Universal Flow Monitors announces it is adding a PROFINET option to its CoolPoint™ Vortex Shedding Flowmeters. The CoolPoint™ meter with PROFINET is expected to be available for sale in Q1 of 2013, according to Erik Rosaen, vice president of sales and marketing.
The Universal Flow Monitors' CoolPoint ™ with PROFINET features fast start up (within 500 milliseconds) and dual RJ45 connectors with a built-in hub. Enclosed in a molded plastic housing, it measures and transmits flow over PROFINET Industrial Ethernet networking for manufacturing and process plants.
CoolPoint™ Vortex Shedding Flowmeters measure the velocity of liquids such as water, chemicals and corrosives. They use a bluff body obstruction to produce vortices, and an electronic transducer measures these oscillations to provide a signal proportional to flow rate. Increasing flow increases the frequency of oscillation. CoolPoint™ vortex shedding flowmeters have no moving parts to stick or coat, eliminating potential for clogging.
The molded plastic CoolPoint™ flowmeter with PROFINET communication has the following features:
- Repeatability: ± 0.25 percent (1/4 of 1 percent) of full-scale
- Accuracy: ±2 percent of full-scale
•10:1 Turndown ratio
•Available in pipe sizes ranging from 1/4 inch to 2 inches
•Transmits flow rate, low-flow alarm set point, and alarm status (on/off)
•Receives alarm set point from server (user can set the low-flow threshold remotely from the server side)
•Data update rate: 100 msec
•100 Mbit/s (Full duplex)
•Dual RJ45 ports
•Fast start-up (FSU) compatible
“Universal Flow Monitors stands ready to work with customers to configure the CoolPoint™ flowmeter with PROFINET to meet the needs of their process, providing a flexible, durable, fast, two-way communication of data,” Rosaen said.
