Powerful and portable ultrasonic flow meter

Dec 29, 2011 | Flow & Level

Sierra Instruments has introduced the next generation Innova-Sonic 210i universal transit-time meter for liquid flow measurement applications. Featuring a high-powered ultrasonic pulse with improved digital signal processing, the unit is able to use just one set of transducers over a wide range of pipe sizes.

The 210i includes a tactile pushbutton interface with a large digital display that significantly simplifies set-up and data collection. It comes with a fully field-configurable 4-20mA current loop analog output, 2GB SD memory card for data logging, and a suite of powerful yet user friendly programming menus that simplify data analysis.

Complex totalisation functions are standard including parallel operation of positive, negative and net flow totalisers. Offering an accuracy of +/-1.0% of reading, a wide operating temperature range -40°F to 176°F (40°C to 80°C) and a bi-directional flow range of 0 to 40f/s liquids (0 to 12m/s), the flow meter can be used for a wide range of pipe sizes from 1.0” to 48” (25mm to1200mm).

The built-in totalisers record daily, monthly and yearly totalised flow. Totalised flow for the past 64 days and months and even over the past five years may be viewed.
