F118

Field mount - Flow rate Monitor / Totalizer

with linearization, high / low alarms, analog and pulse outputs

Product description

The F118 is a versatile flow rate indicator / transmitter and totalizer with the ability to precisely linearize the flowmeter signal. In addition to the average K-Factor or Span, ten linearization points can be entered with their frequencies or values. The unit will interpolate between these points, greatly enhancing accuracy in any flow range, even for very low frequency applications. Moreover, a continuous flow rate monitoring feature is available with high and low flow rate alarm values and up to three alarm outputs.

Flow rate and total are transmitted with an analog and scaled pulse output. The display shows flow rate, total, accumulated total, alarm values, alarm messages and status. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection.

Advantages
  • Robust IP66, IP67 (NEMA Type4X) field enclosure.
    It is so rugged, you can even stand on it!
  • Intrinsically Safe available - ATEX and IECEx approval for gas and dust applications.
  • Familiar easy operation with the Fluidwell "Know one, know them all" configuration structure, saving time, cost and aggravation.
  • Very diverse mounting possibilities: walls, pipes, panels or directly onto outdoor sensors.
