Rheonik RHE42 Coriolis Mass Flow Transmitter

With its advanced digital signal processing capability and in conjunction with our sensors, the RHE 42 can achieve an ultimate mass flow measurement uncertainty of 0.05 %, making it ideal for both filling and bottling or any kind of high accuracy/reliability plant flow or density measurement. Connectivity includes a full suite of communications buses including Foundation Fieldbus and Modbus TCP/IP. The RHE 42 is a well-specified transmitter relevant for large-scale plant and project opportunities.

RHECom Software

The RHE42 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!
