Field Intelligent Device – Mount-Anywhere Series - Wafer
The electromagnetic flowmeter uses Faraday's Law of
electromagnetic induction to measure the process flow.
The device consists of two units: a detector, through
which the fluid to be measured flows and in which
low-level signals proportional to flow rates are
obtained; and a converter, which supplies excitation
current to the detector, and amplifies the signals from
the detector and then processes and converts the signals
into the 4–20mAdc current signal or communication
signal. The meter features a Mount- Anywhere
magnetic field distribution technology, the meter is
highly immune to upstream flow disturbances.
Combined with a multi-functional converter LF620
(combined type) or LF622 (separate type) equipped
with its patented Noise-Sentry original noise-
suppression circuit and advanced algorithms. The
LF410 has a very high tolerance to noise, giving the
unit a very stable output even for slurry fluid
measurement. IR (Infrared) switches enable parameter
setting of the converter without removing the cover.
Flow direction can be set in either way, and its unique
128 x 128 dot matrix LCD display allows the LCD to
be rotated electronically to 90, 180 and 270 degrees
without opening the cover.

Transducer) is a communication protocol for industrial
sensors recommended by the HCF (HART

performing HART device configurations on PC or laptop is
available through the supplier .
*2: PROFIBUS is the communication protocol for factory
and process automation that the PROFIBUS
Organization recommends. Instead of analog control
with a conventional analog signal (4-20mA), it is
fieldbus which digitizes all signals. Flowmeters support
