CHEM.INFO EXCLUSIVE: Intelligent Thermal Mass Sensing Flowmeter
The FlexMASSter ST98 thermal mass sensing flowmeter series now meets the Profibus-DP/-PA standards and includes its own Device Type Manager (DTM) software for use in large scale process and plant automation systems. Fully compatible with Profile 3, the air/gas flowmeter is now a drop-in network replacement instrument for any other Profibus-DP/-PA flowmeter, providing process flow and totalized flow data in a matter of minutes. The unit's DTM software eases the setup and commissioning process by providing instant access to built-in field-adjustable parameters, diagnostic information, and maintenance functions. Both single instrument and enterprise-level DTM software packages are available to facilitate integration with Profibus. Accuracy is ۫ percent of reading, plus۪.5 percent of full scale, with repeatability to۪.5 percent of reading.
