Recently Bronkhorst launched a new app called FlowSuite to monitor and service their digital flow meters. As Product Manager Industrial Communication, Control & Customer Software, Ahad Djafari was one of the key figures involved in developing this app. In this blog, Ahad explains why he embarked on developing this agile software tool with a team of R&D colleagues and external experts.
This blog is based on an interview by Carolien Meijer, Manager Strategic Marketing, and Lynn Woerts, Online Marketeer, about the lessons learned.
In our everyday world, devices are evolving and becoming more intuitive in use, whether these are vacuum cleaners or smart watches. Consumers are more and more accustomed to ‘plug-and-play’ products, and this is no different in industrial environments. There was therefore a desire to develop a new functional software tool to easily monitor and service flow meters.
In my previous role as Technical Sales Engineer for Customised Flow Solutions at Bronkhorst, I supported customers in their start-up phase using flow meters to optimise their process, as well as troubleshooting and commissioning. I discovered that most engineers are eager to get the functional process up & running but are less interested in the parameters of the specific components in the process during the start-up phase. I kept that experience in mind and used it as input for the specifications of the new software tool.
Besides my own experience, we also observed and interviewed our own field service engineers and end users. The team concluded that the app should be able to detect and monitor multiple flow meters simultaneously and that it was important for end users to have several languages to choose from.
Now that FlowSuite has been released, the team is already working on some add-ons: easy-to-use configuration tools to support more complex processes, like precise batch dosing of additives.
With FlowSuite, it is possible to monitor, configure and optimise Bronkhorst digital instruments via a single interface. The software is versatile with many useful features, such as a display with multiple graphs, easy device configuration and real-time logging of measured data in a CSV file.
The modern user interface is adaptive and available in English, French, German, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. FlowSuite is available from the Microsoft store and is therefore easy to install and update
The physical properties of a fluid are an important aspect when using gas conversion models for thermal mass flow meters. To calculate these physical properties Fluidat was developed, using the ideal gas law.
FLUIDAT is Bronkhorst’s online calculation software. It allows our end users to make many theoretical calculations for their instruments and also have access to over 800 different fluid properties and corresponding data.
Data acquisition is frequently used in R&D. E.g. to calculate the air permeability of a fabric.
I have been working with analytical chemists for a long time, whenever that happens it gives you a unique insight into the challenges they face and the methods employed to overcome them.
