Magnetic Meter

 Model AXF Magnetic MeterISTEC meters are ideal for applications where you need a minimal pressure drop or liquids with suspended solids. These meters are available in sizes from 0.1" through 16". The display can be mounted on the flow tube or mounted remotely. The LED display shows rate, total and other set-up and diagnostic tools.

FEATURES
BENEFITS


Enhanced Dual Frequency Excitation Method
Selectable 165Hz component ensures quicker response and greater stability in high concentration slurries. Selectable 165Hz component ensures quicker response and greater stability in high concentration slurries
Lower Minimum Fluid Conductivity
With the newly designed AXF Flow Converter, improvements to the input circuit now permit the measurement of fluids with conductivity as low as 1μS/cm
Diagnostics to Detect Insulating Coatings on the Electrodes
The amount of insulating material on the electrode is constantly monitored to determine when maintenance should be performed
Optional Replaceable Electrodes
Simplifies electrode maintenance and cleaning
Improved Accuracy Specification
The standard performance specification is 0.35% of reading. Optional high accuracy calibration rated at 0.2% of reading
Three-line LCD Display with Infrared Programming Switches
A large, backlit, full dot matrix display can be programmed to provide a wide variety of display possibilities
Electrode Coating Diagnostics
 Electrode Coatint DisgnosticsBy constantly monitoring the change in the impedance of the electrode circuit due to the build-up of insulating coatings, the AXF converter will display 4 different levels of coating. When the third level is exceeded, a warning is displayed; when the fourth level is exceeded, an alarm is displayed.
Replaceable Electrode Design
Electrode maintenance and cleaning becomes easier because the user can rely on the new predictive diagnostics to monitor the status of the electrodes and then remove them for cleaning if necessary. Available in 1–16" sizes.
Full Dot Matrix LCD Indicator
The LCD indicator employs a large, backlit, full dot matrix display. One to three lines are available to indicate a wide variety of display possibilities. Infrared switches permit programming through the glass without the need to open the enclosure cover.
