Product Announcement from KROHNE, Inc.
The new OPTISONIC 6400 flowmeter combines portability, simplicity, and fast liquid measurement with the proven precision and reliability of KROHNE ultrasonic time of flight sensor technology. Its ease of use and flexibility make the OPTISONIC 6400 the ideal solution for flow measurement in a variety of applications in virtually any industry.
The OPTISONIC 6400 is compact and easy to install. Users simply attach the innovative sensor rail to the pipe and plug in the cables to the handheld OPTISONIC 6400 electronics, set up a few parameters, and begin reading instantaneous flow results. The device stores the readings in the integrated memory for data logging. Data can also be transferred via a USB stick to external evaluation systems for further review.
The OPTISONIC 6400 is comprised of a compact evaluation unit and one or two rails, each equipped with two ultrasonic sensors. The rails are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate different tube diameters, from 1/2 inch to 160 inch. The rail is simply attached to the pipeline to be measured using fabric belts or steel straps. A second rail is used for dual measurements on the same pipe or a second pipe. The entire measuring system is packaged in a practical suitcase with wheels.
The OPTISONIC 6400 is powered either by an integrated battery with 14 hours running time, or line powered, with an adapter supplied. The readings are shown on a large color graphic LCD. The compact design and ease of installation make the OPTISONIC 6400 the perfect measuring device for temporary flow monitoring in numerous applications. Thanks to its mobility, the device is equally suited to comparative measurements on stationary measuring equipment or for use as a short-term replacement for faulty in-line devices.
