Master-Touch - Model Series 9000MP - Multipoint Thermal Mass Flow Meter
From Multiple Sensors
Multipoint Systems are designed to measure gas flows where two or more sensing points are required due to large cross-sectional areas, such as large air intake ducts or air exhaust and flue stacks. These systems can have up to 5 sensors on each probe. Our System Control Panel (SCP) will average all sensors from all probes. Many probes can be connected to one SCP.

Multipoint Systems are designed to measure gas flows where two or more sensing points are required due to large cross-sectional areas, such as large air intake ducts or air exhaust and flue stacks. Our Series 9000MP Multipoint Systems are installed throughout the world, providing our customers with years of steady, reliable service. Coupled with our new Air Purge System, the Series 9000MP Multipoint Systems are now well-suited to an even greater variety of industrial applications. The probe design supports applications as diverse as ambient air flows in HVAC ducts, exhaust gas in large diameter stacks, boiler NOx efficiency systems and municipal waste incinerators. Our customers include environmental/HVAC system integrators, pulp & paper mills, power & energy companies, etc. across the US, Europe and Asia. The configuration and installation options support facility retrofits as well as the most modern new construction requirements.
The Series 9000MP Multipoint System includes one or more Series 9000MP Probes and a Series 9600MP System Control Panel. The 9000MP flow transmitter probe assembly is the heart of the system. The probe assembly typically has two or more flow sensors mounted in a 1½” OD probe shaft. The 9000MP probe’s sensors are removable for field replacement if one is damaged. Each sensor is matched to its own bridge board and microprocessor to function, in effect, as a complete flow meter. The linearized output signals from the multiple sensor assemblies in each probe are averaged to create one overall probe output signal.
The probe’s averaged output signal is transmitted to a Series 9600MP System Control Panel (SCP). If more than one probe is installed, the output signals from all of the probes are transmitted to the SCP for averaging to create one system output. The System Control Panel (SCP) is housed in a 12″ x 10″ NEMA 4X fiberglass enclosure. The SCP provides the power for the probe assemblies and receives the averaged outputs over a four-wire cable to each probe. It also includes its own microprocessor assembly for system-level control and flow display. The SCP provides two analog output signals (0–5 VDC and 4–20 mA), as well as RS232 & RS485 Modbus RTU communications. The 4–20 mA grand average output can drive up to 1200 ohms.
Optional Air Purge System
The optional Air Purge System (APS) provides a means of cleaning the sensors in applications where particulates cause problems. The frequency and duration of the purge cycle can be controlled externally or by using the Master-Touch™ software. The system can also be set to maintain the flow rate at its level when the purge was activated. This important option preserves the integrity of the flow rate and elapsed total data which might otherwise be compromised by the flow of the purge gas.
Below image shows the “optional” gas purge connection on the flange.
Below image shows the “optional” purge tube that runs along the probe and blows purge gas onto the sensor for cleaning built up residue.
Below image shows 4 Multipoint probes with two sensors each. Each sensor is positioned in an equal quadrant area. All probes are connected to our System Control Panel (SCP) which averages the output for all sensors.
- 9002MP = 2 sensor probe
- 9003MP = 3 sensor probe
- 9004MP = 4 sensor probe
- 9005MP = 5 sensor probe (max 5 sensors per probe)
Each sensor uses roughly .125 amps.
