The red-y compact 2 is the unique gas flow meter with optional valve that can operate on a single AA battery, on USB power or on 24 Vdc supply.
With the touch-screen (backlight) display you can conveniently adjust lots of variables without the need of a PC, which makes the unit perfectly suited for both, portable and static applications.
The compact 2 unit is suitable for most gases in a range from 0-0.01 to 0-450 ln/min (air), available in different materials/elastomers and can be supplied with an advanced alarm module with 3 contact relays.
The new firmware adds value and can simply be installed by any existing user by downloading the automatic install software on your PC and connecting the compact 2 with a simple Micro USB cable. Except for a performance update the following new firmware features:
Automatic Screen Adjustment
The compact 2 has automatic position recognition and thus will turn its display depending on the orientation of the instrument (0, 90, 180, 270 degrees) or in a fixed position if preferred. The major advantage is that you can use the meter in any position you choose.
In vertical mode it perfectly mimics a VA meter visually, but gives you all the advantages of a digital thermal mass meter such as pressure and temperature compensation, higher accuracy, better rangeability, and more. Thus you can install the instrument in existing gas panels, no matter whether the gas supply is from left, from right, from top or from bottom.
Measurement Performance Setting
In normal operation the unit switches to an ECO mode when you use it on battery only. It is now possible to set the measurement performance (number of samples per second) manually independent of the power source. This creates the possibility for more measurements per second, improving the speed of response and totalizer accuracy.Click here for further information and the service tool for the firmware update Click here for related articles onlineFind manufacturers of flow meters in our Equipment Guide
