Measuring and control unit

CANopen communication with sensors

Prominent (Germany) has introduced the Dulcometer Dialog DACa measuring and control unit. It replaces the D1Ca and D2Ca measuring and control units.

THE PRODUCT IS DESIGNED FOR CONTINOUS measurement and control of liquid analysis parameters. It was developed for industry, water treatment, and environmental technology. Depending on the application, the controller can be configured for one or two measuring channels. Up to 14 selectable variables are linkable per channel.

With sensors and actuators, the measuring and control unit communicates via CANopen. The device closes the gap between the Dulcotest CANopen sensors (e.g. chlorite sensors) and the CANopen dose pumps. As an interface to the control level, the user can choose Profibus-DP, Modbus-RTU, or Ethernet.
