New readout unit for on-line viscometers

23 June 2009

Hydramotion launched a new signal processor/readout unit for its range of viscometers, offering an easy-to-read display. The VP550 connects to any Hydramotion viscosity measurement transducer.

The VP550 series provide clear displays that show measured viscosity and viscosity corrected to a user-defined reference temperature. User-friendly software offers rapid access to functions or parameters for configuring or updating the system. Menu navigation is via a simple keypad. No programming is required.

A range of inputs are accepted, including temperature, which can be shown in either Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F). The user can select from a range of standard viscosity units including centipoise (cP), pascal-seconds (Pa·s) or centistokes (cSt) as desired. Conversion to other units is also possible.

The VP550 unit is ingress protected to IP68, making it suitable for installation in industrial environments. There are three user-selectable 4-20mA analogue outputs, all fully configurable, as well as an RS485 serial data link for remote viscosity monitoring and control. The optional USB output facilitates direct connection to a PC or laptop.
