|PROCESS IN FIELDBUS
ProcessMaster 300 electromagnetic flowmeters provide Foundation fieldbus connectivity, and include a powerful, easy-to-use transmitter that supplies the appropriate output signal for the application. The flowmeter comes in many sizes and with a wide range of liners and electrodes. It has a short delivery time and includes simple and clear documentation.
ABB Measurement Products
Liquiline CM44x multichannel transmitters have EtherNet/IP connectivity. They feature a built-in web server to remotely view diagnostic data and access device parameters via any browser. Users can configure up to eight digital sensors, including nitrate, spectral absorption coefficient (SAC), pH, ORP, conductivity and ion-selective electrode sensors.
|MEASURE GAS FLOW
ST100 Series flowmeters measure flow rate, totalized flow, temperature and, optionally, pressure for any air/gas application, including pure gases and dry or moist gases. They deliver measurements over Foundation fieldbus to support plant, process control, leak detection, emissions monitoring and reporting applications. Flow ranges from 0.25 sfpm to 1,000 sfpm with an accuracy of ±0.75% of reading and ±0.5% of full scale.

|COMPACT ETHERNET MODULES
Ethernet I/O modules XT1230 and XT1240 provide a 16-channel interface for single-ended, analog current or voltage input signals with EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, Profinet or i2o peer-to-peer communication. Their compact design has dual Ethernet ports, removable front-facing terminal blocks, DIN-rail power bus support, and temperature range from -40 to 70 °C with noise immunity.
|CONTROL VALVES REMOTELY
ValveLink Mobile version 4.0 software comes pre-installed on intrinsically safe 475 Field Communicators, letting operators configure, calibrate, validate, diagnose and troubleshoot control valves on a Foundation fieldbus network in the field. It has an intuitive interface with touchscreen icons. Troubleshooting guides in the software help boost plant uptime.

|ANY BUS TRANSFER WILL DO
Along with Profinet and EtherNet/IP, Anybus CompactCom 40-series networking interfaces for fieldbus and industrial Ethernet include the Powerlink protocol. They provide high-speed, accurate communication between the host device and Powerlink, transferring 1,500 bytes of process data in each direction over each cycle with data latency of less than 15 µs.
Eclipse Model 706 transmitter provides Foundation fieldbus connectivity. According to the company, the unit is the first guided wave radar (GWR) level transmitter to pass Fieldbus Foundation testing using its interoperability test kit ITK 6.1.1. The 4-20 mA device features an improved signal-to-noise ratio and is Namur NE107-compliant. It comes with a supply of overfill-capable probes.
FieldBarrier R4D0-FB-IA isolated device coupler for Foundation fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA instruments connects field devices through intrinsically safe spurs to the trunk. It offers advanced fault protection, and diagnostics detect installation quality issues. Internal components are connected without wiring, and critical components are designed with redundancy or monitored for degradation. Pepperl+Fuchs
|EASY FLOWMETER DATA ACCESS
QuadraTherm 640i and 780i thermal mass flowmeters work on Foundation fieldbus H1 networks, making them suitable for industrial applications including oil and gas, and provide users easy access to all relevant data available in their flowmeter. They provide capabilities including a function block structure for true distributed control and a network hierarchy for building in subsystems.
Trunkguard TG200 and TG300 series fieldbus device couplers provide a fast and easy way to connect multiple fieldbus devices to a main fieldbus trunk in Foundation fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA networks. Trunkguard provides fully automatic segment termination. The patented technology prevents fieldbus segment failure from under- or over-termination, a major problem in fieldbus startups.
|FIELDBUS DIAGNOSTICS ANYWHERE
Field Diagnostics Module (FDM) measures standard Foundation fieldbus diagnostic data in the field for quicker preventive action. Long cable runs and associated signal degradation do not affect accurate electrical measurements. Instead, data is transmitted back to the control room in real time where operators can manage alarms without maintenance permits or process interruption.
Invensys Foxboro’s Intelligent Marshalling solution features the Universal Fieldbus Module, a per-channel, configurable I/O module that supports a variety of analog and digital signal types. Each channel is software-configurable on a per-point basis with no extra hardware required. All configurations can be done at the workstation, which all but eliminates traditional marshalling panels.
