Siemens adds mobile app for flowmeters

Siemens Industry Automation has introduced an application that enables direct communication between an Apple iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) and its clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters.

The Sitrans Connection Apple iOS communication app and any Sitrans F US clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter. This is said to enhance all metering functionalities, including programming, operational review, data logging and download.

The new app provides greater mobility, making connectivity possible without the need for a laptop computer, said Siemens.  It also features full menu visibility and a complete alphanumeric keypad for easier navigation and programming, especially of meters with limited displays.

Another feature is that the app provides Siemens technical experts with a live link to the meter for instant diagnostic review and programming, reducing the need for on-site service.

Sitrans F US clamp-on US flowmeters are used in various industries, including oil and gas, water/wastewater, HVAC, power generation, chemical and petrochemical.
