Requesting a Field from a Flow Computer

Acquire must be in Admin mode to perform these steps.

Acquire provides a link to all the flow computers and can request any field in their Modbus maps. This can be a very useful diagnostic tool to make sure that the communications are working correctly and  the flow computer is returning the expected values.

1. Select ‘Flowcomputers…’ from the ‘Admin’ menu

The Flowcomputers list will be displayed:
