About Us

Insight Metering Systems is a division of LETD (Leading Edge Technology Development, LLC). LETD was founded by Don Augenstein and Bob Beede, two iconic engineers with extensive experience in designing, developing and distributing ultrasonic flowmeters. Don worked with Cal Hastings (Caldon) developing the very first 8 path ultrasonic flowmeter for liquid hydrocarbons. Bob as Caldon’s global distributor successfully sold thousands of meters around the world. Caldon’s LEFM multipath ultrasonic flowmeter for liquids became the world leader and the flowmeter of choice for measuring liquid hydrocarbons in Fiscal/Custody Transfer applications. During his time at Caldon, Don also developed the 8 path ultrasonic flowmeter for natural gas.
The gas ultrasonic meter was another pioneering meter, the first-to-market 8 path flowmeter for natural gas, and the first with an innovative way to isolate the transducers from the pressure containment (non-wetted). 

These two revolutionary ideas greatly improved performance, reliability and accuracy in measurement, elevated safety standards and improved/eased maintenance in the field. This new concept facilitated removal of transducers while on-line and eliminated the need for a complicated extractor tool.
