Kofloc EX-550 Metal Digital Mass Flow Meter

Kofloc EX-550 metal mass flow meter
Kofloc EX-550 metal mass flow meter

In comparison with the conventional mechanical products, the mass flow measurement/control technology used in a mass flow meter and controller extracts electrical signals from the flow without significantly influencing the temperature or pressure, thus permitting sophisticated flow measurement and control. The technology is widely used for manufacturing semiconductors, liquid crystal, optical fibers and other electronic devices, gas supply for fuel cells, and fuel gas control for burners, foods, biotechnology, as well as for experimental facilities and production/inspection systems in many other industries.

Feature

  • Metal sealing design
  • Lower cost but high accuracy measurement.
  • High-speed response and zero stability.
  • 0-5VDC or 4-20mA input/output signal and +/-15VDC or 24VDC power supply.
  • Mediocrity D-sub 9pin.
  • Gases registered in EX-550 are usable by rotary-switch.
    *Calculate the flow rate with a conversion factor based on N2 gas.
  • RoHS compliance, CE marked

(*1) The gases must be dry and clean, free of corrosive components and foreign matter such as dust and mist.

(*2) The flow rate calibration units SCCM and SLM indicate a mass flow rate converted to a volume flow rate in cc/min and L/min at 0°C and 1 atm.

(*3) The operating differential pressure may differ depending on specifications.

(*4) Pressure condition would be needed when you order.
