Benefits of Smart Electronics in Industrial Meters

Data gathered from flow meters is a valuable part of the precise process of control and improved quality in system maintenance. Ensuring the right measurements are made will help ensure a high level of quality and compliance with regulations. Smart Electronics with mechanical meters help achieve the highest level of production, dispensing the appropriate amount of materials, and helps avoid waste. Smart electronics ensure the best overall performance. 

 

Smart electronics that can be programmed enable engineers to shape data pulled from flow meters more simply – by smoothing out the process of initial system setup. Programmable digital electronics eliminate the reliance on high-speed counter inputs and analog scaling of digital-to-analog converters. Some electronics can totally eliminate the need for pulse and analog inputs. 

 

Digital electronics also simplify meter setup. Users are guided through an embedded application throughout the duration of the setup process either by phone or laptop. These systems eliminate the need for conversions in order to obtain desired flow units and prevent simple user errors. Smart electronics in meter conversion provide conversions that are instant and precise. 

 

They can also scale meter variables automatically to any unit of measure, including stored data or in-unit conversions. They can verify systems are correctly reading information and force-frequency output to ensure the correct wiring is in place.

 

Operators on smart electronics in meter conversions can make adjustments by changing electronic output and then entering the actual reading. Smart electronics will automatically change the system to the correct measurements.
