New: Ethernet-APL Development Service & Design Package

Thursday, 18. February 2021

MESCO has expanded the service portfolio and the Design Package platform with the Ethernet APL technology. This specifically accelerates the development of process devices with Ethernet interfaces in Ex areas.

In combination with the MESCO Safety CPU module (in 1oo2 architecture) it forms the basis for the development of a safety-relevant transmitter according to SIL3 requirements, Safety Industrial Ethernet Interface and Safe I/O.

Standard safety protocols such as PROFINET / PROFIsafe and EtherCAT / FSoE can thus be used for PA transmitters.

The MESCO Design Package platform ensures a fast development time, a clearly reduced risk, a real rapid prototyping and is open to other new technologies such as OPC-UA for cloud services.

This Ethernet APL technology will revolutionize PA measurement technology and field communication and change it permanently.

We offer the platform as well as the development service. Use both advantages!




New HART® Slave Stack version 7.7

MESCO launches the latest version of its portable protocol software for HART field devices. HART Slave Stack 7.7 offers a quick and easy solution for communication that corresponds completely to the HART fieldbus system. A detailed documented interface for API simplifies integration and porting even further. The pre-certified software cuts development times considerably.


Review: Online Round Table TÜV NORD & MESCO

The high-quality Safety & Security Webinar on May 5, 2021 was extremely well attended with well over a hundred permanently connected listeners. The specialists from MESCO and TÜV NORD reported in detail on the complex environment of functional safety.


Close the Gap! Industrial Ethernet in process automation

In process automation, industrial Ethernet can close the gap to the production plant and safely bridge long distances. The basis for this has been created with the standardization activities around IEEE802.3cg.

With a lecture at the Forum Safety & Security 2021, MESCO shows how an ATEX-compliant design for explosive atmospheres can be developed with Ethernet APL.
