Integral/compact RHE42 transmitters are available on RHM06S to RHM20S sensors with seal less construction types and N1/NA/E2 process temperature ratings. For other sensor types, the RHE42 transmitter must be remotely mounted.
The RHE42 is available with a variety of standard I/O configurations to provide the ultimate in flexibility and value for all users. Rheonik also offers a custom configuration option to provide I/O combinations not listed below.
Program Packages and Features
The RHE42 is available with six different programming packages, each with specific features and
functions suited to typical user applications
Mass Flow Measurement Package (Part Number Code SO)
The RHE42 Mass Flow Measurement package provides all the basic measurement functions and
features for accurate mass flow measurement:
Direct Mass Flow Measurement
Mass flow is calculated using the Coriolis principle to provide a high accuracy Mass Flow
measurement of the fluid or gas flowing through an Omega Tube Coriolis sensor.
Each Omega Tube Coriolis sensor provides a temperature measurement from built in sensors.
Density and Volumetric Flow Functions
Density and volumetric flow rate can be calculated, displayed and output from a transmitter by initiating one of several options for indirect density measurement:
- Fix or Norm Density value entry. A fix or Norm Density value is entered into the transmitter either through the keypad or via Modbus. This value is used to calculate a volumetric flow rate in addition to the live mass flow measurement. The density value could be updated as needed; via Modbus continuously if wanted. This particular function is often used to display a gas flow in normalized or standard gas volume units such as Nm³/h or SCF/h.
- Calculated density based upon temperature. A flowing density value is calculated based upon a reference density value, a change per unit temperature coefficient and measured tube temperature in the sensor. Based upon the tube temperature, the reference value is modified with the entered change coefficient to generate a calculated density value. This calculated density value can be used to provide a volumetric flow rate of the fluid in the sensor
