Flow instruments equipped with Foundation Fieldbus interface


The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed a new communication module for connecting flow instruments to the Foundation Fieldbus (FF). The module is suitable for the series of Sitrans F M 6000 and Sitrans F C MASS 6000 devices, which are part of the USM II (Universal Signal Module) family. Based on the “plug-and-play” principle, the user simply clicks the module into the mount of the instrument. Depending on the desired communication method, next to the new FF module there are additional communication modules available such as for Profibus PA/DP, Hart, Modbus RTU and DeviceNet.
