Measurements of the rate or volume of fluid flow may be desirable or even mandatory for operations involving the transport, manufacture, or storage of various fluids. Where conventional electronics or other circuitry are provided for performing various functions related to the fluid measurement, power must be provided to operate them. In some applications, an independent power source may be readily available for supply the fluid meter. However, in other applications, such an independent power source maybe unavailable, impractical, or too costly. Batteries offer only a limited solution due to their typical limitations, such as battery life, cost, and reliability in harsh environments.Therefore, a fluid meter capable of performing fluid measurements while also providing the power necessary for those measurements would be highly desirable, as it eliminates the cost and inconvenience of independent power sources and batteries. The Hengstler Self-Powered Counter (SPC) is just such a product! SPC provides the benefits and advantages of a conventional, industrial fluid meter while supplying its own power, making it the ideal, cost-effective solution for harsh environments, especially where a power source is lacking. The self-powering feature also ensures that the meter can be replaced at any time without metering data loss.
