Features in detail:


In principle one can switch through to any connected unit when in network mode. One then has access to the entire enquiry, setting and log options, which one would normally have with an individual VSM-02. For example, one can find out the measurements taken by a remote VSM-02, switch the sensor disable facility on or off, upload calibrating data and so on. To each VSM-02 unit you can assign an arbitrary station name of up to 32 characters in length. This is especially useful for identifying units in larger networks.

In network mode there is the additional possibility to display all measured values of all VSM-02 simultaneously and to have them all protocolled automatically, if desired. Without exaggeration, this really is an important step towards the goal of real cost and consumption transparency in the industrial use of technical/medical gases and compressed air !

Since individual VSM-02 units can be set up in many different ways (e.g. show consumption in SCFM rather than in m³, use 32 °F for standardization rather than 15 °C and so on), it is clear that some care must be taken when directly comparing measured values from different VSM-02.

In network mode, however, all necessary conversions are done automatically, so that all measured values are presented in the physical units set up in the configuration dialog for network protocolling.

As a positive side-effect of measuring the standardized consumption over a VSM-02 network there can also be seen the actual values of line pressure, medium temperature and density (and be protocolled, if wanted).

Of course the network measurements do not only show the actual consumption, but do also query each units built-in long time consumption counter. As mentioned above, the readout of the consumption counter is also automatically converted in network mode, if necessary, in order to always make direct comparisons possible.

Direct comparisons, however, can lead to a just distribution of costs between cost centers, one of the perhaps most important objectives in plant management.
