Mass Flow Meters and Controllers Re-imagined

CONGRATULATIONS! You just got your meter and you want to hook it up! We have installed TWO wires, a RED wire that hooks up to the + side of 24 VDC and the WHITE wire that hooks up to the GROUND side of your 24 VDC power supply with at least 200 mA capability.
Please connect it to your power supply and see how the meter works and download the Configuration Software and follow the instructions to connect to your meter with either the USB, BlueTooth, or ModBus RTU.
When done remove those two short wires and keep handy for other quick tests.
Most folks want to get moving quickly so they opt to use the BlueTooth because no wiring is required. Remember, as shown below, that you FIRST tell your PC that you have a BlueTooth located nearby and PAIR it with the Pairing Code of 1234. Windows may enumerate TWO COM ports, it is normally the FIRST one it chooses.

The links and videos below are available from the user program and they automatically serve the content that is related to the function that is being used on the screen the user is using. There is no need to review these videos unless you have a desire to see how the meter works without actually having to use one. Consider these videos as a video guided tour of the Thermal Mass Flow Meter. These videos are fully responsive so you may view them on a Smart Phone.

The table below shows the Register addresses that are in place to support the use the same register scheme used in any Sage Metering ModBus equipped Thermal Mass Flow Meter. The Sage Metering product indicates the raw flow reading in mW, typically in the range of 40 mW to 900 mW. As such, we scale the output of the Mag Flow meter’s 0-32767 Raw Ticks output to the range of 40 to 900 mW when using the ModBus command 582. This provides for easy comparison of the raw values.

Refer to the screen samples below to understand what each of the screens means and indicates to the user.

The QR Code is VERY HANDY to read with your Smart Phone so you can have these instructions on your portable device when you go to the flow meter in the field. These videos render very fast on all Smart Phones.
