Using FLOWBUS with FlowSuite

FLOW-BUS Fieldbus designed by Bronkhorst; based on RS485 technology for digital communication between multiple digital devices. This communication protocol offers the possibility of host-control by PC (i.e. FlowSuite™, LabVIEW™, Python™). FlowSuite™ a Windows PC application for monitoring and service purposes on Bronkhorst digital instruments via a single interface or with multiple windows for multiple devices. FlowSuite™ offers good insight into the dynamic behavior of Bronkhorst flow meters and controllers. Advantages of using FlowSuite: Allows adjustment of controller, alarm, and counter settings Built-in trend chart graph for 4 devices, each device can trend up to 7 inputs. Measured data in a

Allen Bradley Micrologix and PanelView vs Horner XL7

Example of a Cost Comparison Between Horner and Allen Bradley There are endless applications for small programmable logic controllers, and they typically will result in increased product quality, increased safety, and better process oversight and data. They also almost always result in less operator intervention and workload. This comparison will examine the costs of hardware and software for a relatively small application which requires a local human-machine touch interface. Some of the basic assumptions are: Small number of IO with some analog Medium/small size touchscreen interface Ethernet and Modbus connectivity Required Programming Software All prices are List Conclusion Including the

Bronkhorst Mass Flow Controllers are Critical within Process Industries

Why Bronkhorst Mass Flow Controllers are important within process industries Bronkhorst Mass flow controllers play a vital role because measurement of flow, whether it is a liquid or gas, is commonly a critical parameter in many processes. In most operations, it is important to know that the right fluid is at the right place at the right time. Some critical applications require the stability to conduct accurate flow measurements to ensure product quality. Health & Safety is always an important factor when working with liquids and gases, investment in ensuring your team can operate in a safe and productive environment

An application note about using our Kayden switch for pump monitoring and protection

What is needed in this situation? A rugged and reliable means for pump protection and monitoring. The pump (motor) when the inlet is dry / empty. Then automatically re-start the pump when the flow of the process material is restored. There is also a need for an alarm when blockages occur in the pipeline. Another need is to react to changes in the flow rate & temperature if desired. What is the problem? It is difficult to find one device that can be configured for a wide variety of flow conditions and will not require frequent maintenance To perform well
