Emerson introduces software tool for customers using Modbus with Micro Motion® Coriolis meters

Innovative new Modbus interface tool simplifies Modbus programming and commissioning of Coriolis meters


BOULDER, Colo. (March 23, 2009) – Emerson Process Management now offers a complimentary, innovative new support utility for all Micro Motion customers who use Modbus protocol to interact with their Coriolis meters. The Modbus Interface Tool is a PC-based data delivery system that replaces more than fifty pages of Modbus register data in tabular form with a simple point-and-click spreadsheet presentation.  

The Modbus Interface Tool allows users to select, sort, and group register data by Coriolis device, Modbus address, datatype, or keyword, using familiar spreadsheet functions.  The tool greatly simplifies device commissioning as communications programmers can now dynamically select and organize the information they need, rather than having to scan multiple pages of detailed data in small print.   

Control systems based on digital protocols, such as Modbus, are typically more accurate and provide faster response than analog control systems.  As a result, digital control systems are increasing in popularity and are generally preferred by OEMs and systems integrators. The Modbus digital interface, implemented by a significant number of Micro Motion users, provides a complete window into the Coriolis device, including configuration, operations, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
