Capacity of 3,000 CFH is ideal for commercial and industrial applications
Raleigh, NC (August 26, 2010) Sensus announces the increased capacity of its top of the line Sonix® 2000 ultrasonic gas meter. With an increase from 2,000 to 3,000 cubic feet per hour (CFH), the Sonix meter is an ideal choice for commercial and industrial applications traditionally served by mechanical rotary meters.
Sonix ultrasonic meters are primarily used by gas utilities and municipalities in commercial applications, including office buildings, restaurants, hotels, and other larger gas consumers. "By increasing its capacity, we can bring our utility customers a complete electronic-based commercial measurement solution that allows them to standardize meter installation sets and reduce inventory," said Rob Ennis, Vice President of Marketing for Sensus Global Gas.
With no moving parts, the Sensus Sonix2000 requires less maintenance than traditional meters and is not susceptible to stoppage or damage from freezing, piping stress, or particulates in the gas line. Unlike rotary meters, the Sonix does not require additional devices for live temperature compensation, live pressure compensation, or data logging. These features and more, including self-diagnostics and the ability to monitor previously unaccounted-for gas, are built into the Sonix2000.
"As an alternative technology, the Sonix2000 meter is more accurate, requires less
maintenance and avoids the mechanical issues inherent in a rotary meter," said Ennis. "Further, it is compatible with the Sensus FlexNet(TM) communications system, the only AMI solution to communicate via dedicated, FCC-licensed spectrum, thereby ensuring secure and reliable data transmissions."
The higher capacity Sonix meter will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010. For more information about Sonix meters, visit sensussonix.com.
