The HCS as a Diagnostic Tool

The HCS as a Diagnostic Tool

We know it is easier for many customers to communicate using MODBUS RTU protocol than HART protocol and that makes the HCS HART® Concentrator System a very popular tool.

We also know customers want more diagnostic information so they can access the health of their processes and instrumentation. HART Command 48 is what the industry and the HCS uses to retrieve diagnostic information from the HART slave device, whether that is a transmitter or a valve positioner. The HCS will not implement Command 48 unless you turn on that feature by checking “Acquire Additional Status” on the HART tab of the configuration software.

Temperature Q&A with J.R. Madden: Accurate Differential Temperature Readings

Temperature Q&A with J.R. Madden: Accurate Differential Temperature Readings

Q: How do I measure differential temperature very accurately?

A: Whenever accuracy is the goal you want to start with RTDs (temperature range permitting). Many temperature transmitters will accept two RTDs and output the difference between the two inputs. However, if you look closely you will find they only make 3-wire RTD measurements and you may have errors and drifts due to wire length and corrosion build up over time.

NCS NET Concentrator System Improves Efficiency and Performance of Power Plants

NCS NET Concentrator System Improves Efficiency and Performance of Power Plants

Performing maintenance, repairs and upgrades at modern power plants is often challenging. Many power plants are built on instrumentation from companies that no longer exist or that use technology that has become outdated. Updating plants with new technology that can improve performance and reliability can be challenging and cost-prohibitive.

Moore Industries has a full range of instrumentation that can help power plants manage their transition to modern technology. One product detailed in our Automation and Instrument Solutions for Power Plant Applications line card is the NCS NET Concentrator System®.
