Variable Area Flow Meters with Foundation Fieldbus Option
Brooks Instrument has released the Foundation Fieldbus option on its variable area flow meters. Foundation Fieldbus is an all-digital, two-way communications technology for plant instrumentation. It enables devices to support better operations and maintenance through expanded access to diagnostics and other digital information. Other benefits include lower engineering and installation costs and optional device-based control-in-the-field.
The variable area Foundation Fieldbus option is available on the MT3809 and MT3750 metal tube products. Designed to integrally mount to these meters, the Foundation Fieldbus option utilizes SMAR transmitter technology and is DeltaV compatible.Reporting from the 2009 Chem Show, Senior Digital Editor Traci Purdum discusses recent acquisitions, product upgrades and lean initiatives with Brooks Instrument.
