We Support the Following Digital Communication Protocols
Sierra supports Modbus RTU digital communication protocol for flexible integration of our mass flow meters and controllers into any automation or control system. Modbus Protocol is a messaging structure developed by Modicon in 1979. It is used to establish master-slave/client-server communication between intelligent devices.
Sierra supports Profibus DP digital communications protocol for flexible integration of our mass flow meters and controllers into any automation or control system. PROFIBUS is the fieldbus-based automation standard of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI).
Sierra supports HART digital communication protocol for flexible integration of our mass flow meters and controllers into any automation or control system. The HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) Protocol is the global standard for sending and receiving digital information across analog wires between smart devices and control or monitoring system.
Sierra supports BACnet digital communication protocol for flexible integration into any building automation and control network. Developed under the auspices of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), BACnet is an American national standard, a European standard, a national standard in more than 30 countries, and an ISO global standard.
Foundation Fieldbus technology is the world's leading digital protocol for process automation. It provides end users with the "Freedom to Choose" best-in-class, interoperable control products from their suppliers of choice, and the "Power to Integrate" control systems, subsystems and devices across the plant enterprise.
