    Power-over-Ethernet Flow Transmitter

Emerson introduces its first Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Coriolis flow measurement device for the food and beverage, life sciences and chemical industries. The Micro Motion 1600 Coriolis Transmitter is designed to be a scalable solution for facilities wanting to make a gradual transition to remote flow data collection, monitoring and configuration. With traditional Ethernet, optional PoE and an additional licensable configurable output, the 1600 delivers a powerful solution for customers looking for a flow measurement device that will grow with their process and is easily integrated into a control system.

Aluminium or stainless steel housing

PoE can deliver power and data over a single Ethernet cable, which means no new cabling will need to be installed, saving customers up to 50% in installation and maintenance costs. The transmitter can use just PoE or have a separate direct current (DC) power input, depending on wiring availability. The device is available in aluminium or hygienic stainless steel. The compact size and lightweight design are an added space-saving benefit for skid designers.

The transmitter is equipped with a multi-language four-line local operator interface (LOI), a suite of advanced software solutions including Smart Meter Verification, Data Historian, Concentration Measurement and Advanced Phase Measurement, as well as an additional licensable channel that can be configured for analogue, frequency or discrete output and a USB-C service port. The reliable, high-quality data it collects allows for greater process efficiency, which minimises product and process waste, reduces emissions by giving visibility to entrained gas events, and results in a more efficient consumption of power.
