Access and control flowmeters from a smartphone

By Chemical Engineering |

AW-Lake

Edge Flow Electronics (photo) interface with positive-displacement or turbine flowmeters to provide better access, understanding and control of processes — in some cases, from a smartphone. When installed on a flowmeter, Edge devices can force the sensor to output a frequency or analog signal output for greater flexibility when interfacing with readout equipment or control rooms. Modbus output also adds system compatibility for more advanced operations. A Bluetooth mobile application supports innovative signal processing, allowing users to monitor and program flowmeters from a smartphone. Mobile and PC-based applications streamline installation, configuration and troubleshooting. With basic scaling and advanced functions, the user-friendly application allows for remote correction of non-linear flowmeters to maintain a linear analog output. — AW-Lake Co., Oak Creek, Wis.
