Thermal Mass Flow Meter utilizes 3-contact alarm module.

Press Release Summary:




Operating on one AA battery for up to 6 months, red-y compact 2 thermal mass flow meter provides gas flow measurements from 0–10 sccm to 480 slpm. Without connecting to computer, users can set more than 20 flow units and adjust nearly 50 variables through touchscreen. Unit has dynamic range up to 100:1 and accuracy of ±1% of full scale. Alarm module, which can be retrofitted to meter in field, features 3 alarm contacts and 2 optical isolated input channels to optionally reset alarm remotely.

Vogtlin Thermal Mass Flow Meters Now Available with 3-Contact Alarm Module



Swiss MEMS sensor manufacturer and leading gas flow measurement and control instrumentation company Vögtlin Instruments AG announces the availability of a 3-contact alarm module with remote alarm reset for the red-y compact 2 series gas mass flow meter.



Franksville, Wisconsin-- The economically priced red-y compact 2 thermal mass flow meter has proven itself in the market for scientific gas flow measurements from 0-10 sccm up to 480 slpm. Initially released in 2001, the meter has been completely re-engineered to operate on one single AA battery for up to 6 months, a Micro-USB power supply, or via a 12…30 Vdc power supply.



Without connecting the unit to a computer, users can set more than 20 flow units and adjust nearly 50 variables through a convenient touch screen.  Supplied with up to 3 different gases or gas mixtures, the unit has a dynamic range of up to 100 : 1 and an accuracy of ±1% of full scale.



A new alarm module, which can be retrofitted to red-y compact 2 devices already in the field, features:

• 3 alarm contacts (relays that can switch up to 1 amp, 30 Vdc)

• 2 optical isolated input channels (to optionally reset an alarm remotely)

• Every alarm contact separately settable as high, low, window or totalizer alarm

• Customer configurable hysteresis, delay and alarm duration time
