FT2 View is an intuitive, Windows 98/2000/XP compatible software tool that provides complete configuration and remote process monitoring functions for the FOX Model FT2 Thermal Gas Mass Flow Meter and Temperature Transmitter.
Communication via a PC serial communications port or USB converter lets you install and commission your flowmeter quickly, no matter how complex your configuration needs. Once the instrument is up and running, FT2 View lets you adjust meter configuration, evaluate transmitter alarm conditions, collect process data, and view measurements from your PC or control station.
The intuitive and easy-to-use FT2 View software gives process engineers and maintenance personnel a real-time view of process conditions from a PC.
The first window displays all of the flowmeter's parameters on the right side of the screen, and all of the process variables on the left side of the screen. The FT2 Variable data is automatically refreshed every second. The "Error Code List" button shows the error code descriptions.
Clicking on the FT2 View "Configure" button opens a window that is used to configure the meter and to make adjustments to displays, outputs, alarm settings and flow totalizer.
Saving process data to an Excel spreadsheet is initiated by selecting the "Start Acquisition to Excel File" button from the View menu. A pop-up box then prompts the user to enter a list of data codes, which are provided in a separate table titled "Thermal Mass Flowmeter & Temperature Transmitter RS232 Message Protocol".
Next, a pop-up box prompts the user to enter the sample interval time in seconds, followed by the file name. The program collects the data to the Microsoft® Excel file at the specified rate and saves it to disk every 30 seconds.
This simple, easy-to-use data logging feature helps process engineers analyze flow parameters, evaluate transmitter alarm conditions, and develop charts and graphs for performance comparisons.
