AutoXP Gas and Liquid Flow Computer FAQ
The Thermo Scientific AutoXP Gas and Liquid Flow Computer provides ultimate flexibility in a unit that can be used as a single-run flow computer or smart multi-variable transmitter. This unit can be configured for both gas and liquid applications utilizing today’s most common primary devices all while meeting Class l Div 1 requirements. Thermo Scientific flow computers are built on an innovative field proven platform incorporating the latest measurement standards and calculations for hydrocarbon measurement.
Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about the AutoXP Gas and Liquid Flow Computer.
A. Yes, the new AutoXP is engineered to meet CSA/C-US Class I, Div 1, Groups B, C, D; ambient temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F), temperature code T6 (-40°C to 75°C) T5 (-40°C to 85°C) EN 61326-1: 2013 (Industrial Criteria); FCC 47 CFR Part 15, Subpart B; ICES 003: 2016.
A. AutoCONFIG will interface with the AutoXP along with other flow computers in the AutoSERIES platform: AutoPILOT PRO, AutoEXEC and AutoLACT.
A. The AutoXP in both basic and advanced configurations comes standard with a 10 Base-T Ethernet port that allows for flexible connectivity to SCADA or other end devices with Ethernet port.
A. Yes, the AutoXP contains by default all API/AGA calculations to perform custody transfer measurement of both gases and liquids within one instrument. See data sheet or website for complete listing.
A. End users can utilize AutoCONFIG to connect directly to instrument via local connection port or via the standard Bluetooth model (Communication dongle PN: 3-0500-546 must be purchased separately.)
A. Yes, the AutoXP will accept an existing AutoPILOT Pro configuration but will not accept one from AutoEXEC.
A. Yes, as this is designed as a two run flow meter all mapping is equivalent to the first and second runs of an AutoPILOT PRO and AutoEXEC.
A. The registers for DP, SP, and Temp for these devices has been preconfigured into AutoXP so that all customer needs to do is establish connection via serial or Ethernet and poll unit for applicable floating point registers.
A. Yes, the purchase and installation of an I/O card spare kit (PN: 3-0500-308-SP) is all that is required to upgrade a unit and can be done in the field.
A. 400”wc X 1500psia (Accuracy: 0.0525% of span X 0.0550% of span respectively).
400”wc X 4500psig (Accuracy: 0.04% of span X 0.0375% of span respectively).
