EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet Controllers

Alicat Scientific adds EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet as options on its line of mass flow, pressure, and liquid instrumentation, expanding its communications protocol offerings.

Integration of Alicat instruments with PLCs

The new industrial automation protocols enable integration of Alicat instruments with PLCs running EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet. Real time data – including mass flow, volumetric flow, pressure, temperature, selected gas calibration, setpoint, and totalised flow of gases – can be read centrally by the PLC and used to manage controllers and meters. Users may change setpoint or gas selection, and issue other commands to the instruments using a DeviceNet or EtherNet/IP enabled PLC or computer.

Monitoring and controlling critical process parameters

With response times, as low as 100 ms, Alicat controllers rapidly and precisely monitor and control critical process parameters in chemical, medical, manufacturing and power industries. In addition to the new EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet protocols, Alicat offers Modbus-RTU and PROFIBUS communication options. Users may also select standard multi-drop RS-232 connectivity or the optional RS-485 for greater data integrity over longer distances. All Alicat instruments are backed by NIST-traceable calibration, comprehensive technical support and a lifetime warranty.
