Digital microsensor company Sensirion AG will unveil a new flow meter for gas meters at European Utility Week 2014, taking place early next month in Amsterdam.
The new SGM70xx is the first microthermal gas flow module to be produced as standard by the Swiss sensor expert and will be available from March 2015.
Based on a microthermal measuring principle suitable for applications in the residential market, the mass flow meter has been in the field in Italy and Germany for over three years.
Sensor module for gas market
The SGM70xx is digital, temperature-compensated and pressure-corrected. It is also calibrated for air and natural gas and has a standard connection and I2C interface.
The meter uses CMSensTechnology with the sensor component and evaluation circuit integrated on a single CMOS microchip.
Tested in the field
The SGM70xx features software and hardware tested both in the field and by GWI to compensate for the various gas mixtures.
If necessary, the gas meter module can also be purchased with European NMI certification.
