Bronkhorst High-Tech’s mass flow meters and controllers, and digital pressure controllers can now enjoy EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP interface options.

EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP interfaces are based on Ethernet communication, much like previously developed EtherCAT and Profinet communication protocols. They can thusly be applied with standard Ethernet cabling and support an unlimited number of nodes.

First presented by the Open Device Vendor Association in 2000, EtherNet/IP (Ethernet Industrial Protocol) is an open communication protocol that adapts Common Industrial Protocol to the standard Ethernet, and is designed for use in industrial environments and time-critical applications.

The Modbus-TCP protocol is 100 per cent compatible with Ethernet, and is used for data exchange between I/O controllers and I/O devices (slaves / field devices). Modbus-TCP adapts the widely-used Modbus protocol to TCP/IP with Ethernet as the common medium.

Bronkhorst instruments can only be implemented in Modbus-TCP systems as slave devices.

With years of fieldbus communication experience, Bronkhorst offers clients an extensive choice of nine fieldbus interface options via their “multi-bus” concept.

Their wide range of digital metering and control devices can be applied in many different industries, from food and beverage to chemical, from gas and fluid analysis to glass and tool coating processes, from testing fuel cells in the automotive industry to machinery used to produce electronic chips, LED lights and solar cells.
