TRACER®vm Electronic Flowmeter with User Interface

Includes Programmable SPDT Switch, Analog Output, and FCI (Flow Characteristic Indicator) Technology with New Totalizer Function

TRACER®vm Electronic Flowmeter with Interface, 1"NPT

Tracer®vm Electronic Flowmeter with User Interface employs reliable vortex shedding technology to monitor liquid flow rate and temperature. The newly designed control circuit provides programmable switch set points for high or low flow or temperature and turbulent flow rate (FCI Technology). Analog Outputs for flow and temperature are selectable: 0 to 5 or 0 to 10 Volts, for connection to data acquisition system or PLC. A totalizing function is unique to this user interface with volume display from a selected point. BTU’s per minute calculation is also included with this model.

Tracervm with Interface

Every unit is equipped with internal rechargable battery for temporary operation without attachment to direct power source. Standard cable is supplied with loose wire leads for customer termination. Optional AC wall adapter cable provides DC power for charging purposes. Optional cable is available for connection to RJG eDart System™.

Sealed pushbuttons configure the flowmeter and switch operations through bright color LCD display and user-friendly menus. The SPDT switch can be wired directly to an alarm circuit in a process controller or other peripheral equipment such as low voltage stack lights.

NIST Traceable Calibration is available.

Turbulent Flow is the point at which cooling efficiency is optimized. Flow rates higher than the point of Turbulent Flow provide diminishing improvement to cooling rate. Using FCI Technology, systemic cooling water flow can be optimized, conserving water and maximizing cooling plantwide without plumbing changes. "TF" displays when Turbulent Flow is present within the Tracer flowmeter.
