FloBoss 107 flow managerThe company unveiled a new highly scalable technology platform with the introduction of its new FloBoss107 flow manager, the newest addition to its best-in-class FloBoss Flow Manager family of natural gas and liquids flow computers. Adding to the new platform advantages, the FloBoss 107 also features new dynamic configuration software and an LCD touchpad to enhance ease of use. The new technology platform will serve as the basis for future product introductions and as an upgrade to current FloBoss legacy products. This platform uses a modular, highly-expandable architecture that consists of plug-in modules for the central processing unit (CPU), input/output (I/O), and communications. The modules plug into a four-slot base chassis. When additional capacity is needed, an expansion rack provides four additional slots for communication or I/O modules. A unique feature of the FloBoss 107 is its software configurable I/O modules that reduce the number of dedicated I/O modules required for an installation. This makes it easier to adapt I/O to the needs of the application and reduces the number of spare modules that must be inventoried. The CPU module is available with or without its own configurable I/O board, which makes a very economical solution for low point-count applications. The FloBoss 107 incorporates new easy-to-use features like a powerful LCD Touchpad and Dynamic Interface. The LCD Touchpad lets users perform many of the functions previously requiring a separate operator interface, such as a laptop. It offers a unique set of tools for security access levels, configuration, operation, and device-guided diagnostics as well as real time and historical data trending features not found on competitive units. The touchpad is transreflective for high visibility even in bright sunlight and is backlit for night viewing.
