The ideal flow computer for gas metering with SICK ultrasonic gas meters

The Flow-X flow computer provides gas volume conversion, event logging, audit trails and reports using latest technology. Each module combines advanced measurement technology, fast digital signal processing, abundant processing power, versatile data communication and high capacity storage into a fully equipped flow computer. Stream modules are combined in different enclosures, offering a multi-stream version Flow-X/P for 1 – 4 streams with local touch screen or a single stream version Flow-X/S for smaller installations with one stream. The Flow-X flow computer meets the requirements for even the most demanding applications and is the ideal partner for custody gas metering solutions in installations with FLOWSIC600 ultrasonic gas meters.
