TP10 Clamp On BTU Meter
Advanced Clamp-on Transit-time Technologies
The TP10 ultrasonic thermal energy meter provides abundant capabilities for accurate thermal energy measurement of a liquid-based thermal energy production / transferring system. It is the 3rd generation energy meter from Spire Metering Technology. Compared to its predecessors, the 3rd generation offers better performance and a richer feature set, all at a lower price.
The TP10 system consists of a high performance ultrasonic flowmeter TP10 and a pair of standard PT100 temperature sensors. The ultrasonic flowmeter is based on our cutting-edge clamp-on flow measurement technology, which is capable of measuring the flow from outside of a pipe accurately and reliably. Due to the non-intrusive nature of this technology, there is no need for pipe cutting, no moving parts, no pressure drop, no leaks and no risk of contamination. Additionally, the installation is simple and requires no special skills or tools.
The two PT100 sensors, which can be either insertion type or surface-mounted, are used to measure the temperature of the supply flow and the return flow. The energy consumption rate is then calculated based on the temperature difference and the measured flowrate. A built-in energy totalizer is used to accumulate the amount of energy delivered.
The TP10 provides versatile input/output interfaces, such as isolated digital outputs, relay output, batch control, triggered alarms, and 4-20mA output. Additionally, the built-in isolated RS-485 port with surge protection and MODBUS ASCII/RTU support makes remote energy monitoring and energy meter networking easy and reliable. Other output modules, such as BACnet MS/TP, Ethernet, GPRS wireless module, RF module and more can be added to the standard package.
The TP10 is an ideal choice for improving HVAC energy production and building energy efficiency in terms of heating, cooling, ventilation and air-conditioning.
