MacBAT 5

PLUM ELECTRONICS
gas volume and energy
corrector

gas volume and energy corrector with 4G LTE Cat.1 modem

The MacBAT 5 corrector offers PTZ, PT, or T type corrections. The device is powered by an internal battery with the option of external power connection. MacBAT 5 converts gas volume measured by a rotary, turbine, or ultrasonic gas meter to base conditions.

The gas compressibility factor is calculated using algorithms: SGERG-88, SGERG-mod-H2, AGA92-DC, AGA8-G1, AGA8-G2, AGA NX-19-mod, or a constant value of the compressibility factor K1.

MacBAT 5 is an intrinsically safe device that can be installed in Zone 0 explosive hazard areas.

why is it worth
choosing MacBAT 5?

  • allows remote gas volume data reading
  • prevents discrepancies in gas meter readings and the corrector
  • detects reverse flows
  • conducts measurements every second
  • supports the most popular digital communication standards
  • is intrinsically safe
  • operates for 14 years without battery replacement
  • stores data for 10 years
  • offers intuitive operation and configuration via NFC with a phone

the application of the MacBAT
volume and energy corrector

direct data transmission to the system

Reading data through the built-in 4G/2G modem with battery power supply.

remote
data reading

Connection via the communication interface INT-S3 and the built-in 4G/2G modem.

local reading
and configuration

connecting MacBAT 5
with a rotary gas meter

Connecting MacBAT 5 with a turbine gas meter using an external pressure sensor PLUM. Connection via 2 x LF ensures precise synchronization between the gas meter and the corrector, taking into account volume reversals on the gas meter.
