ABB launches new sanitary magmeters in U.S.
The flowmeter includes many advances in both the primary that installs in a process pipeline, and the entirely new digital converter. The new converter employs a simple, menu-driven configuration. A short and quick data entry process is used to load all user specific parameters required for instrument operation through an "East Set-up" process. Configuration parameters and calibration data area saved in an external FRAM that plugs directly into the converter. If converter replacement is necessary, all configuration parameters and calibration data are automatically downloaded to the converter, saving valuable time. The illuminated 2-line display allows the user to view up to six different parameters simultaneously which allows for a better control of the entire system. The locally selectable pulse output (passive optocoupler or active 24 V DC pulses) provides a choice of the appropriate signal for flow processing. The converter is available in HART, Profibus PA, Profibus DP or Foundation Fieldbus enabling the user to choose the proper communication protocol to monitor meter location with automatic diagnostics in the event an error occurs.
The universal applicability of the FXE4000 offers one universal, high-performing system for all flow measurements of conductive liquids, allowing users to minimize spare parts while lowering the total cost of ownership.
