Currently in the food and beverage industry it is necessary to have efficient processes, reduce costs and maintain the quality of their products, this is achieved through process automation, an important point for automation is the use of measuring instruments such as flow, pressure, temperature, level, analytical meters,

The instrumentation is the basis of the automation and they are in charge of bringing the information of what happens within the process to the control system, this information is carried by different types of signals such as a 4… 20 mA or by communication protocols used in the industry such as HART, Ethernet, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, etc.

Therefore, it is necessary to have the appropriate tools to be able to access the instrumentation to be able to perform the appropriate configuration of the instruments as well as to be able to intervene in case of any modification. Endress Hauser has different alternatives to access the instruments and make the appropriate configuration.
