LIPS – massflow meter

Massflowmeter in the control panel housing

  • Processor controlled linearization
  • Taring at the push of a button
  • Bidirectional USB communication
  • Large LCD display
  • 5 selectable units
  • 6 gas standards switchable
  • 9-stage damping
  • Bluetooth interface (optional)

The devices of the LIPS series are mass flowmeters based on the calorimetric (thermal) principle and were specially designed for installation in switchboards. The devices have a large, illuminated graphic LCD for displaying the measured value, as well as an analog current or voltage output.

Based on the robust and highly precise electronics of the BOREAS series, we have developed the LIPS as a measuring device that can convince through its extensive equipment, high accuracy and versatility.
Thanks to temperature-compensated sensors and state-of-the-art process technology, the measuring curve of these devices is linearized and achieves the excellent accuracy that is characteristic of all mensaura flowmeters.

For bidirectional communication, a USB port is available, via which the devices can be configured and remote-controlled. In addition, the USB port of the digital serial output of the measured value is used. This is made possible by an integrated USB-serial converter, which can be addressed under various operating systems with free software.

The devices can be tared at the push of a button, using software or via an externally connected button.
An adjustable 9-stage damping serves to calm the display in the case of unsteady or pulsating flows.

The devices of the LIPS range offer the possibility to switch the unit of the measured value via a button or via the software. For this purpose, four additional units are available in addition to the basic unit “mln / min”.

The devices of the LIPS series are calibrated according to DIN1343 with air (0 ° C and 1013mbar), but a total of six different gas standards can be selected by software.

The illuminated display, various analogue output signals as well as the standard USB connection leave nothing to be desired when handling the LIPS.
