Gettorf – Many common applications require flow control and flow rate measurement in poorly accessible places where programming and maintaining the devices is difficult.
Many common applications require flow control and flow rate measurement in
poorly accessible places where programming and maintaining the devices is
difficult. EGE provides a solution for such environments: flow control systems
consisting of a sensor and a separate amplifier. The devices from the newly
developed SKM 521 GR amplifier line can be installed with inline flow meters
and sensors for insertion into T-fittings. Sensor and amplifier can be
installed up to 100 m apart.
The electronics unit is designed for DIN rail installation in a control cabinet. Alternatively, it can be mounted on a mounting plate. It features a potential-free relay output that can be equipped with a programmable time on/off delay which allows users to bridge short-term flow drops and avoid irrelevant warning signals. The devices allow for the easy setting of switching points via a six digit LED display and a multi-turn potentiometer. They are operated with a 24 V DC supply voltage. Thanks to their extremely slim design with a 17.5 mm width, they allow for the space-saving installation of multi-channel monitoring systems.
