Exair’s new Digital Flowmeters with wireless capability use a Zigbee mesh network protocol to measure and monitor compressed air use, trends and historical data. Each meter has a range of 100 feet (30 meters) and transmits data to an Ethernet connected gateway. Each meter and gateway are configured for security and have 128 bit encryption for the wireless transmissions.
Each meter ships with the wireless to Ethernet gateway, power supplies and installation tools. With EXAIRlogger software customers can graph the data, aggregate it to identify air use trends or use it with other analytic software to effectively monitor air. Airflow values are expressed in standard cubic feet per minute or cubic meters per hour.
Digital Flowmeters with wireless capability for schedule 40 iron pipe are now available in sizes 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, 1 inch, 1-1/2 inch, 2 inch, 2-1/2 inch, 3 inch and 4 inch. They are CE and RoHS compliant and can also be ordered for schedule 80, 10S or Type L copper pipe.
