The Promag 53 electromagnetic flowmeter with EtherNet/IP connectivity integrates with the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx process automation system. The flowmeter measures electrically conductive liquids
(> 5 µS/cm) for applications in food and beverage, water and wastewater, and other process industries.
The flowmeter features an integrated Web server that allows authorized users to remotely view flow data, conduct diagnostics, configure the flowmeter, or perform process optimization. By using EtherNet/IP, up to 10 variables can be configured, including volume flow, calculated mass flow and totalized flow for remote access.
Traditionally, devices measuring and control-ling process variables rely on a process instrumentation network to transfer data, while other devices within the plant work on a completely different network. By improving this complex multitier networking strategy with one standard network architecture, namely EtherNet/IP, users have better access to real-time information.
The flowmeter has a measuring accuracy is ±0.2% or ±2 millimeters per second, and repeatability is ±0.1% or ± 0.5 mm per second.
