1.1 The more than economical solution The IFC 100 electromagnetic signal converter is designed to measure the flow velocity, conductivity, volume and mass flow of electrically conductive, liquid media. The signal converter can be combined with any measuring sensor, making it very widely used. In terms of available housing versions, there is a compact variant, in which the signal converter is connected to the measuring sensor, as well as a 0° and 45° version. If the measuring point is difficult to access or the ambient conditions prevent the use of the compact variant, the signal converter...

Remote version in wall-mounted housing For temperature effects, vibration or in places that are difficult to access, remote installation is possible with the IFC 100 W. A signal cable is used to connect the measuring sensor and the converter for the purposes of power supply and signal processing. The electronics can be used in all housing versions without having to be reconfigurated. (signal converter in wall-mounted housing) Diagnostics The IFC 100 has been equipped with a wide variety of diagnostic tools for device function and application check. • Conductivity measurement • Electrode...

1.3 Signal converter / measuring sensor combination possibilities Measuring sensor Measuring sensor + signal converter IFC 100 Compact (0°/45° version) Remote wall-mounted housing 1.4 Measuring principle An electrically conductive fluid flows inside an electrically insulated pipe through a magnetic field. This magnetic field is generated by a current, flowing through a pair of field coils. Inside of the fluid, a voltage U is generated: U=v*k*B*D in which: v = mean flow velocity k = factor correcting for geometry B = magnetic field strength D = inner diameter of flow meter The signal voltage...

Operating conditions Temperature Process temperature Refer to technical data for the measuring sensor. Ambient temperature Depending on the version and combination of outputs. It is a good idea to protect the converter from external heat sources such as direct sunlight as higher temperatures reduce the life cycle of all electronic components. Ambient temperatures below -25°C / -13°F may affect the readability of the display. Storage temperature Pressure Medium Refer to technical data for the measuring sensor. Ambient pressure Chemical properties Electrical conductivity All media except for...
