This data-acquisition system is updated for EtherNet/IP

| By Chemical Engineering



The Memograph M RSG45 Data Manager (photo), a data-acquisition system for small process-control applications, now features Ethernet/IP capability, providing a cost-effective way to integrate legacy 4–20-mA, RTD, thermocouple and HART-based instruments into a modern control system. The RSG45 can quickly integrate up to 20 individual instruments into an EtherNet/IP environment using a single cable. The EtherNet/IP connection also allows a plant to control batch start and stop activities from the control room. The RSG45 is able to accept up to 14 discrete and 20 universal/HART analog inputs from process sensors. It can then display this sensor data on its 7-in. multicolor screen, record the data internally, perform calculations and alarm checks and transmit the data to a PC or any control system. — Endress+ Hauser Inc., Greenwood, Ind.
