New Product: The MX200 with EthernetIP Capability


Advanced technology and innovation are two things you’ll always find at The Fredericks Company because our engineers pay close attention to the changing needs of the dynamic industries we serve. We’re continuously expanding our product lines to adapt to new industry requirements and fill gaps across the tilt and vacuum measurement market.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the release of our newest product, the TELEVAC MX200 Vacuum Controller with EthernetIP (EIP) capability. This model increases the capabilities of the highly successful MX200 Vacuum Controller released in the summer of 2016, adding a new level of precision and versatility.

Heidi McKenna, President of The Fredericks Company, spoke about the product’s release:

“As our customers’ needs become more advanced, it’s important for us to remain at the forefront of product innovation to help move their businesses forward. Adding EIP capability to our best-in-class MX200 controller was a natural decision based on the increasing need for a highly compatible, flexible, and streamlined sensing solution.” 

With EthernetIP functionality, the new device is capable of interfacing directly with Rockwell Automation® Allen-Bradley® Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). It operates on the fastest and most reliable Ethernet network available for industrial automation applications, using an industry recognized and pre-certified HMS Anybus® CompactCom™ device to handle the network interface.

Sample applications for this device include use in heat treat and vacuum furnaces, laboratories and research, universities, and more.
