Flow sensors – The full range Thermal Flow Sensor

Calorimetric Flow sensors for liquid media:
The calorimetric flow meters by TURCK measure reliably and wear-free the flow rate of water/glycol mixtures with an accuracy of 10% f.s. The thermal operation principle of the devices is based on the cooling of a heated sensing probe, achieved by a fluid motion alongside the probe. The heat loss is a measure of the flow speed resp. flow rate.

 M-FMX Intelligent signal processors

FM/FMX Intelligent signal processors

The new flow modules of the FM-IM series combine easy handling and high functionality with many connection possibilites, adapted to the latest requirements. All TURCK flow sensors of the FCS (immersion) and FCI (inline) series can be operated at the new modules.

No complicated adjustments of upper and lower limit values. Switchpoints, flow and temperature ranges are easily set up, thanks to the quick-teach function and the intuitive menu navigation
The flow modules are either configured via pushbuttons or remotely via the IO-Link/HART® communication interface.

The FM series features six devices. Three devices for the connection of non-Ex area sensors (FM) and three for Ex area sensors (FMX). They are equipped with standard PNP transistor outputs, relay outputs as well as analog 4…20 mA current outputs.
