Signal Converters New Converters for Flowmeter Systems
Krohne introduces the new IFC 050 signal converter for electromagnetic flowmeters. Developed for the growing water markets worldwide, IFC 050 is designed to fit in any basic water or wastewater application. The unit can be combined with Optiflux and Waterflux electromagnetic flow sensors, e.g. in water harvesting and purifications plants.
In addition, its features match metering or leak detection in water distribution networks, agriculture or utility applications such as as sprinkler/ irrigation, cooling or fire-fighting systems. To suit the requirements of these applications, IFC 050 outputs reach from 4...20 mA HART, an active pulse output for driving e.g. an electromechanical counter up to an RS485 Modbus output for communication with microcontrollers and PLC`s. As an option, the signal converter can be equipped with all three outputs.
IFC 050 features a sturdy and robust construction: the shockproof aluminum housing is finished with a protective double-layer paint that withstands salty atmospheres. Its electronics have an extra coating against condensed moisture for use in e.g. in tropical areas. For convenient operation, IFC 050 can be ordered as wall-mounted or compact version. As an alternative to the display version, the blind version is the option for applications where the menu needs to be approached only once a time and a permanent display is not required.
