AE Turbinator

Outside viewAutomation Electronics Turbinator


The AE Turbinator is designed for facilities where there are large numbers of individual turbine meter runs. Each AE Turbinator scales and displays flows from up to 64 individual turbine meter runs.

Since one unit can operate up to 64 meters, the cost per run can be greatly reduced over individual meter totalizers. This saves on equipment costs when measuring a large number of individual flows.

A color touch screen display provides the operator with an intuitive, easy to operate view of the flow rates and totals. The AE Turbinator has advanced features beyond the normal flow rate and total. These include a large digit color touch screen display, graphical flow rate charting, and flow rate and system event logging.

By adding a radio to the AE Turbinator, it can also interface to a variety of Host computer systems using the widely supported MODBUS communication protocol.
