Alicat Scientific, widely known flow meter & controller company, has issued a Press Release on the company’s communications protocol offerings expansion.
The company states that “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 totalized flow of gases–can be read centrally by the PLC and used to manage Alicat controllers and meters. Users may change setpoint or gas selection, and issue other commands to Alicat instruments using a DeviceNet or EtherNet/IP enabled PLC or computer.”
Additionally to the new EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet protocols, the flow meter company also offers Modbus-RTU and PROFIBUS communication options. Read the Press Release in full.
