Multiprocessor capability Whatever your needs, you’ll find the FloBoss S600 fits the bill perfectly. With a 50MHz Intel 486 microprocessor and math coprocessor at its heart, and six microprocessors on each I/O board, it has the processing muscle to provide fast, accurate calculations. Its modular design and exceptional connectivity give you superb adaptability. Reduced support costs The S600 is designed to be used either as a stand-alone solution or as a system component. The Intelligent I/O board fits both gas and liquid applications and supports two streams and a header. Using the same board, up to six streams and two headers can be configured using all common flowmeter types such as orifice, ultrasonic, turbine, positive displacement and coriolis. There is no need for multiple cards for different applications.

FloBoss™ S600 Time saving options In addition to its high computing power and extended capabilities, the FloBoss S600 is extremely easy to set up and use. The unit is supplied with the Config 600 configuration package which gives you fast, intuitive control from a PC. Featuring Windows compatibility, this package allows you to implement a wide range of time-saving options, such as templatebased programming and instant configuration, plus automatic generation of documentation, reports, modbus registers and front panel displays. Novice and expert modes The FloBoss S600 allows both the novice and expert user to develop a configuration to meet specific needs. It has all of the capabilities you would expect from a high-end flow computer: scaling, I/O assignment, constants, communications, etc., are easy to access and modify.

And there is much more. Using IPL 600, the Interactive Program Loader (a component of Config 600), the user can upload existing configurations for additional customization or to clone additional machines. In short, the FloBoss S600 setup package will not only boost your productivity, it will reduce your support and maintenance costs as well.

In today’s oil and gas industry, speed, accuracy and stability are key requirements - which is why we built the FloBoss S600 using the most advanced technology available. Multi-Processor Technology Using a multiple processor approach, for example, very high calculation speeds are achieved (e.g. AGA8 in 40mS), while a highaccuracy analog-to-digital converter autocalibrates every cycle against a high-stability reference. Distribution of the processing workload means that performance is maintained, even with a full loading of six streams. Local processing also means that fast PID loops can be implemented for control purposes.

FloBoss™ S600 Connecting to the future

Multiple communications The FloBoss S600 offers two RS232 ports with handshake signals and three differential communications ports. Each of these three ports can be independently configured point-to-point (RS422) or multi-dropped (RS485), supporting both two-wire and fourwire protocol. In addition, there is a 10BaseT (Twisted Pair) Ethernet interface utilizing TCP/IP protocols for flexibility and network connectivity. Data can be retrieved and presented in DDE format allowing custom reports to be prepared using various applications, including Microsoft Excel. Future proofed The processor bus is IEEE standard to allow easy upgrade when it becomes necessary. Code is written in ANSI C for the Intel Processor for maximum portability. The PC 104 bus means that cards from over 250 suppliers, with communications and data storage capabilities, can be added to further enhance the FloBoss S600s already impressive capability.

Additional MM1


With the FloBoss S600, you don’t have to worry about the future. With its modular design and wide range of communications and expansion options, you’ll find that it can easily be adapted to your requirements, however they might change.
