The manufacturer’s line of mass flow meters and mass flow controllers is now available with digital communications capabilities. Now you can choose between Profibus or RS485, which is delivered in a small field installable module that mounts directly on top of the flowmeter. The flowmeter with Profibus supports both DPV0 cyclic and DPV1 acyclic data communication. It has a standard 9-pin female D-connector for signal and an M5 connector for power. Baud rates from 9600 up to 12M are supported, which are automatically detected. The flowmeter with RS485 has a physical layer with proprietary “S-Protocol” based on HART® command set. It has a standard 15-pin male D-connector for signal and power. Baud rates from 1200 to 38.4K are supported with a top accessible rotary switch for baud rate selection.
