Bronkhorst has introduced Powerlink as its tenth on-board fieldbus interface option. The company offers digital flow and pressure meters and controllers in both IP40 and IP65 versions.
Ethernet Powerlink (EPL) is a patent-free, manufacturer-independent and completely software-based communication system that delivers real-time performance. Since the fieldbus is based on Ethernet communication, it can be applied with standard Ethernet cabling and support an unlimited number of nodes, states the company.
With its ‘multi-bus’ concept, the firm offers its customers an extensive choice of ten fieldbus interface options, adds the company. The wide range of digital metering and control devices is applied in many different markets, e.g. the food & beverage and chemical industries, gas and fluid analysis equipment, glass and tool coating processes, testing fuel cells for the automotive industry and in machinery used to produce electronic chips, LED lights and solar cells.
