Universal Flow Monitors' CoolPoint Vortex Shedding Flowmeters feature Profinet
Universal Flow Monitors is adding a Profinet option to its CoolPoint Vortex Shedding Flowmeters. The Universal Flow Monitors' CoolPoint with Profinet features fast start up (within 500 milliseconds) and dual RJ45 connectors with a built-in hub. Enclosed in a molded plastic housing, it measures and transmits flow over Profinet Industrial Ethernet networking for manufacturing and process plants.
CoolPoint Vortex Shedding Flowmeters measure the velocity of liquids. They use a bluff body obstruction to produce vortices, and an electronic transducer measures these oscillations to provide a signal proportional to flow rate. Increasing flow increases the frequency of oscillation.
