AW-Lake CAPM-3 Carrier Frequency Sensor

AW-Lake CAPM-3 Carrier Frequency Sensor is a Carrier Frequency sensor which means there is no permanent magnet in the pickup, and any magnetic drag on the flow meter is avoided. The CAPM-3 requires a supply voltage between 10 VDC to 30 VDC. A diode in the supply input prevents damage to the module in case the polarity of the supply voltage is wrong. The output signal is a square wave, voltage pulse of approximate amplitude (supply – 1.5 V). The frequency is proportional to the flow rate. For use with HPM-SLG and JVS-SLG gear meters.

AW-Lake CAPM-3 Carrier Frequency Sensor Features:

  • Meter Compatibility: Used with HPM-SLG and JVS-SLG gear meters
  • Output Signal: Square wave, voltage pulse of approximate aplitude (supply – 1.5V)
  • Sourcing output: PNP type sourcing open collector transistor
  • Intrinsically Safe: Intrinsically safe CAPM-3o version available
  • IS Safe Version: UL & cUL certified for use in Class 1, Div 1 locations
Installation:
  • Ensure that the flow meter sensor cavity is free of debris prior to installation.
  • Mount the CAPM-3 onto the flow meter and fasten with mounting screws.
