Hoffer Flow Controls has released the HRT1, an upgrade to the popular HIT-2A Rate Indicator/Totalizer which incorporates HART® Communications Protocol. The HRT1 rate and total indicator works with Hoffer turbine flowmeters and other frequency producing flowmeters. The new HRT1 will enable the customer to communicate to a processor via software or even a handheld communicator if desired using the highly popular HART® protocol. Thus, they can adjust settings in the unit and check diagnostics. Features of the HRT1 include rate, total and grand total display, two optional alarm outputs configurable for rate and total, 20 point linearization, scaled pulse output and 4-20mA loop powered analog output. The HRT1 incorporates the latest HART® software Version 7. This software provides an upgrade and migration path to HART® wireless for future product enhancement.
