Endress+Hauser announces Picomag electromagnetic flowmeter
Endress+Hauser, whose US operation is based in Greenwood, IN, says its new Picomag electromagnetic flowmeter is an in-line transmitter for measuring the temperature and flow of conductive liquids in pipe sizes ranging from ½, to 2 in., such as drinking and industrial water. It measures flow up to 198 gal/minute with ±0.5% fullscale accuracy and ±0.2% repeatability, and temperatures from 14 to 158°F (-10 to 70°C) with ±4.5°F accuracy.
The Picomag combines a sensor and transmitter in the same housing, with a 1.4-in. TFT color display showing flow, totalizer and temperature readings, as well as warning and alarm messages.
Outputs include 4-20 mA, pulse, switch and 2-10 V. IO-Link connectivity provides flexible integration into automation systems. The Bluetooth wireless interface allows direct access to process and diagnostics data, and enables the user to configure the measuring device on the fly. The device can be operated and configured on Android and iOS devices via the free SmartBlue App.
The IO-Link interface allows installation into Fieldbus and other existing infrastructures. The IO-Link Master allows data access from the control room and automatically transfers configuration parameters after a device replacement.
The flowmeter is ideal for use on process skids where space is often limited, or in difficult to reach locations. Picomag can be installed into any pipe up to 2-in. (50-mm) diameter, even in confined spaces. Various process connection adapters are available, including NPT-thread, Rthread, internal thread, Tri-Clamp or Victaulic. It is available in models that accept ½-, ¾-, 1- or 2-in. process connections.
The stainless steel Picomag flowmeter has high shock and vibration resistance, IP65/67 protection and a PEEK measuring tube. It fulfills EMC requirements according to IEC/EN 61326. It also conforms to the requirements of the EU and ACMA directives, and has a cULus listing.
