Fluidwell F016 Intrinsically Safe Flow rate Indicator

Robust Intrinsically Safe flow rate indicators / totalizers for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F016 is a local indicator / transmitter which displays the actual flow rate, total and accumulated total. In addition to the average K-Factor or Span, eight linearization points can be entered with their frequencies or values. The unit will interpolate between these points, greatly enhancing accuracy in any flow range, even for very low frequency applications. This linearization affects all displayed information as well as the pulse output. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection.
