The Model FT1 is a multiple award winner due to its innovative design elements such as the DDC-Sensor™ technology platform that allows it to operate using the Gas-SelectX® gas menu selection tool.
The free FT1 View™ software from Fox Thermal is a great way to connect to the Model FT1 from a PC or laptop to access the meter settings in a quick and visually appealing way. This software offers:
Note: For FT1 View™ software to function, please be sure to have a working version of Microsoft® Office installed on the PC before installing FT1 View™.
USB Driver and the Fox Thermal FT1 View™ Software
A USB driver is needed for FT1 View™ to run. If the USB drive does not install automatically, you will need to download it by following this link. Instructions are included on how to install it correctly.
Flow meter accuracy is often dependent on achieving a uniform flow profile near the center of the pipe. Distortion and swirl are disturbances in flow that can be remedied either by extending the length of space between the cause of the disturbance and the sensing element (increasing straight pipe runs) or by adding a flow conditioner to correct the disturbance. Flow conditioners installed upstream of flow meters reduce the need for long, straight pipe runs. Common Features for Fox Thermal FC20 Flow Conditioner:
CAL-V™ is a Calibration Validation test feature available on the Model FT1 Thermal Mass Flow Meter. This test does the following:
Use this test according to the manufacturer’s instructions in order to validate the calibration of the meter.
CAL-V™ in FT1 available starting in firmware v6.0.
The Gas-SelectX® feature is a revolutionary new feature that allows the user to have a meter capable of measuring more than 10 different gases accurately. The user can choose from the list of gases below or mix any to create a custom gas mix specifically for their application! Gases currently available with Gas-SelectX® on the FT1 include:
The Gas Mixes are programmable in 0.1% increments and up to five of the gases listed above can be mixed. The Gas-SelectX® feature can be accessed through the front panel of the meter or by using the free FT1 View™ software tool.
*Natural gas refers to pipeline-quality dry natural gas. Fox Thermal uses the NAESB standard as the default composition for natural gas in the Pure Gas menu of Gas-SelectX®. Naturally occurring gas - from oil fields commonly referred to as Associated Gas – may have a different percentage of gas constituents in its composition. Use the Mixed Gas Menu in Gas-SelectX® to program the correct percentages of the natural gas or contact Fox Thermal for further information.
