The New U1000MKII-HM is a “best value” clamp-on, ultrasonic heat meter alternative to traditional inline energy meters, for energy management and billing applications in domestic and commercial, district or shared heating or cooling systems. Micronics says it provides significant installation cost and dry maintenance benefits over traditional in-line products.
Micronics has built on its U1000 heat meter range to develop a MKII version, which extends the pipe size to cover applications from 22mm – 180mm (6”) OD pipe.
And while 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 drain-down required plus dry servicing, providing minimum downtime and maximum availability.
