Electromagnetic Flowmeter Converter
Sanitary 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 LF232 offers various outputs such as totalization
output and multi-range selection outputs. With it
patented Noise-Sentry original noise-suppression
circuit and advanced algorithms. The LF232 is highly
resistant to noise and provides a stable output even
when measuring fluids contain slurries. The LF232 can
be used with a separately mounted detector such as the
LF150 or LF470. The LF232 can also be used with
conventional models of detectors.
The AF900 hand-held terminal (HART*
communicator) can be used to communicate with the
flowmeter from a remote place. See the
Communications signal specification for details about
HART protocol.
*1: HART protocol (Highway Addressable Remote
Transducer) is a communication protocol for industrial
sensors recommended by the HCF (HART
Communication Foundation).
