FCI's ST100 Flow Meter features a wide choice of communication options
FCI’s ST100 Flow Meter features 4-20 mA analog, frequency/pulse, alarm relays and fully-approved digital communications: HART, Foundation Fieldbus, Modbus and Profibus. The ST100 is designed with a plug-in card replacement that can be changed out by technicians in the field to adapt to a plant’s changing network communication needs.
Developed with a graphical, multivariable, backlit LCD display, the ST100 Flow Meter's readout continuously displays all process measurements and alarm status.
The ST100 Flow Meter measures gas mass flow rate, total flow, temperature and pressure depending on modelfamily. It can store up to five unique calibration groups to accommodate broad flow ranges, differing mixtures of the same gas and multiple gases, and obtains up to 1000:1 turndown. Also standard is an on-board data logger with a removable 2-GB micro-SD memory card capable of storing 21 million readings.
ST100 Flow Meters can be calibrated to measure virtually any process gas, including wet, mixed and dirty gases. The basic insertion style air/gas meter features a thermal flow sensing element that measures flow from 0.25 to 1000 SFPS (0.07 NMPS to 305 NMPS) with accuracy of ±0.75 percent of reading, ±0.5 percent of full scale.
Offering service up to 850ºF (454ºC), the ST100 Flow Meter is designed for rugged industrial process and plant applications. Both integral and remote (up to 1000 feet [300 meters]) electronics versions are available. The ST100 is agency approved for hazardous environments, including the entire instrument, the transmitter and the enclosure. Instrument approvals include: FM and FMc: Class 1, Division 1, hazardous locations, Groups B, C, D, E, F, G; ATEX and IECEx: Zone 1, II 2 GD Ex d IIC T4; The rugged enclosure is NEMA 4X/IP67 rated.
