Sage Metering Inc, Announces Sage Prism(TM)
The Sage Prism(TM) is the newest innovation in our Product Line, offering a Battery Operated Thermal Mass Flow Meter with extensive Datalogging capability. Designed to operate for up to 10 hours on a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, the Insertion Style Portable Thermal Mass Flow Meter can measure and log Gas Flows through existing ports in pipes 1" and larger.
The ergonomically designed Prism Portable can log in Auto Logging Mode or Manual Logging Mode. Auto Mode will capture a Flow data point every 10 seconds. Manual Mode will capture a Flow data point each time the LOG/AUTO button is pressed - and the Display will flash as the point is captured. The data is stored within the Portable for subsequent uploading to a file, and also displays the data visually.
The Display is a high contrast, photo-emissive graphical display, readable even in sunlight (known as an Organic LED). The Meter displays the 4-digit Log#, Instantaneous Flow Rate, Gas Temperature, Channel selected, Tag ID (Pipe location), Graphical Indication of Flow, and Time and Date Stamps.
The Sage Prism Features:
Logs Flow Rate of up to 3800 Points in Manual or Auto Mode
Easily transfers data to PC into Excel format using Addresser Software (included)
Configurable for up to 16 Channels (i.e. different pipe sizes, gases, etc.)
Identifies up to 99 different pipes or locations
Has convenient user-friendly command buttons for Channel or Pipe selection
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery operation - up to 10 hours
Provides a "tool" for large plants to monitor the flow rate in existing ports
in all of their NG and Compressed Air lines to determine efficiencies
and energy usage without the expense of permanent meters
Provides an independent check of calibration against other meters
