Itron expanded its thermal energy metering portfolio with its new static flow meter for thermal energy commercial and industrial (C&I) applications. The Axonic meter is a static ultrasonic flow meter designed to meet the needs of district heating and cooling applications. The meter will be marketed globally.
In combination with a connected Itron thermal energy calculator, the ultrasonic static flow meter features intelligent diagnostic functions to control and optimize the entire thermal energy system. The meter continually monitors operating conditions and, in the case of abnormal conditions such as back-flow or air in the pipe, sends an alert.
The Itron Axonic meter features two output ports and also provides the option to add a second device, such as a heat control system or backflow monitor.
