Strong competition for fieldbus systems is Industrial Ethernet.
The strongest representatives here are Ethernet-IP, PROFINET, Modbus-TCP and
EtherCAT. Compared to conventional fieldbus systems, Industrial Ethernet offers
additional opportunities in large and highly automated factories:

– Real-time data can be transmitted virtually simultaneously
over a common medium.

– Integration of almost unlimited number of nodes with equal
rights is possible.

– Large-area networks and efficient transmission of extensive
data quantities can be realized.

– Various transmission media can be combined.

Burkert broad MFC/MFM product range offers the adequate
solution for all industry requirements: analogue and digital communication
based on RS232 / RS485, as well as all standard fieldbus interfaces and
industrial Ethernet standards.

Mass Flow Controllers/Mass Flow Metres are
compact devices that control the mass flow of gases. They control a pre-set
flow rate reference value regardless of disturbance variables such as
pressure fluctuations or temporary occurring flow resistances, e. g. as a result
of filter dirt. MFC/MFMs consist of the following components: flow sensor,
electronics (with signal processing, regulation and valve control functions)
and a solenoid control valve as an actuator. The reference value setting is
made electrically via analogue signal or fieldbus. With its easy installation, the
compact structure of the MFC/MFMs ensures the convenient operation of a
complete (closed) control loop.
