Compact flowmeter opens up automation possibilities

August 31, 2009

The new Coriolis flow transmitter enables multiple parameters to be measured in gases and liquids. Thanks to its seamless integration with the manufacturer’s system, the device is easy to configure and this reduces the level of complexity in a plant. The transmitter diagnoses the plant status and has standard interfaces to communicate with the system. The device is also available as an independent unit suitable for data exchange with third party suppliers via Profibus or Modbus. The diagnostic and messaging functions are also available as individual systems. The device simultaneously monitors the flow, the measuring substance temperature, the density, the volumetric flow as well as the fractional flow with an accuracy of at least 0.1 percent. Equipped with ATEX and cUL certificates, the flowmeter covers a broad spectrum of flow applications for the majority of gases and liquids. The compact 40 mm housing as well as the 80 mm version are easily fitted into any installation.
