BTG: New Kappa Number Analyser03/31/2011
BTG launches an upgrade of its Kappa Number Analyser, the KNA-5300. The company’s field sensors and analysers are the window to the process and enable Honeywell’s Profit Controller to provide best-in-class Advanced Process Control performance.
Therefore, BTG releases a new PLC and computer interface for new and existing KNA kappa analysers. The new PLC utilizes connection to today’s most common field bus systems and allows four bus modules at one time. These include: Profibus DP, DeviceNet, CANopen, MODBUS, CS31, RCOM, Ethernet TCP/IP, PROFINET and EtherCAT. An OPC server is also provided.
Enhanced user-designated screens, graphics and diagnostics make this the most easily accessible kappa analyser on the market. The computer interface for mill operators, instrument technicians and process engineers is Windows 7 based. Since January, all new BTG kappa analysers are delivered with this enhanced performance. Upgrade kits for mills equipped with the KNA-5200 are available.
