Product Description
2.1.2
Ultrasonic transducers
The FLOWSIC600 ultrasonic transducers are optimized to suit your application requirements. The high quality of the transducer design provides the basis for accurate and highly
stable propagation time measurements with nanosecond precision. These transducers are
of an intrinsically safe design ("ia", with Equipment Protection Level Ga).
2.1.3
Signal processing unit
The Signal processing unit (SPU) contains all the electrical and electronic components for
controlling the ultrasonic transducers. It generates transmission signals and analyzes the
received signals to calculate the measuring values. The SPU also contains several interfaces for communication with a PC or standardized process control system.
The volume counters, log books (errors, warnings, parameter changes) and datalogs are
stored in non-volatile data memory (FRAM) together with a time stamp (Logbooks  pg. 118,
7.2.) On system restart, the counter readings that were last saved are restored as the start
values for the volume counters. The FRAM backup provides an unlimited number of writing
cycles and protects the saved data for a minimum of 10 years.
The SPU is equipped with a front panel containing a two-line LCD to display current
measured values, diagnostics and logbook information ( Figure 2). An LED display is
optionally available. The values to be displayed can be selected using a magnetic pen without removal of the window cover .

Operating modes, meter states and signal output
The FLOWSIC600 has two operating modes ( pg. 16, 2.2.1):
● Operation
● Configuration Mode
In Operation Mode, the meter can have the following meter states ( pg. 17, 2.2.2):
● Measurement valid
● Chck request
● Data invalid
2.2.1
Operation mode and configuration mode
The meter can be operated by the user in two modes: Operation Mode or Configuration
Mode.
Operation Mode
In Operation Mode, the meter runs in one of the three aforementioned meter states,
depending on the measuring conditions.
Configuration Mode
The Configuration Mode is used to modify parameters that directly influence the measurement and to test the system and output signals. Configuration Mode forces the meter into
the meter status "Data invalid" and the digital output "Measurement valid" is deactivated.
Invalid measured values may be produced. The system continues operation using the
current sample rate and executes all calculations as in the Operation Mode. Frequency
output and analog output may represent test values and do thus not necessarily indicate
measured values. Any parameter modifications are applied immediately to the running
calculations with the following exception: changes of the sample rate or of the configuration of the serial interface are applied after the meter is switched to Operation Mode.
Subject to change without notice
If the meter is in Configuration Mode and there have been no activities either
on the LCD display or via MEPAFLOW600 CBM for more than 15 minutes, the
meter automatically switches to Operation Mode.

FLOWSIC600 · Operating Instructions · 8010125 V 4.0 · © SICK AG
Product Description
Meter states
2.2.2.1
Status: Measurement valid
The meter status "Measurement" is the standard meter status of the FLOWSIC600.
Frequency outputs and current output are updated cyclically and indicate the actual
volume and volume flow rate. In addition, the analog signal can indicate the actual flow
rate, corrected volumetric flow rate, SOS (speed of sound) or VOG (velocity of gas). The
digital output "Direction of flow" is updated in accordance with the direction of the
volumetric flow. The digital output "Measurement valid" (active) represents the status of
the measurement. Positive (forward) and negative (reverse) volumetric flow rates are
integrated and saved in separate internal memory sections.
The MODBUS interface allows the query of all parameters and signals at any time without
interfering with the function of the system.
Each measurement initiated by the system controller includes one full transit time
measurement with, and one against the direction of flow on each path. The result of each
measurement is written to a mean value memory to be used in further calculations. The
size of this memory block and thus the device response delay can be modified through the
parameter in register #3502 "AvgBlockSize". If no result can be calculated due to poor
signal quality, this measurement is registered as an invalid attempt in the mean value
memory. The mean value is formed in a variable averaging process including all valid
measured values in the memory.
If the number of invalid measurements on a path exceeds a predefined limit (Reg. #3514
„Performance“), the measuring system activates the meter status "Check request".
2.2.2.2
Status: Check request
This meter status becomes active if one measuring path has failed and the adaptive path
failure compensation has been activated. The multi-path FLOWSIC600 system is able to
compensate for this failure. Measurement is continued with reduced accuracy and the volume is still counted in the volume counters. If a path fails while the path failure compensation is not active, the measuring system will activate the "Data invalid" status.
Moreover the meter status "Check request" becomes active when the system alarms 2002
("No HART communication to temperature transmitter"), 2003 ("No HART communication
to pressure transmitter"), or 2004 ("Maximum pulse output frequency exceeded") become
active (table  pg. 118, 7.2.1).
2.2.2.3
Status: Data invalid
If the quality of received signals is deficient in one or more measuring paths or the logbook
is full or the measured value is out of the calibration range, the SPU must mark the
measured value invalid and activate the meter status "Data invalid". The measured volume
is counted in the error volume counter. However, the SPU will cyclically attempt to reestablish valid measurements. As soon as the signal quality and number of valid
measurements meet the required criteria, the SPU will automatically change back to the
"Measurement valid" or "Check request" status.

Self-diagnosis with User Warnings
During normal operation, the ratios of sound and path velocities, amplification values, performance, and signal-to-noise ratios are continuously monitored. If these values exceed
set limits (customized User Warning limits), a warning signal will be generated. This allows
immediate measures to be taken to address a problem which could potentially impact
measurement quality. A message in the Warning Logbook documents the time of the event
and the specific User Warning limit which was exceeded.
● The "Warning" signal does not affect the functionality of the meter.
● All User Warning parameters - except for the parameter ‘Min. VOG for warnings" - can be configured in the User Access Level "Operator" and without
switching the meter to the Configuration Mode.
A User Warning becomes active only if a User Warning limit has been continuously
exceeded for a certain time (specified in the parameter "Warning duration and averaging
for warnings" in the Configuration tab of User Warnings).
During commissioning or operation, the User Warning limits can be adapted and activated
or deactivated in the "User Warnings" window in MEPAFLOW600 CBM to suit individual
application requirements ( pg. 72, 4.7.1).

Logbooks
Important system events are stored in three logbooks in the SPU memory of the meter.
Each logbook entry consists of a running index number, the event, a time stamp and the
acknowledgement status. Entries in Custody logbook [1] and Warning logbook [2] also
include the volume counter readings valid at that time. The events are logged continuously
in order of occurrence into one of the three logbooks:
● Logbook 1 (Custody logbook [1], max. 1000 entries)
● Logbook 2 (Warning logbook [2], max. 500 entries)
● Logbook 3 (Parameter logbook [3], max. 250 entries)
Every logbook has its own index counter. Logbook entries are classified on the LCD display
according to the event type.

Logbook overflow
NOTICE: TYPE APPROVAL
If a FLOWSIC600 is configured as a custody meter, the volume counters stop if
Custody logbook [1] and/or Parameter Logbook [3] is full. The meter status
"Data invalid" is activated. The measured values are now counted in the error
volume counter.
If the FLOWSIC600 is not configured as a custody meter, all logbooks are per default configured to be overflowing. This means the index number continues increasing, and after the
logbook has reached its maximum number of entries, each new entry overwrites the oldest
entry.
If the logbook overflows, the oldest data will be lost. Regularly saving the
logbook entries to the database via MEPAFLOW600 CBM ( pg. 94, 5.4.1) and
deletion of entries in the meter itself prevents data loss. If entries are deleted
via MEPAFLOW600 CBM, the logbook index counter on the meter is reset.
Index counter overflow
The index number displayed in the LCD display runs up to 9999 and then overflows. In
case of an index overflow, all logbook entries are deleted and all logbook index counters
reset.

DataLogs1
For firmware version 3.4.03 and higher, the FLOWSIC600 provides two DataLogs (Hourly
Log and Daily Log). They save averaged measured values and are stored in the SPU‘s nonvolatile memory (FRAM). All data can be downloaded and exported to Excel files with
MEPAFLOW600 CBM ( pg. 97, 5.4.2.1.).
The following sections describe the default configuration of the DataLogs. The
DataLogs can be configured to best suit your application  pg. 75, 4.7.2.2.
2.4.3.1
Hourly Log
The Hourly Log logs hourly diagnostic values by default (dataset type "Diagnostic
Values", pg. 50, Table 11) for the forward flow. As long as the flow is valid and the VOG is
above Vmin all diagnostic and flow values are averaged over one hour and saved every full
hour. The Hourly Log stores these values for more than a month (38 days) by default. They
are then overwritten with new values.
2.4.3.2
Daily Log
The Daily Log logs the daily volume counter values by default (dataset type "Volume Counters"  pg. 50, Table 12) for the forward flow. All flow values are averaged over one day and
saved at the (configurable) Accounting Hour ( 2.8.3.6). The Daily Log stores these values
for approximately 2 years by default (1 year and 361 days). They are then overwritten with
new values.
DataLog Storage Cycle
Hourly Log and Daily Log can be configured to save entries in a storage cycle of: 3 min, 5
min, 15 min, 30 min, 1 hour, 12 hours or 24 hours.
If a DataLog is set to a Storage cycle of 12 or 24 hours, the accounting hour takes effect.
2.4.3.3
DataLog storage behavior
Hourly Log and Daily Log can be configured for the following storage behavior:
● Overflow (Default)
● Stopping
Storage Behavior "Stopping"
If a DataLog is configured with the storage behavior "Stopping", a warning will
be shown in the Meter Status Table when the DataLog is full. See  pg. 90,

Product Description
2.4.4
Diagnostics Comparison Log1
The Diagnostics Comparison Log provides a comparison between current diagnostic values (current fingerprint) and those of a reference time (reference fingerprint, for example,
at time of commissioning). Since the diagnostic values (dataset type "Diagnostic Values",
see Technical Information  Table 11) are velocity-dependent, it is necessary to use a velocity-adaptive comparison. Five gas velocity range classes are calculated from the velocity
range of the meter. The current diagnosis values are stored in Current Classes 1 to 5, while
the reference values are stored in Reference Classes 1 to 5.
Reference values are collected after the meter has been commissioned or after the
classes have been cleared. Reference values are stored in the Reference Classes 1 to 5. If
a Reference Class is filled with an entry, the next valid entry is stored into the same velocity
range but in the corresponding Current Class (e.g. if Reference Class is filled, the next
value from within this velocity range will be stored in Current Class 1). During operation,
the Current Classes are continually overwritten with new entries. The Reference Classes
stay unchanged until they are manually cleared.
Per default the Diagnostics Comparison Log operates bidirectional, saving separate data
for both flow directions. The values are stored in the gas velocity classes 1 to 5, depending
on the gas velocity.

Transport and storage
WARNING:
Only use lifting gear and equipment (e.g. lifting straps) which is suitable for the
weight to be lifted. Max. load information can be found on the type plate of the
lifting gear. It is strongly recommended to use only the eye bolts when lifting
the meter by itself. To lift the FLOWSIC600 please pay attention to Figure 7.
During FLOWSIC600 transport and storage operations, make sure that:
 The meter is firmly secured at all times
 Measures are taken to avoid mechanical damage
 Humidity and ambient temperature are within specified limits ( pg. 113, Table 9).
If the device is to be stored outside for more than one day, sealing surfaces of the flanges
and the interior of the meter body must be protected from corrosion, e.g. with Anticorit
spray (not required for stainless steel meter bodies). The same measure shall be taken if
the meter is to be stored in dry condition, but for more than a week.

Installation
3. 2
Installation
Generally, the installation arrangement is specified during the project planning phase,
before installation of the system. Nominal size, material and type of flange should therefore be in accordance with the design of the measurement facility. It is particularly
important that the meter inlet and outlet is of the same internal diameter as the adjacent
piping.
Fastening bolts, nuts and flange seals used must be suited to the operational conditions,
and comply with legal regulations and relevant standards.
The installation requirements were evaluated according to the flow
disturbance sensitivity tests according to
● OIML R 137-1&2, 2012 "Gas meters", Annex B and
● ISO 17089-1, 2010, "Measurement of fluid flow in closed conduits ultrasonic meters for gas - Part 1: Meters for custody transfer and
allocation measurement.", 5.9.3 Installation requirements and flow profile
considerations.
Any deviation from the planned design of the FLOWSIC600 and installation
arrangement shall be agreed upon with the supplier and documented prior to
installing the meter.
Measuring location
General requirements:
● The FLOWSIC600 can be installed in customary straight inlet and outlet pipes. The
adjacent pipes must have the same nominal size as the meter body. The internal
diameter can be obtained from the table (see Technical Information) based on the
flange rating and the Standard. The max. permitted difference of the internal diameter
of the inlet pipe from that of the meter body is 3%. Any welding beads and burs on the
flanges of the inlet pipe shall be removed.
● The meter body may be installed in a horizontal or vertical position. In case of horizontal
installation, the meter body shall be aligned so that the planes formed by the
measuring paths are in a horizontal position. This minimizes dirt in the pipeline from
entering the transducer ports. Vertical installation is only possible if the measuring
system is used for dry, non-condensing gases. The gas flow must be free from any
foreign material, dust and liquids. Otherwise, filters and traps shall be used.
● Do not mount equipment or fittings which may adversely affect the gas flow directly
upstream the FLOWSIC600.
● Seals at the flange connections between meter body and pipeline must not protrude
into the pipeline. Any protrusion into the flowing gas stream may change the flow profile
and thus the measuring accuracy may be adversely affected.
● Pressure transmitter shall be connected to the pressure tap provided ( pg. 14, Figure 1).
The pressure tap can be a 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 inch NPT (female) port, depending on meter
size and customer requirements.
● For the leak-proof connection on the pressure line, a suitable thread sealing agent (e.g.
PTFE tape) must be used when the pressure connection adapter is screwed in. After
Installation and Commissioning the leak-tightness must be checked. All leaks must be
repaired. Temperature probes shall be arranged as shown in  Figure 8 and  Figure 9.

Operating conditions for the ultrasonic transducers
The FLOWSIC600 is designed for use in hazardous areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres only under normal atmospheric conditions. The atmospheric conditions must
be within the following ranges:
– Ambient pressure range 80 kPa (0.8 bar) to 110 kPa (1.1 bar)
– Air with normal oxygen content, typically 21% v/v
The ambient temperature must be within the range specified at the SPU type plate,
e.g -40°C to +60°C.
Once the FLOWSIC600 is installed in the pipeline, the meter body becomes a part of the
pipeline. The wall of the pipeline and the meter body is then deemed a zone-separating
barrier. The figure below helps in understanding the different situations for a possible
application and shows what operating conditions apply.

Additional requirements for operation of ultrasonic transducer in Zone 0 classified
areas
The FLOWSIC600 is marked with a minimum rating of II 1/2 G Ex [ia] or Gb/Ga Ex [ia Ga].
Operation of ultrasonic sensors in Zone 0
The ultrasonic transducers are suitable for operation in Zone 0 at atmospheric conditions,
i.e. ambient temperature -20 °C to 60 °C and ambient pressure 0.8 bar to 1.1 bar(a). If
ultrasonic transducers with titanium housing are to be used in Zone 0, it must be assured
that the medium does not transport solid parts (like dust or other particles) which could
cause an ignition hazard. Otherwise, transducers made from stainless steel must be used.
After installation and following every de-installation and reinstallation of the ultrasonic
transducers, the seal effect must be appropriately checked. During operation, the leaktightness must be periodically checked and the seals replaced if necessary. After deinstallation and before every reinstallation the seals must be replaced according to the
original assembly. Seals can be ordered from SICK (part number and serial number from
type plate at SPU).

NOTICE:
The rise in the ambient temperature outside the pipeline due to a hot pipeline
must be taken into account.
The user must ensure that the ambient temperature around the electronics
housing does not exceed the maximum permitted ambient temperature
marked on the type plate of the FLOWSIC600.

Installation
Terminal assignment
The terminal assignment in the SPU terminal box (see  pg. 43, Figure 14) is the same as for
the installation of the FLOWSIC600 in non-hazardous areas (see table  pg. 44, 3.4.5).
NOTICE:
For measurement reasons, the equipotential bonding must, as far as possible,
be identical to the pipeline potential or protective ground/earth. Additional
grounding with the protective conductor via the terminals is not permitted!
The connections of the ultrasonic transducers are intrinsically safe and are safely
separated from one another and from other non-intrinsically safe circuits. The transducers
may be connected and disconnected during operation as long as the safe separation of
circuits has been preserved in every respect. In order to ensure this, the respective
transducer connection cable should be disconnected at both ends (disconnect the
electronics side first, and then if necessary, the transducer side unless the MCX connector
is suitably fixed to prevent any uncontrolled movement). Operation using sensors or cables
not part of the original delivery or with sensors/components from other manufacturers is
not permitted.

Notes for safe operation in hazardous areas
WARNING:
Always observe the temperature specifications for use in hazardous areas.
Approval of the ultrasonic transducers in zone 0 is only valid for operation
under atmospheric conditions.
● Explosion protection: II 1/2G Ex de ib [ia] IIC T4 or II 2G Ex de ib [ia] IIA T4
● Ambient temperature range is from -40°C to +60°C.
● If terminals are assigned with intrinsically safe circuits, it is recommended that the
metal cable glands be replaced with the light-blue plastic ones
● The type of protection for the field connections and power supply connection is
determined by the external circuits that are connected (for options see "Connection
options" above).
● Safety-relevant data for intrinsically safe circuits is provided in the EC Type Examination
Certificate and the IEC Certificate of Conformity.
● Ensure that the cover on the power supply connection is properly sealed. In intrinsically
safe installations, the terminal box can be opened and cables connected and
disconnected while the system is live. In this case the safe separation of the circuits
from each other must be observed.
● If the meter body is insulated, the insulation thickness must not exceed 100 mm. The
SPU housing must not be insulated.
● The standard paint of the FL600 meter body consists of a double layer: Epoxy and
Acrylic RAL9002. This combination is the ideal protection of the meter body against
corrosion. The layer thickness is less than 0.2 mm.
WARNING: Explosion Hazard

General notes
Before commissioning, all activities described in the chapter  »Installation« must be
completed. It is recommended to use a laptop/PC with MEPAFLOW600 CBM software
installed for the commissioning ( pg. 59, 4.3). The commissioning should be documented
with a Commissioning Protocol. The document "FLOWSIC600 Commissioning Protocol" is
content of the FLOWSIC600 shipping on paper and on the product CD.
The FLOWSIC600 is ’wet’ or ’dry’ calibrated when delivered to the end user. The ’dry’ calibration consists of the 3-D measurement of the meter body, zero-flow and speed of sound
test, and other system specific inspections/tests which belong to the manufacturing and
quality assurance process. The ’wet’ calibration is performed at a flow calibration test
stand (calibration test facility).
All parameters, determined by the aforementioned tests, as well as design specific data
are preset and stored in the FLOWSIC600 in a non-volatile memory before delivery. The
design-specific data, which is known before manufacturing the device, will not be changed
during commissioning. This is of special importance if the FLOWSIC600 is officially sealed
after an authorized flow calibration. Generally, the parameters are protected by a
password. Additionally a Parameter write lock in the SPU prevents custody relevant
parameter changes.
NOTICE: Type approval
If the FLOWSIC600 is to be used for custody transfer applications, each
change of parameters and of the Parameter write lock has to be agreed to by
the applicable national authorities.
Subject to change without notice
In all other cases the output parameters of the FLOWSIC600 can be adapted on site by
trained staff.
Commissioning the FLOWSIC600 involves the following steps, regardless of whether the
device is installed at a test facility or at the final measuring location:
● Connecting the FLOWSIC600 to a PC or Laptop ( pg. 57, 4.2)
● Connecting to the FLOWSIC600 with MEPAFLOW600 CBM ( pg. 59, 4.3)
● Identification ( pg. 65, 4.4)
● Field setup ( pg. 67, 4.5)
● Function test  pg. 69, 4.6,
● Optional additional setup ( pg. 72, 4.7)
● Activation of path compensation ( pg. 83, 4.8)
● Sealing ( pg. 84, 4.9),
● Documentation ( pg. 84, 4.10)

Connecting the FLOWSIC600 via RS485 / RS232 cable
Interface sets for the connection of the FLOWSIC600 with a PC via serial or
USB-interface can be ordered from SICK. See  pg. 58, Table 3.
The FLOWSIC600 serial interface conforms with the RS485 standard. An RS485 /RS232
cable and a 1:1 interface cable (pin 2 – pin 2 and pin 3 – pin 3) are required for data
transfer to PC or laptop (see  Figure 17). Because MEPAFLOW600 CBM, the operation and
diagnosis software for the FLOWSIC600, does not support RTS/CTS data transfer, the
adapter must be able to distinguish between transmission and reception mode
automatically. We, therefore, recommend the use of a serial interface set available from
SICK.

Connecting the FLOWSIC600 via RS485/USB converter
If the PC/laptop does not offer a RS232 serial interface, a USB interface can be used. An
appropriate USB converter is necessary to transform the signal for the RS485 device
interface. The USB converter available through SICK contains a CD-ROM with a software
driver which must be installed before an online connection between the FLOWSIC600 and
the MEPAFLOW600 CBM software can be established.

● The Ethernet connection requires firmware V3.3.05 or higher. It provides
the required generic MODBUS protocol on the interface for the MODBUS
TCP adapter.
● The FLOWSIC600 must be connected to a MODBUS ASCII/ MODBUS RTU to
MODBUS TCP adapter, which is connected to a network via Ethernet and
receives a - preferably permanent - IP address.
● The PC with MEPAFLOW600 CBM V1.0.47 or higher installed must be
connected to the network and have uninhibited access to this IP address.
Preparations for online connections via Ethernet
 Make sure one of the serial ports (terminals 33/34 or 81/82) of the
FLOWSIC600 is configured to use Generic MODBUS RTU or Generic
MODBUS ASCII (NOT a SICK MODBUS protocol).
 Make sure the serial port is configured so that the highest baud rate is
used (56000 baud).
 Connect a MODBUS RTU/MODBUS ASCII to MODBUS TCP adapter to the
serial port according to the manual of the adapter.
 Connect the adapter cable to your network.
 Make sure the network assigns a permanent IP address to the adapter.
 Configure the adapter to the network settings (IP address / protocol /
baudrate / gateway etc.) that you want to use (refer to adapter manual).
 Make sure the PC with MEPAFLOW600 CBM has access to the adapter‘s IP
address.
 Make sure you know the MODBUS bus address of the meter.
In case of problems with the network setup, refer to your network administrator.

Function test
The major system parameters are configured at the factory. The default settings should
allow error free operation of the FLOWSIC600. Nevertheless, correct meter operation
should be verified on site when the meter is installed and is subject to actual operating
conditions.
4.6.1
Function test on FLOWSIC600 with LCD front panel
The FLOWSIC600 is functioning correctly, if the standard display shows two pages of
measurands and current readings and the pages alternate every 5 seconds. (For operation
and menu structure of the SPU with LCD see Technical Information )
If a current error or warning is active, the display will be interrupted by an error message
every 2 seconds. As soon as the cause of the error/warning has been rectified, the
FLOWSIC600 automatically returns to the standard display.
If the logbooks contain unacknowledged errors, warnings or information, the corresponding letter is displayed in the upper right hand corner and flashes. The letter stops flashing,
once the message has been acknowledged in the logbook. It disappears when the entries
have been cleared from the logbook.
Detailed information on errors is available in the logbook (see  pg. 94, 5.4.1 und see Technical Information ). See chapter  »Troubleshooting«.
You are advised to check the plausibility of the measured and diagnosis
values, even if the device is functioning properly (see chapter  »Maintenance«).
4.6.2
Function test on FLOWSIC600 with LED front panel
Subject to change without notice
The FLOWSIC600 is functioning correctly when the green status LEDs for each measuring
path installed start flashing periodically approximately 30 seconds after the power supply
is switched on.
If the yellow LED flashes, the FLOWSIC600 works in the operation state ’’Check request’’
with an insignificantly reduced accuracy (e.g. if one path fails).
If the yellow LED lights up permanently, the measurement is invalid. In this case, the error
must be diagnosed (see Chapter 8 of this Manual).

Function test with MEPAFLOW600 CBM
Performance check
 Once the facility is flowing at the initial flow rate, go to the "Meter values" page to check
the performance of the meter. The performance value should be at least 75% on all
paths. If the velocity of gas is greater than 30 m/s (100 ft/s), the performance values
may be significantly lower.
 Check the Main system bar for system alarms (the symbol on the button "System"
should be green) and warnings (the symbol on the button "User" should be green)
( Figure 25). If there is a yellow or a red symbol, proceed as described on  pg. 100, 6.1.
Zero phase check
 Use the "Path Diagnosis" wizard ( Figure 25) to check the "Zero Phase" parameters of
both transducers on each path (path 1, 2, 3, 4).
Properly adjusted zero phases of the individual paths are the basis for accurate transit
time measurement of the ultrasonic signals. The "Zero Phase" parameter of a path is
properly adjusted, when the green cursor in the signal window is symmetrically within the
two dotted red limit lines and the red asterisk is positioned exactly on the second positive
zero crossing of the received ultrasonic signal ( Figure 26).

Figure 26
Signal window displaying ultrasonic signal in the "Path Diagnosis" page
 Go to the "Meter values" page to check that the measured SOS values are almost the
same at all paths of the FLOWSIC600, and that they differ by less then 0.1%
( Figure 27).
 Switch between display of absolute and difference SOS by clicking the right mouse
button on the SOS graph and using the context-menu.
In the case of very low gas velocities (< 1 m/s or 3 ft/s), there may be more
significant differences between the paths due to thermal stratification. In this
case, the SOS on the upper paths (1 and 2) will be higher than the lower paths.
 Check that the measured SOS deviates no more than 0,3% from a theoretical SOS,
which is calculated from gas composition, pressure and temperature ( pg. 87, 5.2.1).

Configuration of DataLogs
4.7.2.1
Using the DataLogs
Starting with firmware version 3.4.00, the FLOWSIC600 provides two DataLogs (Hourly Log
and Daily Log). They save averaged measured values and are stored in the SPU‘s nonvolatile memory (FRAM). All data can be downloaded and exported to Excel files with
MEPAFLOW600 CBM ( pg. 24, 2.4.4.).
Subject to change without notice
Valid flow for DataLog logging
Gas flow values are averaged for the DataLog entry only if VOG is above the
"Min. VOG for warnings" ( pg. 72, 4.7.1) and the flow is in the direction for
which the DataLog was configured. The Flow Time saved for every entry
indicates about how long the gas flow was valid for DataLog Logging during the
storage cycle. For example:
● If the flow was above "Min. VOG for warnings" and in the forward direction
(for a forward configured Hourly Log) for half an hour, the corresponding
Hourly Log data will show a Flow Time of 50%.
● If the flow was above "Min. VOG for warnings" but in the reverse direction
(for a forward configured Hourly Log) for an hour, the corresponding Hourly
Log data will show a Flow Time of 0%.
● If the Flow Time is 0%, all diagnosis related values are shown as 0
(Temperature is 0 Kelvin). Meter Status and Volume Counter values are
shown as usual.

Configuring and using the Diagnostics Comparison Log
The Diagnostics Comparison Log can be used to get information on changes in the meter‘s
health (more information  pg. 24, 2.4.4): The Diagnostic Comparison Report, created from
the data of the Diagnostics Comparison Log, facilitates an easy and quick information
about changes in the meter health between two different points of time (e.g. commissioning and now) (see Technical Information Diagnostic Comparison Report Check).
4.7.3.1
Using the Diagnostics Comparison Log
The Diagnostics Comparison Log provides a comparison between current diagnostic
values (dataset type "Diagnostic Values", see Technical Information) and those of a reference time (e.g. at time of commissioning). The current diagnosis values are stored in Current Classes 1 to 5, while the reference values are stored in Reference Classes 1 to 5.
To prepare the Diagnostics Comparison Log for the future use, complete the following
steps when the FLOWSIC600 is running under normal operating conditions:
 Go to the "DataLogs" page (choose "Meter / DataLogs" from the menu)  pg. 76,
Figure 28.
 In the "DataLog" selection dialog, activate the check box for "Diagnostics Comparison"
[DataLog1], to download the Diagnostics Comparison data from the meter.
 Click "Export Datalogs" and export the Diagnostics Comparison Data to an Excel File for
future reference.
 Clear all Diagnostics Comparison Log data that may have been collected from the
meter during calibration:
 Choose the "Configuration" tab (see  Figure 28).
 Switch the meter into Configuration Mode (select File/Configuration Mode from
menu).
 Click the "Clear Diagnostics Comparison" button and confirm the confirmation
dialog with "Yes".
 Switch the meter into Operation Mode.
 If possible, operate the meter in the Velocity Range Classes 1 to 5 (also see  pg. 79,
4.7.3.2) to fill the Reference Classes with data representing the correct operation of
your installation.
Subject to change without notice
Filling the velocity range classes with valid flow data
● Only stable gas flow conditions will be used to calculate the averaged data
in the Diagnostics Comparison Log. Therefore the set gas velocities should
be well within the class limits and should stay relatively stable for the time
set as storage cycle (default is 5 minutes).
● The parameter DataLogClassStdev (Reg. #3050) sets the allowed standard
deviation for the definition of the gas flow conditions as stable  2.4.3.4.

When the reference classes are filled with data representing the usual operation of the
installation, the current classes will be continuously updated, showing the current state of
the meter. Use the Diagnostics Comparison Report (see Technical Information)  pg. 181,
6.4.3, to detect changes in the meter between the diagnostic values in the reference
classes and those in the current classes.
4.7.3.2
Configuring the general conditions for the Diagnostics Comparison Log
The gas velocity class ranges are calculated to optimally cover the operation range of the
meter. The lower limit of the gas velocity range classes is defined by the parameter "Min.
VOG for warnings". The upper limit is defined by "VOG limit".
 View the Diagnostics Comparison data tab, to find the velocity class limits calculated
for the meter.  Figure 4, S. 24 shows an example of a Diagnostics Comparison Log filled
with entries.
 If necessary, configure "Min. VOG for warnings" and "VOG limit" to fit the application
range of your specific FLOWSIC600 on the configuration tab of the User Warnings
window ( pg. 72, 4.7.1).
● Changes to the parameters "Min. VOG for warnings" or "VOG limit" will clear
all data from the Diagnostics Comparison Log!
● Note that the parameter "Min. VOG for warnings", Reg. #7208
"PathCompClassLow", plays an important role in path compensation (see
Technical Information).
● Note that the parameter "VOG limit" also defines the limit for User
Warnings.

Activation of path compensation
If the status bit "Path compensation valid" is "active", then the FLOWSIC600 is able to
compensate a path failure­.
The meter automatically sets this bit to "active" after operating for about 20 minutes with
error free measurement at all paths at a gas velocity between 1 to 8m/s (3.3 to 26.2 ft/s)
and also about 20 minutes at a gas velocity higher than 8m/s (26.2 ft/s).
The status bit "Path compensation valid" is displayed on the "Meter status" page ( pg. 83,
Figure 30).
Determination of path relationships during commissioning
Due to the unique path relationships of each individual installation, every
meter must determine the path relationships during the commissioning
procedure.
In order to ensure that the system is able to compensate for path failure at
both high and low flow velocities, it is recommended that the FLOWSIC600
meter be run for 20 minutes at low gas velocities (< 8 m/s or < 26.2 ft/s) first
and then for 20 minutes at high gas velocities (> 8 m/s or > 26.2 ft/s) during
commissioning.

5. 1
General
The FLOWSIC600 does not contain mechanically moving parts. The meter body and ultrasonic transducers are the only components that come into contact with the gaseous
media. Titanium and high-quality stainless steel ensure that these components are
resistant to corrosion, provided that the meter is installed and operated in accordance with
the relevant specifications. This means that the FLOWSIC600 is a low-maintenance
system. User Warning Limits can be configured to provide early warnings for possible
issues with contamination or blockage. Maintenance is limited mainly to routine checks to
determine the plausibility of the measured values and diagnostic results produced by the
system.
It is recommended that Maintenance Reports be created and filed on a regular basis
( pg. 92, 5.3). This creates a basis of comparable data over time and helps when a problem
requires diagnosis.
The operating conditions (gas composition, pressure, temperature, flow
velocity) of the individual Maintenance Reports should be comparable or
documented separately and taken into account when the data is analyzed.

Routine checks
The information displayed on the front panel LCD display of the FLOWSIC600 meter can be
checked to ensure that the system is functioning properly. The MEPAFLOW600 CBM software provides a more user friendly way for doing routine checks.
5.2.1
Comparing theoretical and measured Speed of Sound (SOS)
One of the most important criteria for the correct operation of an ultrasonic gas meter is
the consistency between the theoretical SOS, calculated for the actual gas composition,
temperature and pressure, and the SOS measured by the ultrasonic gas meter.
The Speed of Sound Calculator (SOS Calculator) available in MEPAFLOW600 CBM
calculates a theoretical SOS for a specific gas composition at a specified temperature and
pressure ( Figure 31). The calculation of thermodynamic properties is based on the "GERG2004 XT08 Wide-Range Equation of State for Natural Gases and other Mixtures". The
algorithms that are implemented in the SOS calculator were developed by the RuhrUniversity Bochum (Germany).

Maintenance
 Enter the gas composition and specify temperature and pressure for your specific
application.
 Click the "Calculate" button.
 If the SOS calculator was started from the Maintenance Report, the calculated value is
automatically copied to the corresponding field in the wizard and to the report.
 Compare the theoretical SOS with the SOS measured by the FLOWSIC600 (see
Figure 32, main system bar).
The deviation between both should be less than 0.1%. If the deviation exceeds 0.3%,
check the plausibility of temperature, pressure and gas composition. Otherwise proceed
according to  pg. 87, 5.2.1.
Subject to change without notice
It is possible to set up a user warning to continuously monitor for a deviation between a
theoretical SOS (written to the meter e.g. by a flow computer) and the current measured
SOS. See -> Section Commissioning, Optional setup of user warnings.

5.2.2
Checking the meter health
The FLOWSIC600 monitors its own meter health with User Warnings and system alarms. If
the outputs are configured to indicate alarms and / or User Warnings, it is not necessary to
manually check the meter health.
To get visual feedback about the meter‘s health, the "Main system bar" in MEPAFLOW600
CBM provides a compact overview:
 Use MEPAFLOW600 CBM to connect to the meter ( pg. 59, 4.3).
 Check the main system bar for any yellow or red icon ( Figure 32). A red or yellow icon
indicates a potential problem with the meter.
If any of the icons in the main system bar are yellow or red, proceed with checking the
"Meter Status" ( pg. 101, 6.2.1) and the "User Warnings" ( pg. 103, 6.2.2).

5.2.3
Time synchronization
All entries in logbooks or datalogs saved in the meter‘s memory (FRAM) are written with a
time stamp containing the meter time. The meter time can be synchronized with a master
clock (e.g. PC clock) via MODBUS or with MEPAFLOW600 CBM.
A synchronization causes a logbook entry in the Custody logbook [1] only if the
time change is greater than 3% of the time elapsed since the last
synchronization.
Synchronization via MODBUS
The date and the time of the FLOWSIC600 can be set separately by an external write. Each
operation for date and time causes a separate entry in the Custody logbook [1].
Alternatively the synchronization function can be used. To use this method, the date (Reg.
#5007 "Date") and the time register (Reg. #5008 "Time") must be written sequentially
within 2 seconds. The date register must be written first. The write operation can be
accomplished by the MODBUS without setting the FLOWSIC600 into Configuration Mode.
:
Time synchronization via MEPAFLOW600 CBM
MEPAFLOW600 CBM offers a synchronization function via a button in the "Meter
Information" screen ( Figure 33). The button is marked with a yellow sign calling attention
to the synchronization if the time difference between the meter clock and the PC clock is
greater than 30 seconds.

Battery lifespan / capacity
The Real Time Clock (RTC) of the FLOWSIC600 is buffered by a battery. The manufacturer
states that the battery life span is at least ten years. The remaining battery capacity can be
viewed on the LCD in the first menu level (see Technical Information).

Because the FLOWSIC600 has no regular maintenance cycle, the system alarm "Battery
lifetime" is generated when the remaining battery life is less than 15%. This alarm forces
the operator to change the battery ( pg. 101, 6.2.1). A logbook entry is also generated.
Optionally, the user can choose an additional user warning for the battery lifespan (see

 To export DataLog data to an Excel file (.xls), use the button "Export DataLogs".
For more options and configuration, see Technical Information.
Meter status
In every DataLog entry, a condensed meter status information is saved. It
shows all meter status information that became active during the storage cycle
- even if it was for the shortest period of time.
If a meter status information bit is shown active in a DataLog entry, the
logbooks will contain a corresponding entry with more information.
 Always check the logbooks, if you require more information about the meter
status information in the DataLogs.
Flow weighted diagnostic information in DataLog data
The datasets do not contain any diagnostic information for gas velocities
below the value for the parameter Vmin (Reg. #7036 "LowFlowCutOff"). The
"Flow time" value shows, for what percentage of the duration of the storage
cycle the flow was above Vmin and in the flow direction specified for the
DataLog.
All diagnostic information is flow-weighted.
Clearing entries from DataLogs
If the DataLogs are configured with the storage behavior "rolling", it is not necessary to
clear the entries from the DataLogs on the meter. When the DataLog is full, new entries will
overwrite the oldest entries.
If a DataLog is configured with the storage behavior "blocking", the DataLog will stop saving new entries when it is full and a yellow light will indicate the full DataLog on the meter
status table ( pg. 101, 6.2.1). In this case it is recommended to clear the entries from the

Generation of a Diagnosis session
If it becomes necessary to generate a Diagnosis session for remote support, follow the
procedure described below:
 Start the MEPAFLOW600 CBM software and establish an online connection to the
meter (see  pg. 59, 4.3 for all necessary preparations).
 Choose "Tools / Diagnosis session" from the menu or click the "Diagnosis session" item
in the Key navigation ( Figure 43)

 Specify a file name. (The file path is set according to the program settings. If necessary,
specify a different path.)
 Click the "Save" button.
 MEPAFLOW600 CBM will now download the logbooks from the meter and generate a
Diagnosis session with all relevant data. The entire process usually takes about three
minutes. If the logbooks contain a lot of entries, the process may take longer.
 Email the Diagnosis session file to your SICK representative for support.

Meter connection troubleshooting
Meter not found at initial connection/connection lost during session
 Check all cables and the hardware. Check also the correct installation of the adapters
(see  pg. 57, 4.2.1 and  pg. 58, 4.2.2).
 Attempt to re-establish connection via "Connect to Meter" window.
 Use the options in the window displayed to make MEPAFLOW600 CBM search with
wider options (  Figure 44), especially if parameters (e.g. the baud rate) may have been
changed.
If necessary, the RS485 ports can be assigned to a specific bus address (Reg.
#5020 "DeviceBusaddress"). The service port always has the bus address "1".

● Any flow rates given above are also valid in the bidirectional mode.
● G-classes marked with an asterisk (*) must only be used in configuration No. 2 (see
 pg. 33, 3.2.2).
● G-classes marked with an (E) have an extended max. flow rate (max. flow velocity vmax =
36 m/s) related to commonly established turbine meter G-classes.
● The transition flow Qt is based on the flow range the meter is designed for according to
the main plate. It is:
- for a flow range of
1:20
Qt=0.20 Qmax and
- for a flow range of
1:30
Qt=0.15 Qmax and
1:50
Qt=0.10 Qmax
- for a flow range of

● Higher values for Qmin and lower values for Qmax are admissible provided that
Qmin 0.05 Qmax.
● Another meter factor is admissible if the frequency at the pulse output is selected
<6 kHz for 1.2 Qmax.
