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:
