The Liquiline CM44 multichannel transmitter can be used for process monitoring in the water, wastewater, chemical, power and other industries. 

The Liquiline multichannel transmitter features an integrated web server that allows the operator to remotely view diagnostic data, perform configuration, or access device parameters via any web browser. Data can be securely accessed and maintenance functions can be performed via Endress+Hauser’s FieldCare asset management system.

Endress+Hauser’s Memosens technology enables customers to use EtherNet/IP and one CM44 transmitter to access many parameters and accept inputs down to the sensor level including sensor condition and diagnostics. They also have the ability to configure up to eight Memosens digital sensors via remote access, including nitrate, spectral absorption coefficient (SAC), pH, ORP, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, free-chlorine and ion selective electrode sensors.

The modular four-wire transmitter is available in one to eight-channel versions and can be expanded at any time, and users can easily swap or mix and match any combination of sensors. The CM44 transmitter recognizes the sensor and will begin operating immediately without rebooting the transmitter. Memosens protocol sensors can be pre-calibrated and the sensor-specific data is stored in the sensor.

With just a few clicks, an EtherNet/IP enabled multiparameter transmitter is enabled and ready to provide critical process information to a PlantPAx control system. Total process management is now possible, because operators now have the ability to integrate, configure and commission in minutes.

In addition to EtherNet/IP connectivity, the multiparameter transmitter has built-in connectivity to Ethernet, Profibus, Modbus, HART and 485 networks.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
