ABB launches flowmeters with faster and more reliable data transmission for process industries

Incorporating ProfiNet into ABB’s CoriolisMaster and ProcessMaster flowmeters enables real-time exchange of data.

ABB has recently launched CoriolisMaster and ProcessMaster flowmeters that can be powered over the same ethernet cable used for data transmission, eliminating the need for separate cabling. The new feature, according to the press release, reduces installation time and cost, and increases the speed and reliability of data transmission.

One of the key challenges facing customers in process industries is the need to reduce the complexity and cost of installation and operations of field instruments, infrastructure and systems. The new ABB CoriolisMaster and ProcessMaster flowmeters featuring ProfiNet with Power Over Ethernet address this challenge by providing a single-cable solution, according to ABB.

ProfiNet is a protocol utilized in the field of Operational Technology (OT) that operates at the application layer, according to the press release. Incorporating ProfiNet into ABB’s CoriolisMaster and ProcessMaster flowmeters enables real-time exchange of data, and monitoring of alarms and diagnostics, ABB notes. It also allows for diverse configurations to ensure reliable and efficient communication between the flowmeters and across both local area and wide area networks (LAN & WAN).

According to the press release, ABB’s CoriolisMaster and ProcessMaster with ProfiNet ensure reliable data transmission by providing a stable and consistent power supply. This helps to reduce the risk of data transmission errors caused by power fluctuations or interruptions and ensures that the data received by the control system is accurate and reliable. Transmitted in real time, information on flow rates and densities is always up-to-date.

The built-in webserver minimizes time spent for set-up and parameterization of the flowmeters significantly, and according to ABB, users get access to all parameters, such as measurement range, units, IO configuration, verification and diagnostic settings as well as a data-logging function.
