Cole-Parmer Launches Masterflex® Advanced Networking Drives

Faster, less expensive automation integration—eliminate gateways or adapters


Masterflex Advanced Networking Drives from Cole-ParmerThe new advanced networking drives for Masterflex® peristaltic pumps, from Cole-Parmer, provide options for popular networking protocols without the need to install gateways or adapters. These communication protocols cover a broad range of connectivity and communication with most advanced automation control systems. The drives are ideal for industrial networking, bioprocessing, plant automation, or water/wastewater applications.

The new drive options include either native Ethernet/IP or Profibus bi-directional communication with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity and a downloadable iOS-based mobile app to permit local pump monitoring and control. Cloud-based remote pump monitoring and control capability is available to provide pump status and alerts and full operational control. The drives are compatible with most of today’s advanced automation control systems, such as Allen-Bradley®, Siemens®, Emerson®, and Honeywell®.

Advanced networking drives are now available on Masterflex L/S® and I/P® drives in either a benchtop console or a process-suitable NEMA 4X (IP66) enclosure.
