  • 4-20mA Output
  • High Low Alarms
  • Linearization
  • Modbus RTU

Applications

  • The F-Series is your first and safest choice for fieldmount indicators. Especially in harsh weather conditions like rain, snow, salty atmospheres and temperatures between -40°F up to +176°F  -40°C up to 80°C) for safe and hazardous area applications.
  • Liquid flow measurement with mechanical flowmeters where a precise calculation over the full measurement range is required. Also continuous flow rate monitoring is required.
