May 8, 2017, Huntingdon Valley, PAThe Fredericks Company, an industry-leading innovator and manufacturer of vacuum and tilt measurement products, announces the TELEVAC MX200 Vacuum Controller with EthernetIP (EIP) capability. This new device adds yet another beneficial feature to the recently released MX200 Vacuum Controller which includes USB/RS-232/RS-485 standard on every unit.

The latest model of the MX200 adds EthernetIP functionality, allowing it to interface directly with Rockwell Automation® Allen-Bradley® Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). This option adds a new level of precision and versatility to the MX200 controller with the fastest and most reliable Ethernet network available for industrial automation applications. The EIP module utilizes an industry recognized and pre-certified HMS Anybus® CompactCom™ device to handle the network interface.

“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,” said Heidi McKenna, President of The Fredericks Company. “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.”

As a modular unit, the MX200 system allows users to choose a vacuum sensing solution specific to their needs. Sample applications for this device include use in heat-treat and vacuum furnaces, laboratories and research, cryogenics, leak detection and freeze drying, coating processes, and more.

This new integration comes after the initial launch of the MX200 model in the summer of 2016, which was a redesign of the MM200 controller, adding a variety of new features and significant improvements to the existing functionality. Fredericks continues to expand its line of versatile vacuum products with the latest technology and industry requirements in mind.
