Azbil multivariable flowmeters utilize three primary sensing elements–a vortex shedding velocity sensor,
an RTD temperature sensor, and a solid-state pressure transducer–to measure the mass flow rate of gases, liquids and steam.
Systems that use external process measurements to calculate mass flow may not provide adequate compensation for the fact that process conditions can change radically between the point of velocity
measurement and the point where upstream or downstream pressure and temperature measurements are being made. Because the multivariable flowmeter measures all of these parameters in a single location, it delivers a more accurate process measurement.
Integrating multivariable output capability with a single line penetration also simplifies
system complexity and helps reduce initial equipment cost, installation cost and
The AX2400 series is available in a reducing configuration which allows the meter to be reduced internally from the nominal line size thus increasing the units useable measuring range. The AX2400 series has added the ability to power the meter with the POE, Power over Ethernet, functionality with a POE switch or router. This allows for onboard datalogging and the use of Modbus TCP/IP and BACnet IP communications as well as configuration and monitoring via the web interface. The various options and configurations of the meter are intended to help meet your specific application requirements.
