However, the BEM 500 can do much more: In addition to the flow rate, two temperature inputs are also available. The respective sensors are installed directly in the flowmeters. With the measured temperature in the supply and return lines, the measured volume is compensated according to a stored curve of the medium.
As with the BEM 300, the BEM 500 uses complex algorithms to calculate the "effective" flow rate, less any return flows that may occur (e.g. due to pulsation in the line). As with the BEM 300, this requires the use of a second sensor on the flowmeter to detect the direction of flow.
A Modbus output is available for the output of all raw and calculated data.
