ADMAG TI - AXG with EtherNet/IP Communication Functionality

Migration of process control instrumentation communication to industrial Ethernet is well underway in many industries including power generation and transmission, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and water/wastewater. 

Yokogawa is preparing for the expected disruption to legacy Fieldbus communications with the release of our first industrial Ethernet-enabled field instrument, the ADMAG TI AXG with full-featured, mature EtherNet/IP functionality.

Advantages

An advantage of EIP is the capability to handle large amounts of data at speeds of 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, and up to 1500 bytes per packet. The Ethernet bi-directional digital communication performance makes it possible for the field instruments and control devices to be a complete on-line system, superseding the existing analog and/or Fieldbus transmission lines. Other advantages include:

  • Improved instrumentation flexibility and communication capabilities
  • Seamless integration with process automation systems
  • Quick and easy integration with Rockwell Automation PLCs with advanced Add-on Profiles and Add-on Instructions

 

Features

  • Interoperability 
    EtherNet/IP specifications grant the interoperability of the field instruments without preparing designated software for the instrument. 
  • Improved Operation and Monitoring Function 
    An operation authority level setting is available to ensure safety, process data trend display, display backlight flashing (Squawk) function, as well as a data store/restore function with display unit internal memory or microSD card. 
  • Fluid Adhesion Level Diagnosis 
    Constant monitoring of the level of insulating substance on the electrodes makes it possible to determine when maintenance is required. 
  • Stable Measurement 
    Yokogawa's dual-frequency excitation method realizes stable flow measurement even under high flow noise in the fluid with highly concentrated slurry. 
  • Improved Maintainability 
    • Diagnostic functions installed for preventive maintenance of the plant
    • Diagnosis of the device (verification function) executed without demounting from piping
    • Detection of the process condition by monitoring the flow noise and electric conductivity of the fluid
    • Electrode insulation deterioration diagnosis, electrode adhesion diagnosis, and wiring connection diagnosis available
  • Network Structure 
    • Daisy chain - 2 ports are necessary
    • Network ring - 2 ports are necessary (Device Level Ring Support)
    • Network star - only 1 port is necessary; simultaneous use of other port for service or maintenance is possible
  • Web Server
    • Configure and diagnose for maintenance operation
