Bronkhorst is pleased to present Powerlink as its tenth on-board fieldbus interface option. This confirms the company’s reputation as a most versatile supplier of digital flow and pressure meters and controllers, available in both IP40 and IP65 versions.

Ethernet Powerlink (EPL) is a patent-free, manufacturer-independent and completely software-based communication system that delivers real-time performance. Since the fieldbus is based on Ethernet communication, it can be applied with standard Ethernet cabling and support an unlimited number of nodes.

Bronkhorst has many years of experience with fieldbus communication, and with its multi-bus concept, the company now offers customers an extensive choice of ten fieldbus interface options. The wide range of digital metering and control devices is applied in many different markets, e.g. the food, beverage and chemical industries, gas and fluid analysis equipment, glass and tool coating processes, testing fuel cells for the automotive industry, and in machinery used to produce electronic chips, LED lights and solar cells.

Mecosa is the sole agent for Bronkhorst High-Tech B.V. in South Africa.
