Air/Compressed Air Flow Meter - FS10i - Fluid Components Intl. (FCI)
San Marcos, CA, United States
Air/Compressed Air Flow Meter FS10i
The FS10i is a compact, economical solution to air and compressed air flow metering. It is the first, and currently only, thermal mass flow meter to meet SIL 2. Utilizing application proven thermal mass flow technology, the FS10i provides a highly accurate and repeatable linearized 4-20 mA output of flow rate. Additionally, for applications benefiting from a high or low flow alarm point, the FS10i includes a user programmable 1A SPDT relay output. FS10i Features Direct Mass Flow Measurement Ultra Reliable, No Moving Parts Design User-Programmable 4-20 mA Output and Relay Trip Point Set-Up Via PC Interface 10 LED Display Array Easy M12 or Cable Gland Connection WIth Electronics SIL 2 Compliance Rating Optional Div 2 / Zone 2 Approvals

Universal Flow Switch and Flow Monitor - FS10i - Fluid Components Intl. (FCI)
San Marcos, CA, United States
Universal Flow Switch and Flow Monitor FS10i
The FS10i is a universal flow switch and flow monitor designed for simple insertion into ½” (13mm) or larger diameter pipes and square ducts. The unit is suitable for either liquid or air/gas applications. It is fast responding and highly repeatable to both increasing and decreasing flow rate changes. The standard 1A relay trip point is easily set in the field for low or high trip point and the trip and reset points can be further tuned with hysteresis and time delay adjustments. Also included standard is a 4-20mA trending output of the flow rate for connection to ancillary controls or alarm systems. The FS10i includes a 10-LED array which provides both an indication the trip point has been exceeded (LED flashes on/off) and of relative flow rate (10% increments) across the flow range. The FS10i provides best-in-class features for installation in rugged duty and long-life in industrial plants, process and large buildings. Its flow sensor’s thermowells are constructed of highly corrosion resistant Hastelloy C-276, it will operate in fluid temperatures up to 250°F/121°C, IP protection rating to IP67, optional global agency approvals for installation in Division 2/Zone 2 locations and it is the only unit in its price range to carry a SIL 2 compliance rating. It has no moving parts to clog and requires no routine maintenance which saves time and expense over any mechanical-technolog y based flow switch.
