With the addition of the Modbus communication protocol to its new ST80 Series, recently enhanced ST51A/ST75A Series, and ST100 Series and multipoint MT100 Series, Fluid Components International (FCI; San Marcos, CA) now provides the industry’s broadest selection of Modbus compatible thermal mass air/gas meters. For Modbus-based measurement and control systems, with air or gas flow rate components, FCI can now provide an optimal, highest value flow meter solution matched to the application. FCI thermal mass flow meters with Modbus I/O are available for line sizes from ¼ inch (6 mm) to the largest of stacks and ducts, and every size in-between. They are designed to measure the flow of air and more than 200 different gases, including inert and hydrocarbon-based, in both pure and mixed compositions.
All FCI thermal flow meters are available in a vast choice of process connections to ensure compatibility with virtually any piping and installation criteria. The instruments are inherently dual function and can provide flow and temperature measurement, as well as totalized flow, outputs over the Modbus connection.
