We make Ethernet Easy
When we say “We make Ethernet easy”, we are talking about controlling the complexity of high-performance Ethernet networks. Therefore, we have consistently designed our products with the knowledge, the tools, and the skills of the user in mind, the automation specialist.
Complete flexibility: Terminal blocks with different connection technologies can be freely combined.
Bridging and testing option with double function shaft.
Additional test option with integrated test points, eliminating the need for removing conductors or bridges.
HART over Wireless
Consistent System Documentation
In large systems in the process industry, a huge amount of resources are dedicated to keeping system documentation up to date. Maintenance employees or external companies regularly inspect the production plant and document the changes identified through so-called red entries. The transfer of these red entries from paper lists to a P&I flow diagram often harbors the risk of transfer errors. As a result, manufacturer information cannot be assessed in the event of device discontinuation or product changes. Due to the constantly changing field device inventory in the production plant and the partially missing information, an inventory cannot be planned, which significantly complicates any necessary device replacements.
Digital system transparency
80% of systems in the process industry are equipped with digital, HART-compatible field devices. However, only 5% of these use digital signals.
We make it possible for you to retroactively tap HART data and provide the necessary field data in OPC UA format with no adverse effects. With this additional smart field device data, you benefit from digital system transparency – the so-called digital twin. With this transparency, maintenance, upkeep, and availability can be improved significantly.
Digital twin in process automation. Easy comparison between As Planned and As Built
- Current, real data from the plant is available at all times with automatic as-built documentation.
- Tours for manually recording the installed HART field devices are no longer necessary due to the field devices being continuously connected.
- Rapid troubleshooting and the avoidance of downtimes in the event of manufacturer recalls, changes, or discontinuations with optimized inventories.
Fast and universal access to all sensors and data at the field and machine levels.
The ability to develop new business models, such as for sensor manufacturers or system integrators.
Scalable and customizable data collection solutions for greenfield and brownfield applications.
