Remote feature option comes with the remote enclosure and mounting bracket. Cable from the flow element transmitter to the remote enclosure enters at the bottom of the bracket piping.
Series 5xx ValuMass™ Flowmeters
The 500 ValuMass™ flow meters include 16-bit linearization technology for excellent flow rate accuracy and rugged construction of 316/316L stainless steel wetted parts. The robust feature set includes:
- 0 – 5 or 0 – 10 VDC output
- 4 – 20mA output
- RS485 Modbus RTU communications
- 0 – 1 kHz output proportional flow
- RS232C port
- optional 2-line, 16-character backlit LCD and 4-button keypad
- programmable dry contact Relay for alarms or pulsed output totalization
Our ValuMass™ inline style flow meters accommodate virtually all common installation requirements. The inline style flow meters are available for line sizes from ¼” to 2”. The 3 ½” long flow sections have MNPT ends as standard for easy mounting in the process line. ValuMass™ flow meters accept 24VDC, 115VAC or 230VAC input power as specified at the time of purchase.
EPI’s thermal dispersion flowmeters are solid state instruments that use the principle of convective heat transfer to directly measure gas mass flow. EPI’s sensors consist of two resistance temperature detectors (RTDs). A digital bridge preferentially heats one RTD; the other RTD acts as the temperature reference. The gas flow dissipates heat from the first RTD, causing an increase in the power required to maintain a balance between the RTDs. This increase is directly related to the gas molecular rate of flow.
Our sensors are temperature compensated and insensitive to pressure changes, so no additional instrumentation or calculations are required. The output signal is a true mass flow rate signal which can be directly interfaced with your data acquisition system.
