BOULDER, COLO (March 7, 2012) -- Emerson Process Management has introduced an Ethernet/IP™ Module for Micro Motion Coriolis meters. Suitable for new or retrofit installations, the EtherNet/IP Module is compatible with all Micro Motion flowmeters, and is the only Coriolis EtherNet/IP solution for hazardous areas. Access to the multivariable data enabled by the module allows for increased productivity and fast process insight with control system access to flow, density, temperature and many other parameters.
Compact and easy to install in less than 30 minutes, the EtherNet/IP Module can be mounted in the control cabinet, removing the need to run Ethernet cabling out to the field. The module web browser provides network access to a powerful configuration and diagnostic interface, enabling a full range of remote activities. This includes Smart Meter Verification, which determines Coriolis meter performance without stopping the process or interrupting the flow.
The new module enables quick and cost effective access to the growing number of EtherNet/IP plant-wide networks and adds to the range of communication interface options available with Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters. These include DeviceNet, PROFIBUS DP, Modbus, Foundation fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA in addition to the traditional interfaces of 4-20 mA frequency and HART®.
The EtherNet/IP Module is suitable for DIN Rail mounting and is ODVA Certified. The software provided enables the Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeter to be easily configured remotely via the plant network.
EtherNet/IP is an open, industry-standard networking technology, supporting a wide range of devices including motor starters, sensors, controllers and HMI devices. EtherNet/IP supports non-industrial and industrial communications on a common network infrastructure.
