ROTAMASS Total insight protocols

Field Network Flow Q&A

Which kind of protocol I can have using the new flow meter from Yokogawa? I have a FOUNDATION Fieldbus network. Can I use the ROTAMASS?

Expert’s answer: ROTAMASS Total insight protocols

Choose your ROTAMASS version carefully, because else you might get problems with your ROTAMASS Total insight protocols! The Essential transmitter only has HART for a protocol option. In your case, you need the Ultimate transmitter, which can use HART, Modbus, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, and PROFIBUS PA.

Also, you have other options on the market that use FF protocol! So before you decide on the ROTAMASS, you may want to compare the options and see which one suits your needs best.
