Overview

The Scanner Model 3100 flow computer, our most advanced flow computer, offers both the innovative cost savings of a distributed measurement network and excellence in centralized computing. Doubling as a network manager, the Scanner Model 3100 flow computer facilitates an API compliant flow computer wireless mesh network that delivers a level of economy and data integrity protection that is unmatched by conventional automation solutions.

The Scanner Model 3100 flow computer converts evolutionary and revolutionary electronic flow computing concepts into reality. In traditional measurement automation architecture, the Scanner Model 3100 flow computer extends the concept of the Scanner Model 2000 series.

In February 2018 Cameron introduced several enhancements to the Scanner 3100 including

  • Comprehensive Programmable logic control capabilities
  • Speed of sound computations for use with ultrasonic flow meters
  • Steam, hot and chilled water calculations
  • A PID controller with pulse output
  • All Scanner 3100 firmware features and upgrades are available without extra charge.

Try it out. You can experience all of the capabilities of a Scanner on line. Refer to GL18-124 on this page for more details.
