Thyracont Smartline™ now also available with Profinet!

As a pioneer in the field of vacuum metrology, Thyracont Vacuum Instruments extends its well-proven product family Smartline by a further digital interface of cutting-edge technology.
The vacuum transducers of this series measure absolute pressure in the range of 1200 to 5 x 10-10 mbar. In addition to their standard RS485 interface/ 0-10 V, they are optionally available with EtherCAT and now also with Profinet.

Profinet is known to be one of the leading industrial Ethernet networks. Its automatization solutions are independent of the manufacturer. This is why it is used in extensive fields of the manufacturing and process industry, plant engineering as well as research and development.

Given that the technology is based on fast Ethernet, customers particularly benefit from speedy data communication of up to 100 MBit/s full-duplex in real time as well as an integrated 2 port switch (e.g. for line topology). Furthermore, a WEP and FTP server with access to the data system of the module is integrated by default. The WEB server supports HTML forms for interactive and dynamic websites. Hence, direct communication with the vacuum transducer is possible with any PC/tablet from anywhere in the world.

The portfolio of Thyracont, the specialist for vacuum measurement and control technique, ranges from individual vacuum solutions over a broad choice of vacuum components to compact vacuum meters and intelligent transducers.
