1) Manufacturer's specification, valid for the reference conditions as specified under Meter Data
2) 1 U.S. gallon corresponds to 3.785 litres.
3) For burners and engines or motors, the meter must be selected on the basis of the permanent flow rate. For higher viscosities, or if the meter is installed on the suction side, the pressure drop and any reduction in the measuring range must be taken into consideration.
4) Weight without couplings.
5) Two freely selectable outputs are available, totally independent of each other.

  • By Non-volatile Memory (EEPROM)

Protection Class:

  • IP 66 (IEC 60529) Against Dust and Heavy Seas

OUTPUTS

Four different output functions are available -

  1. Pulser for volume pulses with programmable pulse value (for external totalizer)
  2. Analog current output 4-20mA corresponding to flow rate
  3. Frequency output 0-100Hz corresponding to flow rate
  4. Switching function (limiting value switch) specified by programmable upper and lower flow rates

Except for the current output function, any two of the remaining three functions can always be used simultaneously. This results in two types of connection:

1 Potential-free Digital Output (Rel. 1), Parameterisables to one of the three functions described below. 2 Potential-free Digital Outputs (Rel. 1 + Rel. 2), each Parameterisables to one of the three functions described below.
1 Passive Analog 4-20mA Output also used for Powering the meter. The Analog Output is not available in this case. The Power, however, is suppled over these terminals.

1) Manufacturer's specification, valid for the reference conditions as specified under Meter Data
2) 1 U.S. gallon corresponds to 3.785 litres
3) For burners and engines or motors, the meter must be selected on the basis of the permanent flow rate. For higher viscosities, or if the meter is installed on the suction side, the pressure drop and any reduction in the measuring range must also be taken into consideration.
4) Min. flow rate VZO 15 with IN-pulser: 15 l/h
5) Weight without couplings.
6) Two freely selectable outputs are available, totally independent of each other.
