EtherNet/IP connectivity option for Coriolis flowmeters

13 March 2012

Emerson Process Management’s Micro Motion EtherNet/IP Module enables quick and cost effective access to plant-wide networks, providing plant and process data to improve availability and throughput.

An EtherNet/IP Module for Micro Motion Coriolis meter, that is suitable for new or retrofit installations, is compatible with all Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters, and is believed to be 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.

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 Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters to be easily configured remotely via the plant network.
