Magnetic f low meters – dosing the right quantity!
The newest addition of Smart Magnetic flow meters was launched by ifm electronic at SPS Drives in Germany. Facilitating dosing, flow & temperature metering of water based media right down to tiny ranges that fall between 0.005…3 Litres per minute! And at the other end of the scale, <900L/min.
These robust, compact IP67 f low meters, constructed of 316SS, are easy to install & commission, featuring high accuracy & consistent repeatability in virtually any application where the medium ranges between 0…60 deg.C. This makes them ideal for dosing applications of make- up water in the Food & Beverage applications, metering refrigeration system chilled water, or accurate metering of plant process f luids in water treatment plants. Etc.
All SM series magnetic f low meters, 2x independent outputs, so one can meter f low, while transmitting the process medium temperature, or switch a low f low point.
Output One maybe used to meter f low rate, volumetric pulse output, or used as a signal output for a pre- set counting. While the second output maybe be used to measure f lowrate, medium temperature, or as a pre- set switch point. Commonly, the meter is used to meter f low metering & to measure the medium temperature, meaning one sensor gives t wo process measurements. Another 1st from ifm!
The bright 4- Digit alphanumeric LED display & local push buttons make parameter setting simple. And for those wanting to employ the “Smart Sensor” capabilities, outputs can be fed directly into a Smart IO block for interface with common bus system EtherNet/IP, Profibus, Modbus TCP. Thuis makes wiring fast & far more efficient where multiple instruments are used in one area, remote to the PLC.
