Burkert Fluid Control Systems has enhanced the technical features and appearance of its digital flow transmitters. The 8026, 8036 and 8076 models now shine in the same stainless steel design of the ELEMENT series and feature new processors, software, additional features, and an innovative operating concept.
The stainless steel housing and the removable displays with backlight are the most obvious changes to the new Burkert Fluid Control Systems' digital flow transmitters. However, the new housing conceals a number of other technical improvements thanks to a complete re-engineering.
The new features include future-proof system architecture with a new processor and new software to optimise sensor performance. To guarantee maximum reliability and quality, the same circuits are used for conductivity and pH/ORP measurement as those used in the ELEMENT analytical transmitter models 8222 and 8202.
The flow transmitters with 4-20 mA output are available in two versions: Basic (1 NPN transistor output) and Advanced (two NPN/PNP transistor outputs). Both of these versions comply with stringent safety standards and provide long-lasting and reliable IP65/67 protection.
The stainless steel housing design is very durable and resistant to cleaning chemicals, making these flow transmitters ideal for use in water treatment and process automation, as well as for food and beverage, brewing, cosmetics, dairy, and pharmaceuticals.
These digital flow transmitters feature removable displays which are programmable and equipped with a backlight for easier operation. All customer specific settings, such as measuring ranges, units of measurement, pulse output and filters are configured directly at the device.
Programming of the digital flow transmitter is done using a joystick. By moving it horizontally/vertically the user selects lines and rows, which are activated by pushing the joystick. This control button is used to set parameters, define and save configurations, and to start the unit.
Key features of Burkert Fluid Control Systems' new digital flow transmitter include:
- stainless steel housing in standardised ELEMENT design
- long durability and outstanding availability
- removable, programmable display with backlight
