Field Intelligent Device Series
Electromagnetic Flowmeter
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 4–20
mA dc current signal. The LF470 is a small meter size
detector designed to measure a small amount of fluids
containing substances such as chemicals.
The wetted materials for the LF470 are corrosion
resistant ceramic and platinum electrods and are
applicable to almost any kind of fluids. The LF470 is a
multi-functional converter LF612 (separate type) and
(separate type) equipped with its patented
Noise-Sentry original noise-suppression circuit and
advanced algorithms. The LF470 is highly resistant to
noise and provides a stable output even for fluids
containing slurries. 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 be rotated to 90, 180
and 270 degrees without opening the cover
The AF900 hand-held terminal (HART*
can be used to communicate with the flowmeter from a
remote place. PROFIBUS-PA*
as an option.
*1: Please refer to the document "TIC-LF232".
*2: HART protocol (Highway Addressable Remote
Transducer) is a communication protocol for industrial
sensors recommended by the HCF (HART Communication
*3: 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 the fieldbus
which digitizes all signals. Flowmeters support
