Fluidwell F130 Batch Flow Control

Overview

The F-Series is your first and safest choice for field mount indicators in safe and hazardous area applications. Especially in harsh weather conditions like rain, snow, salty atmospheres and temperatures between -40°C up to +80°C (-40°F up to 176°F).

The F130 is a batch controller with two control outputs for two-stage batching or one-stage control with a scaled pulse output. The operator can enter a batch quantity easily or execute repeating batches.

During the batch, the preset value is displayed simultaneously with the batched or remaining quantity. The automatic self-learning overrun correction will ensure an accurate batch every time. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection.

General Information

Introduction

The F030 is a straight forward but basic Batch Controller. The operator can enter a batch quantity easily or execute repeating batches. During the batch, the preset value is displayed as well as the batched (or remaining) quantity and the units of measurement. The automatic self-learning overrun correction will ensure an accurate result each batch again. A wide selection of options further enhances the capabilities of this model, including Intrinsic Safety.

Display

The display has large 17mm (0.67”) and 8mm (0.31”) digits which are used to display the batched quantity and the preset value simultaneously. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive menu. A seven digit resettable “day total” is available as well as an eleven digit non-resettable accumulated total.

All are backed-up in EEPROM memory every minute. A smart display update function achieves a readable display even at -40°C / -40°F

Configuration

All configuration settings are accessed via a simple operator menu which can be password protected. Each setting is clearly indicated with an alphanumerical description, which avoids confusing abbreviations. Once familiar with one F-series product, you will be able to program all models in the series without a manual. All settings are safely stored in EEPROM memory in the event of sudden power failure.

Hazardous area

For hazardous area applications, this model is ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA certified as Intrinsically Safe for gas and dust applications, with an allowed ambient temperature of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F). A flame proof Ex d enclosure with ATEX certification is also available.

  • The ATEX markings for gas and dust applications are:
    • Gas: II 1 G Ex ia IIC T4 Ga.
    • Dust: II 1 D Ex ia IIIC T100 °C Da.
  • The IECEx markings for gas and dust applications are:
    • Gas: Ex ia IIC T4 Ga

    • IS, Class I, II, III, Division 1, Groups A to G T4. Class I, Zone 0, AEx ia IIC T4

It is allowed to connect up to three I.S. power supplies to power the unit, sensor and backlight. Consult the certificate for the maximum input and output values of the circuits. The F030-PD-XI offers a 8.2V DC sensor supply to power e.g. a Namur sensor or the input voltage to power an analog sensor. An ATEX approved flame proof Ex d enclosure is available as well. Please contact your supplier for further details.

Backlight

For those applications where readability during day and night is an issue, a white backlight is available. The intensity can be adjusted from the keyboard. The display is a transflective type, which means that a high contrast reading is guaranteed in full sunlight as well as during the night. This backlight option is available Intrinsically Safe.

Signal input

The F030 accepts most pulse and analog input signals for volumetric flow or mass flow measurement. The input signal type can be selected by the user in the configuration menu without having to adjust any sensitive mechanical dip-switches, jumpers or trimmers. The analog input is available with linear and square root calculation and even as 4 – 20mA input loop powered.

Control output

One output is available for one stage control of smaller batchvolumes. The output signal can be a passive NPN or an
active PNP transistor, or an isolated electro-mechanical relay

Power requirements

Several power supply options are available to power the F030 and sensor. A battery powered version with a long life lithium battery which will last up to five years. For analog sensors, a 4 – 20mA loop powered version is available as well. A real sensor supply is offered with the 24V AC / DC or 115 – 230V AC power requirement options.

Enclosures

Various types of enclosures can be selected, all ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA approved. The F030 is supplied in an GRP panel mount enclosure as standard, which can be converted to an IP67 / NEMA 4X GRP field mount enclosure by the addition of a back case.

Most popular is our robust aluminum field mount enclosure which is also available with an extended back cover with undrilled preparation for direct meter mounting at the back side. It is so rugged, even a truck can stand on it! For the most challenging environments we have a durable high grade Stainless steel 316L enclosure. All enclosures have a IP67 / NEMA Type4X rating and EU or U.S. cable gland entry threads available.
