Fluidwell F490 Safe Area Loop Powered, Multi Purpose Indicator

Robust Intrinsically Safe general / multi purpose indicators for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F490 is a versatile, loop powered Multi Purpose Indicator to display the actual process value, range and loop current.? Besides the focus on level, temperature and pressure applications, the F490 can also work with other measuring units, like %, mA, RPM and more. The measuring unit to be displayed is simply selected through an alfa-numerical configuration menu. The configuration of Span, offset and number of decimals is done through software functions, without any sensitive dip-switches or trimmers. Therefore, the F490 is a versatile indicator that suits many applications. Various options are available, including Intrinsic Safety for hazardous area applications.

The F490 is a versatile, loop powered Multi Purpose Indicator to display the actual process value, range and loop current.? Besides the focus on level, temperature and pressure applications, the F490 can also work with other measuring units, like %, mA, RPM and more.

The configuration of Span, offset and number of decimals is done through software functions, without any sensitive dip-switches or trimmers. Therefore, the F490 is a versatile indicator that suits many applications. Various options are available, including Intrinsic Safety for hazardous area applications.

The input circuit is separated from the backlight circuit. The F490 accepts 4 – 20mA input signals from a wide range of process instruments, including flow (linear or square root), level, pressure and temperature transmitters. All these process parameters can be displayed in their own engineering units.

Advantages
  • Robust aluminum or stainless steel 316L field enclosure (IP66, IP67 / NEMA Type4X) .
    It is so rugged, a truck can even stand on it!
  • Intrinsically Safe available – ATEX, IECEx and CSA approval for gas and dust applications.
  • Familiar easy operation with the Fluidwell “Know one, know them all” configuration structure, saving time, cost and aggravation.
  • Very diverse mounting possibilities: walls, pipes, panels or directly onto outdoor sensors.
