Flowmeter programming software eliminates manual data entry
Phoenix, AZ —VisualLink flowmeter programming software from Flow Technology Inc. is designed for turbine flowmeters that use the company’s LinearLink and LinearLink Temperature Compensated Interface (TCI) systems. Microsoft Windows 2000/XP-based software reportedly simplifies flowmeter programming and eliminates the need for manual calibration data entry.
Flow rate data points from FTI .sav flowmeter calibration files can be uploaded directly to either system. No complex calibration information needs to be typed into a PC first. The software also makes it easy to arrange units of measure and header information when programming a flow measurement system. Program may be downloaded free from the Flow Technology Web site until Apr. 1, 2006. Price after the introductory period will be $100.
LinearLink works with all types of turbine flowmeters and is based on measuring the time between turbine rotor blades. It can output “real-time” corrected K-factor flow data in 10 ms with an accuracy of 0.1% of reading over the full repeatable range of the flowmeter. LinearLink TCI is an electronics platform for flowmeter linearization and viscosity/density correction. It reportedly improves flowmeter accuracy even under extreme temperature conditions and is intended for demanding requirements such as are found in aerospace, automotive, and process manufacturing applications.
