Here is a 15-minute instructional video to quickly familiarize yourself with the innovative features of the SageCom™ Validation and Configuration software for Sage thermal mass flow meters.

SageCom – What’s Different?
Those familiar with the previous renditions of the Sage software would understand that while the features were powerful, to implement them required a converter and additional software. The SageCom is the solution to providing effortless functionality.
SageCom software is installed on the user’s PC. Within the back-terminal enclosure of the Paramount flow meter, there is a mini-USB socket or connector port where the supplied cable (mini-USB to USB male) connects the meter to the PC. To launch functionality, the user simply clicks the SageCom icon on the PC, and the program automatically loads to communicate with the meter.
The additional connection between the PC and the meter is independent of the normal Modbus communication channel, which permits validation or reconfigurability of the Paramount meter even while its standard Modbus output is connected to a network of additional Paramount meters going to the SCADA system.
If you have not done so, view the above video to familiarize yourself with the innovative features of the new software which permit the user, while the meter is still in the field, to reconfigure the flowmeter (change full scale, change pipe size [4” or larger], change engineering units, and more). Also, the software permits users to change gas constituents, log real-time data, perform a loop check on the plant’s 4–20 mA, and validate the meter’s operation through three different diagnostic steps, including the Sage In-Situ Calibration Verification. Additionally, the software facilitates ease of printing a validation report which includes time and date stamps, serial numbers, and other pertinent data (ideal for QC departments, ISO requirements, or auditors). When finished, the user presses the Return button, and the totalizer counts back to its original reading before having run the diagnostics.
Paramount Thermal Mass Flow Meter
The Sage Paramount is our newest thermal mass flow meter which provides state-of-the-art components, a NEMA 4X enclosure, a fast response to rapid temperature fluctuations, and a well-thought-out terminal arrangement with a 3-way switch for externally, internally or isolating the 4-20 mA.
The Paramount is a Flow Control Innovation Awards nominee. Have you voted yet? Click to vote, now through June 30.
