Wireless digital flowmeters
A line of digital flowmeters with wireless capability use a Zigbee mesh network protocol to measure and monitor compressed air use, trends, and historical data. Each meter has a range of 100 feet and transmits data to an Ethernet connected gateway. Each meter and gateway are configured for security and have 128-bit encryption for the wireless transmissions. Measuring compressed air is the first step toward identifying high compressed air use areas, compressed air leaks and optimizing air use. Each meter ships with the wireless to Ethernet gateway, power supplies and installation tools. Digital flowmeters with wireless capability for schedule 40 iron pipe are now available in sizes 1/2- to 4-in. They are CE- and RoHS-compliant and can also be ordered for schedule 80, 10S or Type L copper pipe.
