  • Gas volume totaling
  • Fixed factor correction
  • Non-volatile memory for storing values and data
  • Optical communication port for reading/writing of values
  • Eight item programmable display • Magnetic switch to change display values

Optional Features:

In addition to the standard functionality of the basic configuration, the following options can be added:

  • Temperature correction using a temperature probe mounted in the gas flow
  • Volume and alarm pulse outputs
  • Push button to change display values
  • Gas Micro electronic volume corrector (EVC)
