Leslie Controls Introduces New SDM 5000 Flow Computer

—Literature Available— The Commander SDM 5000 Flow Computer, a total energy management information center for calculating pressure and temperaturecompensated flow, has been introduced by Leslie Controls, Inc., Tampa, Fla. The new unit is designed to be used as a stand-alone flow computer, or in communication with a host computer.

Leslie Controls is a leading manufacturer of steam control valves, regulators, water heaters, instrumentation, viscosity control systems, microcomputer flow measurement systems and other related products in the field of steam management. The SDM 5000 represents the newest addition to the company's Commander series of flow measurement systems. It is designed to measure flow, pressure and temperature in a single pipe and can be programmed to measure saturated steam, superheated steam, natural gas, compressed air, liquids, kilowatts and BTUs.

Whether used as a stand-alone flow computer, or in communication with a host computer via RS232C, or modem, it permits the user to remotely access all important operating information. Bi-directional communication also allows the user to control the information needed, i.e., analysis of all inputs, calculated valves and calibrated data. Operators can change span, calibration data and alarm settings.

The SDM 5000 offers these additional features and benefits: use of approved ASME or AGA equations for mass flow calculations which prevent entry of inaccurate equations; built-in digital milliamp meter on each input for calibration and troubleshooting; parallel printer port, enabling the user to log all information for use in energy management or cost analysis; information advance feature, allowing the operator to advance through the display and view the current status of all transmitters; alarm indicators for flow, pressure and temperature can quickly isolate operating problems and reduce downtime for troubleshooting components.

As part of the overall Commander series turnkey program, Leslie Controls offers full installation of equipment, service contracts and continuous follow-up of all system operating components.

Founded in 1900 as The Leslie Company, Leslie Controls has its corporate offices and plant in Tampa, Fla., plus a network of sales representatives throughout the U.S.

and the world.
