Bronkhorst introduces new features in industrial gas flow meters

Bronkhorst High-Tech of The Netherlands presents the IN-FLOW series of mass
flow meters and controllers featuring a rugged, IP65-rated dust-proof and
waterproof design. 

Available for flow ranges from 0.05-1 mln/min up to 200-10000 m³n/h air-equivalent,
the IN-FLOW series flow meters come with optional ATEX approval for use in
Category 3, Zone 2 hazardous areas and are now offered with FM approval for
Class I, Division 2 to meet the needs of the North American market.

commissioning. The flexible architecture of PROFINET with its comprehensive
scope of functions enables innovative and cost-saving machine automation
delivering maximum performance and precision, flexible address assignment and
modular design, fast commissioning thanks to open access and defined interfaces,
and optimal diagnostics of devices as well as the network.
