The OPTIBAR FC 1000 is a compact, high performance flow computer for volumetric flow calculation and heat quantity measurement of liquids and gases, including saturated steam and superheated steam. Commissioning and operation of the flow computer is quick and easy thanks to its user-friendly operating philosophy. The full-screen, multi-colour touch screen offers extensive options for customising the display of process readings to suit any customer applications. Communication and measured data transmission via HART® protocol as well as the option for split-range operation allows very accurate differential pressure (DP) flow measurements especially at low working pressures. This makes the device an ideal enhancement for gas measurements with averaging pitot tubes as well as flow nozzle meters or Venturi meters with high measuring dynamics.
