DF-20 Flow Transducer
Flow transducer for fluids
Used for measuring fluid flow volumes and speeds, the DF-20 flow transducer can be used on our DMZ-X units, for example. It is well-suited for low-solid content fluids. The fluids must be transparent to infrared light (e.g., water, oil, chemicals).
The DF-20 is appropriate for flow rates of 0.5 – 20 liters per minute (for DMZ-4 / DMZ-8: 0.5 - 5 liters per minute). It is equipped with 3/8" AG connectors. Some suggested areas of application are: filling equipment, such as in the food and drink industry, cooling water monitoring, wastewater engineering, general mechanical engineering, or the chemical industry. Thanks to the materials used (plastic and stainless steel), it is able to measure aggressive media.
|Power supply voltage||5 ... 24 V DC, (12-24 mA)|
|Output signal||Pulses: approx. 100 - 2000 Hz,
Square-wave NPN OPEN collector
|Flow volume||0.5 - 20 liters / min. (water)
The flow transducer is designed for low-viscosity fluids (solids < 20 µm). When using with DMZ-X, only frequencies up to 500 Hz can be evaluated, corresponding to 0.5 - 5 liters / min.
