January 15, 2014

Endress+Hauser Liquiline transmitterThe Liquiline CM44x multichannel transmitter from Endress+Hauser now features Ethernet/IP connectivity for easy, seamless integration with the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx Process Automation System. The transmitter can be used for process monitoring in the water, wastewater, chemical, power and other industries and features an integrated Web server that allows the operator to remotely view diagnostic data, perform configuration or access device parameters via any Web browser. Data can be securely accessed and maintenance functions can be performed via Endress+Hauser’s FieldCare asset management system. Thanks to Endress+Hauser’s Memosens® technology, customers can now use EtherNet/IP and one CM44 transmitter to access many parameters and accept inputs down to the sensor level including sensor condition and diagnostics. They also have the ability to configure up to eight Memosens digital sensors via remote access, including nitrate, spectral absorption coefficient (SAC), pH, ORP, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, free-chlorine and ion selective electrode sensors. The modular four-wire transmitter is available in one to eight-channel versions and can be expanded at any time, and users can easily swap or mix and match any combination of sensors.
