Emerson Process Management’s Micro Motion Model 5700 transmitter has been upgraded with a native Ethernet connection designed to improve connectivity and functionality for easier access to measurement information. The native Ethernet upgrade includes dual redundant Ethernet ports, directly integrated in the device with no need for extra converters or adapters. The dual port architecture means multiple devices can be installed in a variety of configurations, minimizing wiring and switch needs for space and cost savings. The transmitter also incorporates a configurable I/O channel that can be used as a discrete input or set to a mA, frequency, or discrete output. This enables powerful application options with minimal equipment.

The Ethernet upgrade is available with multiple protocol choices including EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, and Profinet. To speed integration and connection with Ethernet/IP systems, the transmitter contains an electronic data sheet (EDS) file for access to instrument information with little to no manual setup. This also enables automatic add-on profile (AOP) generation for quick and powerful system integration.
