Flow Rate Transmitters

For 1/4" - 2" Pipe Sizes

flow rate transmittersStyle R Flow Transmitters ce

Ideal for batching, industrial process control, mobile hydraulic equipment and computer/PLC-controlled hydraulic system monitoring applications.

SIMPLE TO INSTALL
All transmitters are factory calibrated and ship fully assembled. Simply install the transmitter into your system and apply power.

INDUSTRY STANDARD OUTPUTS
Transmitters provide proportional analog outputs of 4-20mA, 0-5 Vdc and 1-5 Vdc1, and 20-2000 Hz square-wave pulse. These outputs will drive popular data acquisition devices, meters and analog input cards.

DIRECT READING
All transmitters provide a visual indication of flow rate proportional to the transmitted output.

WEATHER-TIGHT CONSTRUCTION
The rugged cast aluminum NEMA type 4X enclosure allows installation in outdoor applications and in environments where liquid tight seals are required.

RUGGED AND RELIABLE
Without delicate internal components to break, abrade or corrode, the Lake flow transmitter will provide many years of low-maintenance service.

COMPATIBLE WITH LAKE MONITORS’ R/T100 AND R100 FLOW ANALYZERS
The Lake flow rate transmitter combines with these Lake analyzers to make a powerful flow instrument capable of remote monitoring of rate and total flows.

1The 1-5Vdc output requires an external 249 ohm resistor (not included with transmitter) to be wired at the receiving device.



Flow Transmitter Engineering Specification

THE IN-LINE FLOW RATE METER/TRANSMITTER SHALL:

Electronic Transmitter Performance

Power requirements:

12-35 Vdc

Load driving capacity:

4-20mA: Load resistance is dependent on power supply voltage. Use the following equation to calculate maximum load resistance:
Max Loop Load (Ω) = 50(Power supply volts - 12).
0-5 VDC: Minimum load resistance 1000 Ω
1-5 VDC: Minimum load resistance 25 K Ω
Square Wave Pulse: Minimum load resistance 1000 Ω

Transmission distance:

4-20mA and 1-5 VDC are limited only by wire resistance and power supply voltage.
<200 feet recommended for 0-5 VDC and square wave pulse.

Over-current protection:

self limiting at 35mA

Resolution:

10 bit (0.1%)

Isolation:

Inherently isolated from the process

Response time:

<100 milliseconds
