Dec 13 2017 Read 289 Times
As new Industrial Ethernet communication option, PROFINET I/O is now available for Krohne’s electromagnetic flowmeters with IFC 300 signal converter. This includes all compact and field versions of the Optiflux x300 series (except Optiflux 7000), Waterflex 3300 and Tidalflux 2300.
With PROFINET I/O, all measuring, process and diagnostic information from the meters is available real-time via a single communication channel, allowing for direct and convenient integration of new meters, direct identification of defective devices as well as bidirectional communication and parameter setting. Other advantages include reduced costs for wiring and connecting hardware since PROFINET uses standardised and homogenous Ethernet infrastructure from field devices to control room.
In collaboration with Phoenix Contact, Krohne has published the whitepaper “Ethernet-Based PROFINET Integration of Field Instruments in the Water and Waste Water Industry”. The free whitepaper explains the background of PROFINET and its benefits in more detail and shows different network topologies.
