red-y compact 2 series now available with alarm option

digital mass flow meters with alarm functionality

We have the pleasure to announce the release of an advanced alarm moduleĀ for the red-y compact 2 series which adds lots of functionalityĀ to our digital mass flow meters. The alarm moduleĀ provides 3 configurable alarms. The following triggers are available: High alarm, low alarm, window alarm and totalizer alarm.

Together with the new alarm module we release an new firmware with new features & improvements:

180Ā° screen rotation: They screen turns automatically 180 degrees if you turn the unit over. You can also manually set the display to permanently turn 180 degrees, especially convenient if the gas inlet is coming from the right.

Displayed flow and totalizer resolution setting manually adjustable: The display has the ability to read the flow in many different units, that means that the visible number of digits is calculated depending on the range and the units you select. Normally this is done automatically, but some customers want to see fewer digits to make the display less ā€œnervousā€. In addition to the automatic resolution setting of the flow and totalizer values, you can now set you own desired number of digits.
