Measuring technology and communication come together #SPS/IPC

At SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2010, Krohne is to present examples of how to integrate state-of-the-art process measuring technology into communication systems. Representative of the entire portfolio, a few functional models will be used to demonstrate how measuring devices can be connected to fieldbus communication interfaces such as Profibus, HART and Foundation Fieldbus. Of particular interest to users is that not only can the measuring devices transfer flow, level and temperature values, but also information from the integrated diagnostic functions. For example, an electromagnetic flowmeter in the OPTIFLUX family can detect application errors, report a measurement error or the need for maintenance and indicate when operating outside of specifications.

The wireless remote transmission of readings via GSM network will also be demonstrated live at the stand: a completely battery-operated and thus self-sufficient measuring station, consisting of the WATERFLUX water meter and a GSM transmitter, transmits the values via the mobile network to a PC on site. This solution allows even remote measuring stations without power to be connected to a control system.

SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2010 is scheduled for  Nuremberg 23 - 25 November 2010
