The new website is designed to make it easy for users to determine which protocols and which ProtoCessor hardware are necessary to meet their interoperability requirements.  The “Products” section covers the four primary types of ProtoCessor solutions available including: ProtoCessor – a powerful module that can plug directly into your board; ProtoCarrier – for rapid deployment of a protocol interface solution; ProtoNode – instant multiprotocol deployment; and ProtoConnect – multiprotocol capability on a custom board.

Under the “Solutions” section the user can check out the many applications that currently use ProtoCessors and learn more about the wide range of protocol drivers available in the extensive FieldServer driver library.

Brochure Describes New Grinder System
A new brochure describes the Moyno® Max-Flow Annihilator™ Grinder System, providing detailed descriptions, key performance benefits, technical information and full color photographs. The Moyno® Max-Flow Annihilator™ Grinder System is a custom engineered headworks debris handling system that protects downstream pumps, valves and process equipment in wastewater treatment plants and their lift stations. The cost-effective, low maintenance Moyno Max-Flow Annihilator Grinder System can be used in place of bar rakes and screens as well as drum screen grinders for enhanced performance. The Max-Flow system contains two or more Annihilator grinders mounted side-by-side in a stainless steel retrieval frame in the headworks of a waste treatment system. They can be installed in an in-line or a staggered or offset design to accommodate a variety of channel widths.

Brochure discusses series of videographic recorders
An eight-page, full-colour brochure describes ABB's SM Series of videographic (paperless) recorders for capturing, storing, and analyzing process data. These recorders incorporate advanced designs, clear operator displays, and an intuitive user interface. Ethernet communications allow wide access to process information and historical data while ensuring security. The brochure first discusses the SM500F field mountable videographic recorder. Users can install this four-channel recorder in hostile environments, offering local access to operational data. Subsequently treated are the SM1000, SM2000, and SM3000 videographic recorders for mounting in control rooms. These differ depending on their I/O, display sizes, operator interfaces, and internal memories. Next the brochure covers user interaction, data security and analysis, and Ethernet communications. Remote access to an SM Series recorder is possible via standard web browsers and GSM technologies. Key process events can trigger email notifications to multiple recipients. Lastly, the brochure includes a grid that calls out the different attributes of the four recorders within the SM videographic series.
