Measure energy flow with these smart meters

InnovaMass 240i and 241i vortex mass flowmeters (photo) are specifically designed for precise energy management in steam, compressed-air, natural-gas and water applications. The meters are equipped with the Raptor II operating system, which allows for fast processing and enables the use of robust software applications, including FloPro, which improves point-velocity accuracy. The patented sensor technology extends the measurement range for fluids with Reynolds numbers well below 5,000. The onboard Smart Interface Portal (SIP) software provides quick access to field validation and meter configuration. Users can also access diagnostics through the SIP or the meter’s LCD display to automatically check firmware and hardware, and report faults to the factory for immediate repair. Tuning from the SIP or local display allows field adjustments for the low-flow cutoff and vortex coefficient. Through the SIP, firmware can also be updated or repaired in-situ. — Sierra Instruments, Monterey, Calif.
