Multi-parameter analysers now available with fieldbus interfaces

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Knick has introduced its Stratos series analysers with integrated bus interfaces for PROFIBUS DP, PROFIBUS PA or Foundation Fieldbus. The Stratos series is used in applications in the chemical industry, in process engineering, power plant technology, and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors.

Stratos Evo DP, Stratos Pro PA and Stratos Pro FF can be integrated into new and existing host systems (PROFIBUS PA profile 3.02; FOUNDATION Fieldbus ITK 6.1.1). Stratos Pro devices for PROFIBUS PA or Foundation technology are available in versions for both hazardous and non-hazardous areas, while Stratos Evo DP for PROFIBUS DP is only suitable for use outside of hazardous areas.

Settings can be configured directly on the device or with standardised Engineering Tools via Enhanced EDD or DTM. All process and diagnostic data as well as information regarding sensor wear or predictive maintenance is communicated via bus system to the control station. The devices comply with NAMUR NE 107 and support pro-active diagnostics.

Stratos devices are suitable for wall mounting, pole mounting or panel mounting. Pre-assembly of the rear unit is also possible.
