Micro Motion EtherNet/IP Module enables quick and cost-effective access to plant-wide networks, providing plant and process data to improve availability and throughput.Emerson Process Management has introduced an EtherNet/IP Module for Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters. The company says the new module is suitable for new or retrofit installations, is compatible with all Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters, and is the only Coriolis EtherNet/IP solution for hazardous areas. Access to the multivariable data enabled by the module allows for increased productivity and fast process insight with control system access to flow, density, temperature, and many other parameters.

Compact and easy to install in less than 30 minutes, the EtherNet/IP Module can be mounted in the control cabinet, removing the need to run Ethernet cabling out to the field. The module web browser provides network access to a powerful configuration and diagnostic interface, enabling a full range of remote activities. This includes running Smart Meter Verification, which determines Coriolis meter performance without stopping the process or interrupting the flow.

The new module enables quick and cost-effective access to the growing number of EtherNet/IP plant networks and adds to the range of communication interface options available with Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters. These include DeviceNet, Profibus DP, Modbus, Foundation fieldbus, Profibus PA and 4-20 mA with HART. The enclosure is suitable for DIN rail mounting and is ODVA certified. The software provided enables easy flowmeter configuration remotely via the plant network.
