Mass flowmeters and controllers with Profinet interface

April 2016 Mass Measurement

Bronkhorst High-Tech now offers a Profinet fieldbus interface on its mass flowmeters and controllers for gases and liquids, as well as on its digital pressure controllers. Profinet is said to be the new standard for industrial automation, offering major savings in configuration and commissioning. With a comprehensive scope of functions, its flexible architecture enables innovative, flexible and cost-saving machine automation; maximum performance and precision; flexible address assignment; modular design; fast commissioning thanks to open access and defined interfaces; and optimal diagnostics on devices and networks.

Bronkhorst has many years of experience in fieldbus communication. The company’s multi-bus concept brings flexibility to its range of digital instruments, which are equipped with interface boards for DeviceNet, Profibus, Modbus, EtherCAT or Flow-Bus. Bronkhorst’s broad portfolio of digital metering and control devices has a wide range of applications. Examples include the food and beverage industry; the chemical industry; gas and fluid analysis equipment; glass and tool coating processes; testing of fuel cells in the automotive industry and in machinery used to produce electronic chips; LED lights; and solar cells.
