1.2 Options and variants Modular signal converter concept with display The modular concept gives the opportunity to combine the IFC 050 with the flow sensors OPTIFLUX 1000, OPTIFLUX 2000, OPTIFLUX 4000, OPTIFLUX 6000 and the WATERFLUX 3000. With respect to the housing versions, both a compact and a remote design are available. The signal converter for the compact version is directly mounted under a 10° angle to the flow sensor for easy reading of the display after rainfall or frost. If the measuring point is difficult to access or if the ambient conditions like temperature effects and...

nPRODUCT FEATURES1.3 Signal converter/flow sensor combination possibilities Flow sensor 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 flowmeter The signal voltage U is picked off by electrodes and is proportional to the mean flow velocity v and...

TECHNICAL DATA 2 2.4 Measuring accuracy Every electromagnetic flowmeter is calibrated by direct volume comparison. The wet calibration validates the performance of the flowmeter under reference conditions against accuracy limits. The accuracy limits of electromagnetic flowmeters are typically the result of the combined effect of linearity, zero point stability and calibration uncertainty. Reference conditions • Medium: water • Temperature: +5...+35°C / +41...+95°F • °perating pressure: 0.-I...5 barg / 'l.5...'72.5 psig • Inlet section: > 5 DN • Outlet section: > 2 DN <D X [m/s]: flow...
