Titan Enterprises’ Atrato line of patented ultrasonic inline flowmeters consists of four models operating over a flow range of 2ml per minute up to 20 litres per minute. The USB connection gives the Atrato computer interface capability, enabling the user to directly monitor the flow rate being measured and alter the operating parameters using a PC.
Titan’s development of the Atrato’s new interface software features four key functionality improvements:
- The ability to connect, configure and operate multiple Atrato flowmeters on a computer simultaneously whilst minimising CPU usage.
- Additional capability to run simple local and remote-control batching operations using an inbuilt relay.
- Remote start / restart capability for long shut-down periods.
- The ability to increase signal gain via the software for liquids with poor acoustic properties.
The Atrato interface software enables the user to log the flow data directly via USB. This data-logging capability gives a continuous picture of the flow characteristics of the system being monitored, such as flow, alarms, relay and pulse. The upgrade integrates developments in both the Atrato’s internal software and the PC interface software, providing a combination of increased versatility and advanced operational features, giving a convenient platform for users to integrate into their processes or systems and supporting better diagnostic capability.
