Fox Thermal Instrument’s FOX FT2 thermal gas mass flowmeter and temperature transmitter is designed to provide smart, real-time measurement of flow and temperature and supports a range of communication protocols, including RS422/RS485-Modbus, ProfibusDP, DeviceNet and Ethernet. The instrument directly measures mass flowrate of air and gases, and provides isolated 4-20 mA and pulse outputs for mass flowrate, as well as a 4-20 mA output for process gas temperature. The FT2 View software allows users to change meter configuration, collect process data or view measurements from a PC or control station. A Palm PDA interface provides similar functionality, and is a good fit for “walkaround” monitoring of process conditions. The device is FM and FMc approved and NEMA 4X and CE approved.
