Tools to Help You Size and Select Meters and Valves
We offer several software tools to help you and your customers select a meter or valve to meet specific needs and properly size the instrument for optimal performance.
PresoCalc sizing software is a simple tool that sizes a wide variety of differential pressure (DP) flow meters. Badger Meter offers four types of DP meters: Gemini (a cone technology), COIN (a wedge technology), Ellipse (a Pitot tube technology) and a full line of Venturi designed meters. The new PresoCalc is a powerful tool that allows customers to size DP meters for a wide selection of media. Find it on any of the Preso product web pages.
RCVcalc software guides specifiers through selecting the right control valve given the unique process requirements of a plant or application. With more than 2000 different media available and the ability to create customized media, plus automatic phase identification, RCVcalc provides accurate and meaningful valve sizing information to better reflect the system parameters of individual applications. Find it on any of the RCV product web pages.
RCT Selection Tool
RCT Selection Tool is designed specifically for the RCT1000 Coriolis line of flow meters. Especially for Coriolis meters, it's important to always size the sensor to the application—not the pipe size! The tool asks a series of questions to help determine the ideal meter size and type for a given application. Upon completion, the software will provide the ideal configuration and return a personalized report containing details, such as pressure and accuracy charts, flow range specifications, and more. Find it on any of the RCT1000 Coriolis product web pages.

Frequently Asked Questions
A: The HR-E encoder utilizes the Industry Standard ASCII protocol. See the HR | E High Resolution Encoder Product Data Sheet for more information.
Q: Can I get a digital output from the HR-E LCD 4-20?
A: No, the HR-E LCD 4-20 provides an ASCII encoder output as well as a 4-20 analog output. See the HR-E® LCD 4-20 Encoder Product Data Sheet for more information.
Q: The display on my HR-E LCD keeps changing. What are the different screens displaying?
A: The display on the HR-E LCD encoder rotates through these screens; 9-digit consumption for 45 seconds; 6-digit consumption (segmented leak detector in this mode) for 5 seconds; Rate of flow for 5 seconds; Meter model displays for 5 seconds See the HR-E® LCD Encoder Product Data Sheet for more information.
Q: I have an HR-LCD 4-20 scaled/unscaled. Will it provide a digital output?
A: Yes, The HR-LCD 4-20 scaled/unscaled can provide a digital/pulse output as well as 4-20 analog output. See the HR-LCD 4-20 Scaled-Unscaled Register Product Data Sheet for more information.
Q: My HR-E LCD register came programmed for a Recordall M25 disc meter. Can I change it to work on a different meter?
A: You can use the field programming kit to program the HR-E LCD register for use on any Recordall Series meter. See the HR-E® LCD, HR-E® LCD 4-20, HR-LCD 4-20 scaled/unscaled Programmer Manual for more information.
A: You can clear the Empty Pipe error by purging all air from the line or installing the meter so the pipe remains completely full. See the user manual for installation guidelines. See the ModMAG M-Series M2000 Product Data Sheet for more information.
Q: Can I connect my ORION Cellular, ORION Fixed Network (SE), ORION Migratable (ME), or ORION Classic (CE) to my M2000 ModMAG?
A: Yes, as long as the M2000 has firmware version 1.10 or higher. Through the ADE output on the M2000 meters, the meter is capable of connecting to the ORION Cellular, ORION Fixed/Migratable, and ORION Classic endpoints.
