Jun. 3, 2018 – Badger Meter has introduced the Dynasonics TFX-500w ultrasonic clamp-on flow meter, designed for non-invasive, ultrasonic transit time flow measurement. The new meter was unveiled at Hannover Messe 2018.
The TFX-500w Ultrasonic Clamp-on Flow Meter measures water flow bi-directionally in a variety of applications, such as water systems, wastewater effluent, agricultural irrigation and industrial discharge, says the company. As a clamp-on flow measurement instrument, the TFX-500w is suitable for users requiring a high level of applicability, functionality, economy and performance, said Cheryl Ades Anspach, marketing manager, Badger Meter. With the TFX-500w Ultrasonic Clamp-on Flow Meter, ultrasonic waves transmit upstream and downstream through the pipe wall and liquid flowing in the pipe. By measuring the difference in the travel time and knowing the pipe size, the meter determines the rate, total and velocity of water flow, explains the company.
The TFX-500w provides Modbus RTU and BACnet MS/TP connectivity, and integrates with the Badger Meter BEACON and AquaCUE Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) Cloud-based software suites. Programming of the meter is through the front panel or USB cable using SoloCUE configuration software.
