Sierra introduces Smart-Trak 2 flow meters and controllers
May 28, 2009 – Sierra Instruments introduced Smart-Trak 2, a significant re-design of their flagship Series 100 Digital Mass Flow Meters and Controllers. The result of over five years of user feedback, new features of the Smart-Trak 2 have added even more control, independence and flexibility. Sierra also introduced the Compod, a Smart-Trak 2 add-on that expands networking, streamlines and simplifies functionality and reduces costs.

Expanded Functionality of Smart-Trak 2 Includes:
  • True linear performance provides high accuracy and great flexibility in multiple gases
  • With Dial-A-Gas Technology, users select from up to ten pre-programmed gases or substitute their own
  • The ability to adjust calibration in the field for each of these 10 gases independently
  • Unique Pilot Module (mounted or hand-held) lets users view and change critical control functions in the field
  • Proprietary frictionless-hovering direct-acting control valve technology
  • MODBUS RTU networking capability with Sierra Compod

    Ideal for OEM, industry, or research applications, it builds upon the performance and user-friendliness end-users came to expect with the original Smart-Trak. Smart Trak 2 provides the most advanced linear sensor available, smoother valve performance, more robust electronics and more control over a wide range of functions.

    With its advanced capabilities, the Compod, coupled with Sierra’s Smart-Trak Model100 mass flow meters or controllers, greatly simplifies basic flow control installations and permits networking of multiple instruments using open-source MODBUS RTU protocol.

    By adding the Compod module to a new or existing Smart-Trak, end users can take complete control of gas mixing and blending, batch control, leak testing and process monitoring.
