Fluid Components International (FCI) will provide one of the widest selection of Modbus compatible thermal mass air/gas meters to the industry, supported through its Australian distributor AMS Instrumentation & Calibration.

FCI recently added the Modbus communication protocol to its new ST80, ST51A/ST75A, ST100 and multipoint MT100 Series.

This means FCI can now provide an optimal, highest value flow meter solution matched to Modbus-based measurement and control system with air or gas flow rate components.

Available for line sizes from 6mm to the largest stacks and ducts, these thermal mass flow meters with Modbus I/O are designed to measure the flow of air, as well as 200 different gases, including inert and hydrocarbon-based.

The thermal mass air/gas flow meters have no moving parts to foul or clog, and aims to achieve a low install cost due as it does not require routine maintenance.

All FCI thermal flow meters are dual function and can provide flow and temperature measurement, as well as totalised flow and outputs over the Modbus connection
