Badger Meter introduces the ER-500 Series flow monitor, which provides a flexible display platform for monitoring flow metrics in challenging environments. The NEMA 4X-rated design of the enclosure broadens the applications for Badger Meter Industrial Oval Gear (Model IOG) flow meters.
The ER-500 allows users to connect meters to a network for remote monitoring and process automation capabilities. Multi-point linearization tables are supported in all models, enabling increased reading accuracy. Additionally, robust alarm parameters provide faster warning when a change occurs in the process or pipeline.
The ER-500 is an alternative to conventional flow monitors in measurement applications involving very viscous or highly corrosive liquids. This includes petroleum-based fluid measurement and any other liquid compatible with the monitored flow sensor.
The meter is rated for installation in Class I, Div. 1 hazardous areas, and can be mounted directly on a flow sensor, pipe or DIN-rail. The ER-500 is suitable for chemical, petrochemical and oil and gas, water, wastewater, food and beverage, pulp and paper, paints and coatings and printing industries. The ER-500 features a dot-matrix display and enhanced totalization options. The standard communications interface is 4-20 mA and total pulse, while the advanced interface adds two control alarms and Modbus RTU over RS485 connectivity.
