FG4000 – COMFORT

The measuring unit is housed in a rigid aluminium casting. An alphanumeric display and three membrane keys provide comfortable operation. Everything is designed according to requirements for user friendliness and ergonomics. Quick and easy access to the connectors is ensured. The flowmeter menu is in English, it is intuitive and allows easy configuration. All user parameters, from the flow and volume units, through the selection of displayed units, setting of the pulse and current output settings, can be easily set by a keypad.   The construction of the measure unit allows four positions of the flowtube in a horizontal or vertical pipe line while the correct operation position of the stainless steel front panel with display and membrane keys is always provided.

The factory standard is a two built-in pulse outputs. One for an information about positive direction of flow and a second for a negative. The second pulse output can be switched to a state contact for information about flow direction. Built-in are two pulse inputs, too. These can be used for a showing of a flow or volume value from an external device on the FG4000 display. The functionality of the FG4000 flowmeter can be extended by an add-on modules, such as the RS232, RS485 or MeterBUS interface, analog outputs 4-20 mA or 0-10 V, temperature module, detection of empty pipe module.
According to ordered specification, the FG4000 measure unit can be powered by 230 Vac, 115 Vac, 36 Vac, 24 Vac or 24 Vdc.
The flow meter has ingression rating IP67 while its increased resistance against electromagnetic interference in compliance with category E2 pursuant to EN ISO 4064-5 may be stressed.

FG4000 – ECONOMIC

The economical design of the FG4000 Flowmeter Unit has the same connectivity and functional expandability as the COMFORT version. However, the flowmeter is not fitted with a display and a keyboard. The local displaying and control functions are missing. This fact is reflected in the overall price, therefore the FG4000 ECONOMIC flow meters are the most cost-effective option. Without local display, it still fully complies with the requirements for integration into superstructure systems such as third-party visualization programs, super control systems (PLC), controlling of electrical valves, connecting of external counters, etc. The connectivity with these systems is allowed via integrated pulse output, analog output or communication interfaces (RS232, RS485, MeterBUS).

FG4000 principal features:

  • Comfortable or economical design of the measure unit
  • Compact or separate connecting of the flow sensors
  • Large selection of flow sensor types (flanged, wafer, threaded, food industry,…)
  • Wide range of applications (food, chemical, water and other industries)
  • User settable displaying of the items on the display
  • Setting of the flow meter direct by flowmeter´s keypad. (pulse out, analog out, type and speed of communication, dynamics of the measurement, etc.)
  • Flowtube replaceability (each flowtube has its own calibration constants)
  • User software FG measure for easy saving and printing of the measurent protocol, FG BVIS software for remote monitoring, …
  • Bidirectional flow measurement (separate counter for each direction)
  • Self-diagnostics – instrument status indicated on display
  • Volumetric monitoring on up to 5 resettable flow rate totalizers (counters)
  • Monitoring of maximum flow reached within a time interval
  • Option to connect up to two external devices (flow meters) to pulse inputs and to display their flow rate and volume information
  • Easy integration into other manufacturer’s host systems using pulse or analogue outputs, RS232,485 or MeterBUS interface…
  • Optional temperature measurement module (not allowed with empty pipe detection module)
  • Optional pipe detection module (el. module + third detection electrode)
  • archiving of date time stamped measurement data for up to one year in non-volatile memory
  • uptime records
  • power failure and error condition records
