Badger Meter's Data Industrial 340 BN/MB Btu Energy Transmitter
Badger Meter’s Data Industrial 340 BN/MB Btu Energy Transmitter is for submetering applications that use BACnet or Modbus. The 340 BN/MB Btu Energy Transmitter combines three previous models—the 340, 340BN, and the 340MB—into one economical and compact unit to provide precise thermal measurement for HVAC, building and facilities management, irrigation, and process applications. The Badger Meter 340 BN/MB Btu Energy Transmitter measures thermal energy by integrating the liquid flow rate in a closed pipe system and the differential temperature between the supply and return. An onboard microcontroller and digital circuitry on the unit produce precise measurements and accurate, drift-free outputs. Real-time flow rate, flow total, temperatures, energy rate, and energy total can be accessed when the unit is connected to a PC or laptop computer. In addition, the 340 BN/MB Btu Energy Transmitter features three LEDs to verify flow sensor activity, network link, and the pulse output.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
