Endress+Hauser has made updates to its smart plug-and-play Picomag electromagnetic flowmeter. The Picomag update enables measurement of flow of electrically conductive fluids and the process temperature and conductivity. It enables easy commissioning with Bluetooth using the SmartBlue App and seamless integration with IO-Link technology.
Picomag can be installed into any pipe up to 2” in diameter, even in confined spaces. For this purpose, there are various process connection adapters available, such as NPT-thread, R-thread, internal thread, Tri-Clamp or Victaulic. Picomag is a cost-optimized solution for applications where the focus is on high repeatability (±0.2% o.f.s.) and reliable measured values – e.g. for correctly measuring water flows 198 gal/min or for minimizing energy costs
in utility applications.
Picomag is suitable for process temperatures between 14 to 158 °F (temporarily up to 185ºF) as well as for process pressures up to 232 psi. Picomag requires no inlet and outlet runs and thus can be mounted directly before or after a pipe bend.
The user-friendly display allows a quick and easy reading of flow, temperature, conductivity and totalizer values. Errors occurring during operations, such as a partial pipe filling or an exceeded temperature limit, are displayed via diagnostic symbols in accordance with NAMUR recommendation NE107. The screen rotates automatically depending on the installation position (horizontal or vertical). Configuration parameters can be called up and monitored by simply knocking on the device.
It is possible to carry out wireless configuration or data retrieval over a distance of 32 ft Bluetooth connection– even at installation sites which are difficult to access. Endress+Hauser’s SmartBlue App allows quick and easy navigation through all device and diagnostic functions.
Picomag provides digital data transmission to process control systems via IO-Link technology. The IO-Link master as an interface allows users to have comprehensive data access from the control room. Other advantages of the IO-Link technology include the automatic transfer of parameters after a device replacement as well as low wiring effort as compared to conventional wiring.
