ELITE™ Coriolis flowmeter to the Wintec technology laboratory. This instrument measures the mass flow rate directly, which eliminates the need to compensate for changing temperature, viscosity and pressure conditions.
"We are truly grateful to Emerson for demonstrating their support through the kind donation of this state-of-the-art flowmeter," said White. "By mounting it on a standard panel, it is easily connected to the different processes within the lab and all other flow measuring equipment can now be referenced to this standard instrument."
Additional Emerson products currently in use in the Wintec laboratory include: Rosemount pressure transmitters with FOUNDATION fieldbus, flowmeters, and a hand-held field communicator; Micro Motion mass flow and volume density sensors; Rosemount Analytical analyzers; and a Baumann control valve equipped with a Fisher® FIELDVUE® digital valve controller.
"Equipped with this latest-technology laboratory, Wintec provides the ideal environment for students to develop skills in fault analysis, design and maintenance of equipment," said Steve Baillie, manager, Emerson Process Management New Zealand. "Emerson is proud to contribute to the advancement of this valuable vocational program."
The Waikato Institute of Technology provides high quality, vocational skills based on professional education and training. Included in its industry-focused curriculum is the National Certificate Industrial Measurement and Control （Level 4）, a two-year, full time program offering by distance learning and block courses. The course is suitable for people seeking a career in the installation, commissioning and maintenance of industrial control and instrumentation equipment for use in a wide range of industrial applications and includes on-job assessment.
