IN-FLOWF-203AI

Industrial Style Gas Mass Flow Controllers for higher flow rates

Bronkhorst® model F-203AI Mass Flow Controllers (MFCs) are suited for accurate measurement and control of flow ranges between 4…200 ln/min and 33…1670 ln/min with pressure rating between vacuum and 64 bar. The MFC consists of a thermal mass flow sensor, a precise control valve and a microprocessor based pc-board with signal and fieldbus conversion. As a function of a setpoint value, the flow controller swiftly adjusts the desired flow rate. The IN-FLOW model is of rugged design (IP65) for use in industrial environments or even Zone 2 hazardous areas, with optional ATEX Cat. 3 or FM Class I, Div. 2 approval.

IN-FLOW series are equipped with a digital pc-board, offering high accuracy, excellent temperature stability and fast response. The main digital pc-board contains all of the general functions needed for measurement and control. In addition to the standard RS232 output the instruments also offer analog I/O. As an option, an on-board interface can be mounted to provide CANopen®, DeviceNet™, PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET, Modbus RTU/ASCII or FLOW-BUS protocols.
