Clamp-on from Micronics
The New U1000MKII-HM from Micronics is a clamp-on ultrasonic heat meter alternative to traditional inline energy meters, for energy management and billing applications in domestic and commercial projects.
The U1000MKII-HM can be used for district or shared heating or cooling systems and offers significant installation cost and dry maintenance benefits over traditional in-line products.
And whilst the U1000MKII-HM can still be used as a stand-alone product, in the all important area of connectivity the new product supports optional Modbus RTU slave and RS485 serial communications for aM&T or BEMs systems with Mbus communication coming shortly.
The MKII also incorporates a new cross correlation flow measurement system and 1Mhz transducers to improve performance on poor older thick wall pipes and larger pipe-work, now up to 180mm (6”) OD!. And there is also a new water/glycol option for chilled water applications.
Still simple to install: connect power and enter the pipe inside diameter, adjust the sensors and clamp-on the pipe with no specialist skills or tools required but now with a wider range of application the MKII heat meter offers a clamp-on non-invasive alternative to traditional in-line meter installation, with no draindown required plus dry servicing, providing minimum downtime and maximum availability.
