Katronic to present Katflow 100 transmitter
Katflow 100 transmitter
Katronic Technologies' clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter specialists will present a new fixed-installation flow transmitter at Hannover Messe.
The Katflow 100 has a modular design and will provide flexibility on applications where simple process input and output options are sufficient.
The transmitter electronics can be placed in different wall-mounted-enclosure types to suit individual customer requirements.
Since it is programmable via its RS232 interface, the Katflow 100 does not require a keypad.
The flow transmitter further offers AC, DC, battery and solar-panel power-supply options as well as an optional RS485 interface that can be enabled for Modbus RTU communication.
The process input and output options available on the Katflow 100 feature active and passive current inputs (0/4-20mA), PT100 temperature inputs, active and passive current outputs (0/4-20mA), a Hart-enabled current output (0/4-20mA), voltage output (0-10V), frequency output (0-10kHz) and open-collector and relay outputs.
The single-channel Katflow 100 can be enabled for heat-quantity measurement using PT100 clamp-on temperature sensors to monitor the fluid's temperature.
Ordered with the optional sound-velocity measurement function, it can also be used for contactless product identification, interface and pig detection and concentration measurements.
The Katflow clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters measure flow externally, avoiding the need to cut into pipes for installation.
They work on almost any clean or dirty liquid - regardless of electric conductivity - with high accuracy for both flow velocity and volumetric flow.
Katronic flowmeters can be employed on the pipelines of any acoustically conductive material and diameters from 10mm to more than 3.0m (0.4in to more than 118in).
Katronic Technologies has added the Katflow instruments to its range of clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters.
The FTB370 series of flow turbines from Omega Engineering is designed for the flow rate measurement of water and many water-based liquids.
This technical handbook from Lee Products focuses on electro-fluidic systems, including solenoid valves, pumps, nozzles, mixers and more.
The HH-USD universal handheld test instrument from Omega Engineering has the capacity to work with a variety of compatible sensing modules and probes. Additional wired and wireless probes or modules are instantly recognised by the HH-USD without any user reprogramming or alteration, allowing seamless sensor addition, upgrade or replacement.
There are many ways to measure the flow of liquids and gases. One of the newer technologies is ultrasonics, which is becoming more widespread in flowmeters. What benefits have encouraged the uptake in ultrasonics? This article from Gill Research and Development discusses the two principles for ultrasonic flow measurement: the Doppler effect and time of flight. The article also presents the benefits of using the latter principle.
