RHECom Software

The RHE26 transmitter is a fully featured device with many sophisticated functions and configuration is necessary for proper performance of these functions. RHECom software is available in three versions – Free, Pro and Pro+. RHEComFree is available for download at no extra cost or on USB flash drive. RHEComFree allows full setup of transmitter parameters and includes a useful datalogging function for monitoring performance of the meter.

For a small one-time license fee, RHEComPro and RHEComPro+ offer additional insight and setup convenience menus. RHEComPro includes data logging, trending and broad diagnostic capabilities. RHEComPro+ takes flow meter management one step further with a revolutionary fully functioning simulator application. With the simulator, you can trial run your application from the convenience of your office, adjusting transmitter settings, setting alarms and filters, and creating transmitter configuration files for upload into the actual unit. The simulator is also ideal for training – it exactly mimics the front panel of the instrument display and buttons when clicked and includes controls for adjusting flow, density and temperature readings just like the unit was in line!

Electrical connection to transmitter compatibility

Electrical connection option selections are compatible with the transmitter range according to the following table. Note that economical blind front versions of some transmitters are available where displays and keypads are not required. The wide range of Rheonik sensors and transmitters provide tremendous options for system designers and end users alike.

Standard Operation Package (Part Number Code SO)

The RHE26 Standard Operation Package provides the following measurement and function features:

Mass flow is calculated using the Coriolis principle to provide a high accuracy Mass Flow measurement of the fluid flowing through an Omega Tube Coriolis Meter.

Temperature Measurement

Each Omega Tube Coriolis Sensor provides a temperature measurement from built in sensors.

Fixed and Calculated Density Function

The Fixed Density function allows to enter a fixed density value for volumetric flow calculations. The Calculated Density function allows density to be generated based upon process temperature. A base/reference density at a known temperature is entered for the fluid being measured along with a coefficient describing the change in density per temperature unit. The firmware in the transmitter calculates flowing density based upon this information to use for volumetric flow calculations.

Calculated Actual Volume Measurement for Liquids and Gas

Volume measurement is calculated by dividing direct mass flow measurement by the Fixed Density.

Standardized/Normalized Volume Measurement for Gas

This function calculates the volume of gas passing through the meter at standard conditions. The density of the gas at standard conditions is entered into the transmitter and the volume is calculated using this in conjunction with the flowing mass.
