VPFlowScope M industry 4.0 flow meter

The VPFlowScope® M is a four-in-one insertion flow meter for compressed air and technical gases. It can be installed under pressure and measures flow, pressure, temperature, and total flow simultaneously. With its standard Ethernet interface, the VPFlowScope M will connect directly to any network and will form seamlessly one of the cornerstones of any real-time energy management platform. But it is also compatible with the traditional world, thanks to the standard 4..20 mA signals and RS485 (Modbus RTU) interface.

Applications:

  • Demand side compressed air monitoring
  • Air audits
  • Submetering of compressed air
  • Ring networks (due to its unique bi-directional flow measurement)
  • Cost allocation
  • Industrial gas monitoring (air, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, argon and other dry, noncorrosive industrial gases)
  • Leak detection
