Learn how the Smart Interface Portal (SIP) makes setup and diagnostics on the InnovaSonic 207i ultrasonic flow meter a breeze. Sierra’s Scott Rouse will guide you through set up utilizing the Quick Start, EnergyPro and ValidCal apps. He’ll also take you on a tour of the other SIP menus and screens available for more detailed control of your flow meter.

[Video Summary]

Our Smart Interface Program software apps are a suite of applications that we've developed that make setting up, and programming, and then reviewing the data for the InnovaSonic 207i a real breeze. The Quick Start App for flow measurement takes you through set up in 12 easy steps.

If you're making an energy measurement, you can use the EnergyPro setup app to set your energy measurement up. The EnergyPro is divided into three steps that will get you up and running quickly.

There is another app, ValidCal, which runs through and tests all of our hardware to make sure that it's functioning correctly. Simply select the ValidCal application and then validate. It will read the configuration of the meter and check each of the components to ensure that their functionality is there. It looks at the relay output, the open collector transistor output, the analog outputs, the Ultrasonic PCA, current inputs, the PT100 inputs, the Modbus inputs, whatever configurations you may have.

At this point, we've used the Quick Start app to set the flow portion up, we've used the EnergyPro app to set the energy measurement up, we've validated it with our ValidCal diagnostic, so we know we have a healthy meter that's measuring flow. However, there are other menus and screens we can look at with the meter control system. The master display screen gives you a summary of everything that the meter is reading. You can look at the sensor signal health, which basically tells you everything there is to know about to sensor signal itself: its gain, its quality, the signal to noise ratio. This is a very good screen for diagnostics if you're having difficulty getting a healthy signal.

Finally, the Master Setup menu. This particular menu shows, in more detail, all of the setup that we've done previously. The pipe setup gives you an idea of how in detail it can go. You can also do the same thing with the fluid and flow rate setup. You can setup your totalizer. If you have a positive totalizer or negative totalizer, you set all that up with the flow totalizer setup quick start.

Energy setup, we've reviewed that, but here it is again. You can go into more detail, same with the PT100 and the 4-20 analog input.
There are various inputs and output we can configure: a relay output, an OCT-open collector transistor output, and 4-20 analog outputs. Meter tuning, meter display, meter fit: those are similar to what we looked at when we did the Quick Start, but you can look at them in more detail here. And finally, our digital communications input and outputs. There is a data logger; you can set that up to look at data over time, look at graphing. There is the RS-232 port; you can setup the various bod rates and so forth that you're using. Same with Modbus.

Finally, flow batching. We can use flow batching to use our relay to turn external valves on and off, turn the totalizer on at a certain point and turn it off at a certain point and other things. The Master Setup menu gives you more in-depth access to those various features. As I've given you a tour of the meter control buttons, there's one last one and that allows you put everything back to factory default if you need to recover and start over.

All of the setup with the Smart Interface Program can be done through the keypads, including putting the signal into the goal posts and that part of the setup that's all mirrored in the push buttons. Obviously, setup is a lot easier to do with the Smart Interface Program. Use it and you'll be up and running in no time.
