Industrial devices are getting increasingly connected, in-line with trends such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0. This has led to a huge increase in demand for industrial interfaces, both fieldbuses and Ethernet-based interfaces. They allow ease of integration within complex installations, and opens up new vistas for ease of service, e.g. remote diagnosis and repair. They make scalable architectures possible and decrease costs for production and data monitoring.
Axetris MEMS-based mass flow controllers – providing high-performance gas flow control to OEMs since many years – will soon be available with a PROFINET interface.
PROFINET, a well-established standard for industrial networking in automation, connects various devices and systems and will allow you to easily integrate the MFCs as PROFINET IO device in your applications, e.g. thin film applications, bioreactor process control, analytical instrumentation etc.
