F-Series - Field mount indicators

General Information

Introduction

F-Series

The F-Series product range offers you an extensive selection of field mount indicators, transmitters, controllers and monitoring systems for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurement in safe and hazardous area applications. It is so rugged, even a truck can even stand on it! Once familiar with an F-Series product, you can program ALL models in ALL series without a manual: "know one, know them all".

Especially in harsh weather conditions like rain, snow, salty atmospheres and temperatures between -40°C up to +80°C (-40°F up to 176°F).

F-Series fieldmount

The ruggedness of the IP67 (NEMA Type4X) F-Series resists even the most extreme weather conditions like rain, snow, sun, salty atmospheres or temperatures as low as -40°C/-40°F or as high as +80°C/+178°F without expensive protective cabinets. The F-series is so rugged, you can even stand on it.

The mounting possibilities of your F-Series are extensively diverse: Simply attach it in panels, to walls or pipes or even directly onto outdoor sensors. In fact, mounting, installing and programming your F-series is so unparalleled easy and user-friendly, it can be done swiftly by your own crew, saving yourselves all the costs and troubles of arranging expensive specialists. Experience like many all over the world before you: You've got to have a Fluidwell!

Easy and multi-applicable More >>

Easy menu structure

The F-Series is outstanding user-friendly. Configure with a simple, logical menu-driven structure, instead of with difficult hardware changes or actions. With alphanumerical descriptions of each setting instead of confusing abbreviations and difficult codes. Once familiar with an F-Series product, you can program ALL models in ALL series without need for a manual: Know one, know them all! Save on programming costs and time with Fluidwell, each time you modify product settings.

The functionality coverage of the F-Series is impressive: Within the product overview you can get flow computers, process controllers, indicators, totalizers, batch controllers, transmitters and monitoring systems for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurement in safe and hazardous area applications.

All applications are unique; therefore no two technical requirements are the same. The F-Series offers you multiple combination possibilities for sensor in- and outputs, power and sensor supply. With this variety of combinations, there is always an F-Series that meets your technical requirements!
But what product is the perfect fit your application? To support your selection, we have created the new reference guide. Each product group is explained with a list of typical features, photos and display examples. With a clear table overview you can easily compare the various options of the products.

F-Series Eexd

The F0-Series have been certified according ATEX, IECEx, CSA C-US and FM for use in Intrinsically Safe applications with an ambient temperature of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F).

  • The ATEX markings for gas and dust applications are:
    II 1 G Ex ia IIC T4 Ga and II 1 D Ex ia IIIC T100°C Da
  • The IECEx markings for gas and dust applications are:
    Ex ia IIC T4 Ga and Ex ia IIIC T100°C Da
  • The CSA C-US markings are:
    Class I/II/III, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, D, E, F, G, Temperature class T4 and Class I, Zone 0, AEx ia IIC T4
  • The FM markings are:
    Class I/II/III, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, D, E, F, G, Temperature class T4 and Class I, Zone 0, AEx ia IIC T4

The F1-Series have been certified according ATEX and IECEx by DEKRA for use in Intrinsically Safe applications with an ambient temperature of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F).

  • The ATEX markings for gas and dust applications are:

  • The IECEx markings for gas and dust applications are:
    Ex ia IIC/IIB T4 Ga and Ex ia IIIC T100 °C Da.

For both the F0-Series and the F1-Series full functionality remains available, including analog, pulse / alarm outputs and Modbus communication. The units can be lithium battery powered, or connected to an external power source if required.
An explosion-proof enclosure, as shown on the right, is also available which has been certified in accordance to ATEX II 2 G / Ex d IIB T5 Gb and II 2 D / Ex t IIIB T100°C Db.

HART Communication More >>

The F018 is available as flow rate monitor / totalizer with HART communication. It is the only product in the F0-Series with communication and an analog output. As the F018 is slightly different to the rest of the F0-Series, the familiar ruggedness of the F-Series and the user-friendly operation remains exactly the same. Know one, know them all!

Input features More >>

  • For flow-measurement, the instrument accepts signals from most flowmeters ranging from PD-meters with reed-switches or hall-effect sensors to turbine sine wave (coil) pick-ups and other NPN/PNP pulse outputs. NAMUR standard sensors and (0)4 – 20mA analog devices are also catered for. For applications with differential pressure flow transmitters, the analog input is adjustable from linear to square root calculation.
  • For level, pressure and temperature measurement, inputs are available for (0)4 – 20mA signals. For temperature measurement, thermocouple and 2, 3 or 4 wire PT100 (PRTD) elements are also supported. Linearization of the input signal, square root calculation and data filter functions are all available.

Output features More >>

Related to the functionality of the selected unit, the following output features are available:

  • Analog output proportional to the flow rate, level, differential, ratio, temperature, pressure or position. This turns the unit into a powerful transmitter with a local display. The (0)4 – 20mA or 0 – 10V DC analog output can also be used to control actuators.
  • Transistor or relay outputs for high and low alarms, pulse output, flow-direction as well as the control of valves / relays in batch control applications.
  • The RS232, RS485 or TTL interface makes it possible to communicate remotely, even with the battery-powered unit. All software parameters can be monitored / modified in addition to the usual transfer of data using the Modbus protocol.

Power requirements More >>

During the development of the F-Series products, ultra-low power consumption was a key-requirement. Thanks to recent advancements in CMOS technology, Fluidwell has extended the battery life significantly and introduced several smart power-management functions. Result: a battery lifetime of seven years can be achieved. Additionally, several alternative means of powering the F-Series are available: loop-powered, 24V AC/DC and 115-230V AC power inputs.

Since all settings are stored in EEPROM memory, you won't lose information when replacing the battery or in the event of sudden power loss. A backup of the running totals is made every minute.
