2.1
Theory of operation
Rosemount™ 5708 delivers accurate volumetric measurement of bulk solids and powders – regardless of
material type, product characteristics, storage silo type, size, bin or container, and harshness of the
storage environment. The product incorporates unique dust-penetrating technology to achieve an
unrivaled degree of process measurement and inventory control.
The Rosemount 5708 include an array of three antennas that generate low frequency acoustic signals
and receive echo signals from the contents of the silo, bin, or other container type. Using these antennas,
the unit measures not only the time/distance of each echoed signal but also its direction and generate a
coordinate of the echo inside the vessel.
The built-in digital signal processor digitally samples and analyses the echoed signals and produces
accurate measurements of the level and volume of the stored contents, and can generate a 3D
visualization position and form of the material within the container for displaying on remote computer
screens.
2.2
Applications
2.2.1
Wide application range
The Rosemount 5708 can measure practically any kind of solid material, stored in a variety of containers,
including large open bins, bulk solid storage rooms, stockpiles and warehouses, mapping loads that
randomly form over time inside silos, and many other challenging applications that were not possible
until now. The Rosemount 5708 can measure ranges of up to 230 ft. (70 m) and generate 3D
visualization of the material surface when installed according to the guidelines within this manual.

Models
The Rosemount 5708 consists of three sub-models: Rosemount 5708L, 5708V, and 5708S. All meet
safety approvals outlined by ATEX, FM and others.
Rosemount 5708L
The model determines the average level of the stored contents and average distance from the
Rosemount 5708 to the surface of the material. The Rosemount 5708L is suitable for narrow silos.
Rosemount 5708V
The Rosemount 5708V models yield highly accurate readings of level and volume. It is appropriate for
vessels of up to 40 ft.ft. (12 m) in diameter and at least twice as high, open bins and stockpiles. It
presents the minimum and maximum Level/Distance measurements along with the calculated average
and volume.
Rosemount 5708S
The Rosemount 5708S models have the capability of generating a 3D visualization of the stored contents
on a remote computer and to be mounted with additional devices in the same vessel. These features are
highly useful for mapping build-up loads that form randomly over time and other irregularities and for
monitoring inventory in large vessels.

November 2017
3.2.1
Reference Manual
Location and positioning guidelines
Choosing the proper location to the unit should consider every aspect of the vessel and contained
materials, including the silo or vessel dimensions, type of material and angle of repose, locations of filling
and emptying points, maximum level of material, internal construction and moving parts and any other
consideration which may possibly affect the performance.
Note
It is strongly recommended to install the unit according to the Locator PC software results provided by
the factory for installation location and positioning. Contact Emerson Customer Support for assistance.
Moisture and water condensation
Use the recommended cable gland and tighten the cable connection. For additional protection against
moisture, lead the connection cable downward in front of the cable entry. Rain and condensation water
can thus drain off. This applies mainly to mounting in areas where moisture is expected (e.g. by cleaning
processes), or on cooled or heated vessels.
Pressure
The process fitting must be sealed in the case of a low/high pressured vessel. Before usage, verify that
the sealing material is resistant to the stored medium. The maximum allowed pressure is indicated on
the type label of the sensor.
Installation location
Choosing the proper installation location for the unit is an important part of the installation process. The
wrong mounting location may result in erroneous measurements or loss of performance.
The following factors must be taken into consideration while choosing the installation position:

Vessel dimensions

Filling and emptying point locations

Internal structure or support
Other restrictions related to the proximity of noisy devices (such as electrical motor) and any other
element which may affect the proper operation of the Rosemount 5708.
Note
When mounting the Rosemount 5708, do not install it near the vessel wall. Installing it near the side wall
will result in bad performance and will not be supported. The Rosemount 5708 cannot be
mounted at a distance less than 24-in. (600 mm) from the wall or filling points.
Installing at the center of the vessel is not recommended, since the perfect symmetry from all sides
toward the Rosemount 5708 may affect the resolution of the echo.
3.2.2
Rosemount 5708 orientation
Mounting direction
Mounting at a specific direction is important. The ridge on the antenna and the notch on the top of the
thread (representing antenna no.1) should be directed toward the center of the vessel.

Inflowing material
Do not mount the Rosemount 5708 in or above the filling stream, or close to the stream, or in the filling
stream. The Rosemount 5708 should be located with a clear line of sight to the top of the material at
high levels, where it will not be affected by the filling stream or the noise it creates.

4.2

For internal grounding, use the power cable ground.

For external grounding, use the earth potential equalization of the plant.
Cable selection
Make sure to select the proper cable for each application.
4.3

For RS-485 communication, use shielded, twisted-pair cables with 120Ω impedance. Make sure the
cables are approved for RS-485 communications.

For 4-20 mA communication, use a low resistance cable and make sure the cables are rated for analog
signals.

For daisy chaining, a single 4-wire cable can be used, both for RS-485 and the
24 Vdc power supply. Make sure only to use a proper cable gaging (AWG).

Use 8-13 mm (20-24 AWG) diameter cables to ensure proper and effective sealing of the cable gland
entry opening.

Select a cable suitable for application (indoor or outdoor) and safety certified according to national
regulations.

Note
The two terminal blocks can be pulled out by unfastening the two side screws to allow for easier wiring
into the terminals. When inserting the terminal blocks back into the head, it is advised to fasten the
screws back into the electronics card in order to avoid a loose connection and or operational problems.
6. Connect the cable wires according to the wiring diagram. See “Different connection methods” on
page 29 for different connection methods.
Note
When connecting the last Rosemount 5708 in the chain, a 120 Ohm resistor must be connected as well.
See Figure 4-6 on page 31.
In any installation of the 5708 whether it is a single unit on a silo or multiple units, it is mandatory to use
termination resistors at the ends of the daisy-chain connection.
One resistor must be on the last scanner on the chain (connected to the +/- terminals of the RS485 and
the other resistor on the other end of the line before converting the RS485 bus to a different
communication protocol such as USB, TCP/IP and others.

Different connection methods
4.5.1
4-20 mA connection
The Rosemount 5708 outputs the % of Volume as set in the configuration and between the Full and
Empty calibration levels. The 4-20mA current output is available through ports 3 and 4 of the left green
terminal block (as shown in Figure 4-3). Ports 3 and 4 are the negative and positive poles, respectively.
Figure 4-3. Port 3 and 4

4.5.2
RS-485 communication
The unit includes an RS-485 communication port. This type of connection allows a PLC/DCS/laptop to
communicate with the Rosemount 5708. It also allows a connection of multiple Rosemount 5708 in a
system on the same RS-485 bus and communication with all devices using a single connection to the
computer running the software.
It is required to use an appropriate cable rated for RS-485, the cable should be of twisted pair, have
120 Ω impedance and shielded. The total length of the cable should not reach 3280 ft (1000 m).
If multiple units of Rosemount 5708 is connected together, all devices must be connected in parallel
mode in the RS-485 ports. Hence, all the '+' (positive) ports of the RS-485 should commonly be
connected and all the '-' (negative) ports of the RS-485 should be connected commonly. The connection
must be of Daisy-Chain type and have at each of the far ends of the chain 120 Ω resistor (such resistor is
provided with the Rosemount 5708), as shown in Figure 4-6.
The communication cable must be grounded at one side. This ground needs to be the same grounding
as the power supply ground.
Each Rosemount 5708 must be configured with a different polling address.

Communication using the Rosemount LinkPro
In all installations, the Rosemount 5708 can be connected to a GSM/GPRS modem in order to transfer
the data over the cellular network. The Rosemount LinkPro should be connected on the RS-485 bus just
like any Rosemount 5708, including cable and resistors as needed. For further details on wiring and
establishing a connection, refer to the Appendix D: Rosemount LinkPro Operating Instructions.
Note
In such communication mode, only one computer running the Rosemount 3DVision software can be
connected to the Rosemount 5708.
4.5.4
TCP/IP communication
The RS-485 bus can be converted to TCP/IP communication. TCP/IP to RS-485 converter installation
should be done as with any Rosemount 5708, including the resistors and daisy-chain
considerations.
For more information on how to convert and transfer the RS-485 data over TCP/IP, see “TCP/IP” on
page 92.
Note
Consult the Emerson Technical Support team for assistance on the proper TCP/IP converter to use.

The Rosemount 3DVision works in conjunction with Rosemount 5708 providing measurement data to a
Windows™ based computer running the programs. The program continuously collects data from the
monitored vessel and generates reports. The reports are used to increase operational efficiency, and
provide the site managers with valuable real-time and historical information for effective decision
making.

Rosemount 3DMultiVision enables usage of a function on groups of vessels, even across multiple sites.
Rosemount 3DMultiVision works in conjunction with the Rosemount 5708 to collect data from all
monitored vessels in all sites and geographic regions, to combine and merge the data, and to generate
and analyze various types of reports.
Basically, both 3DVision and 3DMultiVision have the same capabilities, the one major difference is that
the 3DMultiVision allows the user to view measurements from all vessels in one screen while in the
3DVision, it is possible to view only one vessel at a time.
7.1.1
Server-client architecture
The Rosemount 3DVision/3DMultiVision software is comprised of two components: a server and a
client.
The Rosemount 3DVision Server runs on a designated computer and is connected directly or remotely to
every Rosemount 5708 in a single, local site or in multiple remote sites. The data is stored on the server
computer which generates the reports, collects and stores readings, and transfers the information to all
connected Rosemount 3DVision clients. The server computer should be running and logging at all times.
The Rosemount 3DVision Client is a graphical and interactive program, allowing the user to receive
online measurement data, view a 3D visualization of the material stored in the vessels, add or remove
sites, vessels, and Rosemount 5708, and manage alerts and reports. The Rosemount 3DVision Client
supports several authorization levels of different privileges such as full-management authorized system
administrators, technicians, and view-only operators.
7.1.2
Multi-client
The Rosemount 3DVision software is designed to work in a multi-client environment. Authorized users,
connected to the same LAN or via external connections (WAN), have access to both real-time and
historical data for all devices connected to the server.

The Rosemount 3DVision Client application can connect to multiple Servers simultaneously. This feature
enables the user to view data from multiple plants (without relation to geographical location) in a single
screen. In addition, each Rosemount 3DVision Server can connect and supply information to an
unlimited number of Clients. These features enable high flexibility in inventory management and
amount of personnel reviewing the information.
When more than one client is logged as technician, only one can perform changes to the vessel or the
configuration. If, for example, one user opened the Configuration Wizard, the second user that opens the
wizard will get the following error message:

client.
7.1.4
Network considerations
When installing the Rosemount 3DVision Clients and Servers in a secured network or when it is needed
to access the Rosemount 3DVision Server from an external connection (WAN – Wide Area Network) it is
required to open TCP Ports in Firewalls, Routers or other devices or applications that might block such
communication.
The required TCP Ports are:


7.4.1
Project overview
The Rosemount 3DMultiVision software allows for defining different projects. Each project is organized
in the following hierarchical structure:

Top Level: The project

Second Level: A list of sites

Third Level: A list of vessels located in the site

Fourth Level: A list of devices associated with each vessel
For example, a single project may include multiple sites (or multiple groups of vessels), where each
site/group may contain multiple vessels, with a minimum of one Rosemount 5708 per vessel.

Angle Adapter: In case the antennas are installed in an angle with a Rosemount angle adapter or with
other mechanical solution it is required to adjust the angle in the configuration. By default, the angle is
set to 0°, maximal value is 30°.
Side Margins [m/ft]: Allows tolerance in echo recognition to vessel walls (see figure). Used for creating a
tolerance in case of unknown vessel width/diameter, and when a tolerance is required for detecting
points on the vessel walls
Echo within the tolerance/margin range is transformed to the vessel wall on the X-Y plane and will not be
eliminated in calculation. Default: 1m (3.28 ft.).
Bottom Margins [m/ft]: Allows adding a tolerance in echo recognition from the bottom shape (see
figure). This feature is used for creating a tolerance in the case of unknown vessel dimensions, and when
a tolerance is required for detecting points from the bottom of the vessel. Default: 1 m (3.28 ft.)
Restrain Coefficient [%]: Sets the level of preference of echoes from shorter distances over echoes from
farther distances. 100% = no preference of closer echoes. 0% = total preference of the first echo. Default:
10%.
User False Echoes: Enable/Disable, Sets the algorithm to consider the false echo mapping created
manually by the user (enabled by default). Setting this parameter to Disable causes the device to ignore
the manual false echoes.
Auto False Echoes: Enable/Disable, Sets the algorithm to automatically calculate false echo levels
(enabled by default). Setting this parameter to Disable stops the device from continuously calculating
the false echo levels and keeps the last image of false echoes. If the false echoes are manually reset, the
level is set to 0.


High (7KHz), Med (4.5KHz) and Low (2.3KHz) Frequency beams represent three separate
transmissions which emit signals from all three antennas simultaneously.

30, 90, 150, 210, 270 and 330 degrees directions represent six separate directional transmissions
which improve the algorithm's analysis of the returned echoes. All six transmissions are transmitted in
the same frequency as the Med frequency.

Beams can be enabled or disabled by removing the check box from the Auto Beam Selection box. A
selection of less than three directional beams is not allowed. Only a selection of at least three
consecutive beams is possible, for example: Direction 30, Direction 330 and Direction 270.

Automatic Beams Range: Enabled by default. The beams range is limited according to the range at
which the beam hit the vessel wall. Low frequency beam has wider angle and thus is more limited. High
frequency beam is very narrow and has no limitations. At every possible beam selection the algorithm
makes sure that at least one beam has enough range to 'see' the bottom of the vessel. This limitation is
visualized in the Echo Curve analysis window as the orange vertical line.

Suggested steps for Echo Curve Analysis and False Echo Mapping
1. Measure the distance from the device to the material below it with a second reference, such as a tape
measure equipped with a weight on the end, or a laser. Record the distance measurement for further
reference.
2. Perform the Echo Curve Analysis, see “Echo curve analysis” on page 62. Once completed, the Echo
Curve window opens (same as in “Viewing Echo Curve Analysis” on page 110).
3. Determine if the location of the echoes (vertical lines) are close to the manual measurement taken
earlier. Note that the Rosemount 5708 is taking measurements of multiple points and may not match
up with the manual measurement exactly.
4. Figure 7-74 is an example of the representation of false echo in the Echo Curve window. A manual
measurement and reads 2.5 m. When comparing to the Echo Curve Analysis, echoes appear in the
first 1m. These are clearly false echoes and will need to be mapped out.

perform the false echo mapping, using the mouse left click mark a rectangle around the false echo
you wish to map and release the mouse button. The Echo Mapping window will pop up populating all
relevant fields, Click Start Scanning to initiate the operation.
7. False Echo Mapping can be also found under the Device menu. Manually scan from 0 to beyond the
distance of the false echoes. In this case, the echo will be 1.6 m. Select Manual Scan, set the range of
scan and the level of the threshold, in this case it can be 10000.
8. Select the Start Scanning button.
9. Once the message disappears, the False Echo Mapping process is completed. Wait a couple of
minutes and perform Echo Curve Analysis again to verify the position of the User False Echo line (pink)
in each of the beams the operation was done. Wait at least one damping time before the algorithm
takes effect of the changes and completely ignores the false echoes.
Note
This is a brief run through of the False Echo Mapping process. There are many other situations that may
call for different techniques. An improper mapping of a vessel can lead to a poor performance.

Hardware inventory table
The hardware inventory table lists the following:

All sites included in the project with their names, descriptions, and server names.

For each site, the included vessels are listed with their names.

For each vessel, the devices related to that vessel are listed below it.
The table contains the following properties per the included items: Vessel, Serial Number, Hardware and
Firmware versions of the devices, Polling Address, model, and Connection type, Communication Port,
Chain ID and SCADA ID.
Note
SCADA ID - Each vessel gets its own SCADA ID, and each scanner has a separate SCADA ID. This allows
separating measurements of scanners from the vessel in multi-scanner system.
Chain ID is used in cases where the Rosemount 3DMultiVision is connected to multiple devices over
multiple chains and the user wants to connect to a specific device from the Rosemount 3DVision.
SCADA ID is assigned per vessel and used when connecting a SCADA system to retrieve the registers of
the vessel.

Rosemount System Controller advantages
The Rosemount System Controller features several major functions which bring a synergetic quality to
the multiple devices positioned in the same bin:

Synchronizes device transmissions while preventing mutual device interference

Keeps signal-to-noise ratio performance uncompromised

Takes into account returned echoes from all devices in the system

Generates a complete, merged 3D visualization of the entire bin

Updates and synchronizes 4-20mA outputs of all devices to the overall content percentage, requiring
only one Rosemount 5708 to be connected to the control room.

The accurate, timed inventory monitoring enables material ordering to meet production needs,
avoiding costly emergency fills.

All devices must be daisy-chained with a power supply and RS-485 links to the Rosemount System
Controller. A single 4-20mA pair must be wired from only one of the chained devices to the
PLC/DCS/SCADA/Etc. The 4-20mA may be connected to any of the devices.
The Rosemount System Controller cabinet must be installed indoors, mounted on a wall, and wired to
the devices and a power supply for the computer operation. A single 24 Vdc power supply is
recommended for powering the computer and the devices. Consider power consumption as well. The
computer is rated 40 W with 24 Vdc power supply, and each device is rated 1.5 W with the same power
supply.

Note
A readily accessible disconnect device (such as two-pole) switch or circuit breaker rated minimum
60 Vdc/5A, marked with ON and OFF position and compliant with IEC 60947-1, IEC 60947-3, should be
added externally to the Rosemount System Controller cabinet to disconnect “+” and “-” of the supply
circuit.
Protection provided by the equipment can be impaired if used in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer.
Risk of explosion if battery in PC is replaced by an incorrect type. Replace only with the same type or
manufacturer.
Note

Advanced commissioning steps
When the system is operating and providing measurements, the Rosemount System Controller is used
for running the Rosemount 3DVision Server application that synchronizes and merges the devices and
delivers data to the Rosemount 3DVision Clients. It is also recommended to use the Rosemount System
Controller computer for configuration and adjustments, and for executing the Rosemount 3DVision
installed in it.
The recommended method of operation and steps to be taken during the installation of multiple
Rosemount 5708 in a system are detailed below in chronological order:
Step 1. Rosemount 5708 installation
Make sure all required documentation is available: Application Evaluation Form (AEF) and Vessel
Drawings.
Compare Locator suggestion or mounting location as suggested by Emerson™ with the actual
Rosemount 5708 mounting positions.
Perform manual measurements of the vessel dimensions, and compare results with the
drawings.
Check 24 Vdc input to all devices.
Check RS-485 link between devices and the Rosemount System Controller. Make sure the
resistance between D+ and D- is 60 ±5% Ohm.
Check 4-20 mA connection to the local PLC. Perform current simulation from the device
connected to the PLC.
Power up all devices and check polling addresses.
Set polling addresses, make sure each device has a different polling address and one of the
devices is set with polling address of 00. See Section 6: Configuration - Rosemount 5708V and
5708S for more information.
Write down the polling addresses on the vessel drawings for all devices.
Verify all devices for proper functioning after power up. This can be verified by connecting each
Rosemount 5708 directly to a computer.
Verify sound signal transmission from all devices.
Get material status (level/distance/volume) according to the process manager .
Complete all required information from the process manager in order to complete the
Rosemount 5708 configuration.

Step 2. The Rosemount System Controller
Mount the Rosemount System Controller cabinet indoors. Ensure it is accessible for power
supply, Internet connections and for maintenance.
Verify proper connection of the Rosemount System Controller to a proper power supply.
Connect the provided crossover Ethernet cable (Ethernet port #2) from the Rosemount System
Controller to a local laptop or other computer.
Set the IP Address on the laptop to static IP: 192.168.99.xx (where xx can be any number
between 001 to 255 except 099) and subnet mask 255.255.255.0. Do not forget to restore to
previous state once installation is complete.
Install UltraVNC version 1.0.8.2 on the laptop.
Using the UltraVNC Viewer, take control over the Rosemount System Controller using IP address
192.168.99.99 and password 'admin'. It is recommended to use UltraVNC version 1.0.8.2.
Make sure the Rosemount System Controller is installed with the latest SW version of
Rosemount 3DVision. If it is not, download the required latest versions from the website or
contact the local Emerson representative for further assistance.
Step 3. Rosemount 3DVision and Rosemount 5708 configuration
Execute Rosemount 3DVision and connect to all devices using RS-485 (or TCP/IP, according to
the actual connection) in multiple mode.
If the converter’s serial COM port used for the USB-to-RS-485 converter connection is not found
automatically, locate it manually using the computer Device Manager.
Verify latest firmware version and proper connection for all devices.
Configure the first device and save the configuration file.
Proceed with the configuration for the rest of the devices (or by uploading the first device
configuration and changing the name tag, device location, device horizontal angle, and setting
the full and empty calibration levels accordingly).
Specifically check the full and empty calibration levels.
Perform echo curve analysis for all devices and verify correct readings. Map false echoes, fine
tune and adjust as needed.

Step 4. Rosemount 3DVision Clients
Connect the Rosemount System Controller to the local area network using Ethernet port #1
Request local IT to ensure the following TCP Ports are open and will not be blocked by any
firewall or antivirus in the local network: 22220, 22221, 22222, and 22223.
Configure the network card to a static IP address provided by the local IT. Take note of the
Rosemount System Controller IP address - it will be required for all additional Rosemount
3DVision Clients.
Install Rosemount 3DVision Client on all required computers on the same local area network
(LAN) or consult with the local IT regarding the method of connection.
Establish a connection to the Rosemount 3DVision Server from the Rosemount 3DVision Client
running on the local PC using the Server IP address of the Rosemount System Controller IP
written beforehand.
Ensure the system and the vessel are connected.
