Rate totaliser ticks all the right boxes
Published: 1 March 2018 - Sarah Mead
Flow measurement specialists TRIMEC Europe has recently introduced a new flow rate totaliser to its long established range of flow measurement products. The FRT flowrate totaliser is designed primarily for flow metering applications, and can be meter mounted or wall or pipe mounted.
Simple to set-up and use, the FRT features three easy-to-view data displays on a large LCD. Data input is via push button selection and provides 7 digit instantaneous flow rate, re-settable total and a 7 digit accumulative total. Total and flowrate units of measure are user selectable via a straight forward programming sequence featuring English language prompts.
The FRT is suitable for use with all types of digital output flowmeters thanks to its software selectable input (reed, open collectors, hall effect switches, Namur, variable reluctance type sensors, voltage pulse wire or TTL signals can be accommodated).
The FRT has options for Analogue, Scaled Pulse and Alarm outputs with a further option for two stage batch control.
The FRT is powered by a 3.6 volt AA Lithium battery with a 2 year life. Alternatively, it can be powered by 10-30 VDC which facilitates backlighting for the LCD display and output.
Packaged in a strong, UV stabilised glass-re-enforced nylon housing with a protection lid that covers the display and push-buttons. The case is IP65 weatherproof in accordance with EN-60529:1991(Degrees of protection “IP”).
The case has a single electrical entry point fitted with a sealed breakout that is threaded M16 to enable interfacing with flowmeters or associated field wiring.
