Sierra Instruments has released a new, and free, flow totalizer software module for its QuadraTherm® 640i/780i mass flow meter. Through its QuadraTherm Software Interface Program (SIP), end users now have an efficient management tool to totalize and monetize all gases with one instrument. The flow totalizer software module leverages QuadraTherm’s high accuracy (+/- 0.5% of full scale) to give end users the most accurate totalization of multiple gases from an industrial flow meter.

There are four totalizers visible on the user interface screen of the SIP software. The user selects one to be active, and each totalizer is independent of the others, allowing users to totalize one gas, then switch and totalize another gas. As of September, all of Sierra’s QuadraTherm 640i/780i products include the totalization feature as part of the SIP software program. The feature is free of charge, and any customers with 640i/780i meters purchased prior to September 3, 2013 (firmware 1.0.73 or lower) can send their meters back to the factory for a firmware upgrade.

“Here at Sierra we are continually developing and adding value-added tools and features to our products to help our customers. The QuadraTherm SIP software flow totalizer feature all started with a customer requirement that we believe will be useful to all our flow customers,” said Scott Rouse, Vice President, Product Line Management at Sierra Instruments.
