The FMG-550 Series magmeter
flow sensors are heavy-duty,
high-performance sensors in an
adjustable, insertion configuration
that can be used with a ball valve
for hot-tap installations. This
insertion-style flow sensor has no
moving parts and is constructed of
corrosion-resistant materials to
provide long-term reliability with
minimal maintenance costs.
FMG-550 Series is versatile and
simple-to-install, delivering reliable
flow measurement over a wide
dynamic range. Pipe sizes range
from 2 to 48". Omega’s FMG-550
magmeters offer frequency or
current outputs. The blind
transmitter (4 to 20 mA output) is available for long distance signal
transmission. The empty pipe
detection features a zero flow
output when the electrodes are not
completely wetted. The frequency
output is bi-directional while the 4 to
20 mA output can be set for uni- or
bi-directional flow. The 4 to 20 mA
output is factory spanned. Other factory configurations available, see "Notes" below for ordering instructions.
