HATFIELD, Pa. Brooks Instrument, a world leader in advanced flow, pressure, vacuum and vapor delivery solutions, has added the EtherNet/IP™ digital communications interface to its industry-leading SLA5800 Series mass flow controller (MFC) family of products.
Ideal for applications in life science, chemical/petrochemical research, laboratory, analytical, fuel cell, thin film and other segments, the SLA5800 Series features high accuracy, industry-leading zero stability and high repeatability. Available with advanced, configurable multi-gas/multi-range capabilities, the SLA5800 Series offers a better zero-drift specification compared to competitive products and is proven to maintain factory calibration and accuracy longer.
Integrating the high-speed digital EtherNet/IP interface to the SLA5800 Series MFC platform increases the controller’s functionality by making it easier for OEMs and end users to leverage real-time, rich process data with high-speed digital communications.
“We continue to enhance the value and performance of our proven SLA5800 Series MFCs with additional high-speed communication protocols that leading end-users and equipment manufacturers are increasingly using for their next-generation systems,” said Steve Kannengieszer, Director of Product Marketing. “By integrating EtherNet/IP directly in the MFC, we’ve kept our device footprint the same rather than taking up valuable equipment space with an add-on adapter.”
The addition of the EtherNet/IP interface enhances the SLA5800 Series in several ways:
