EL-FLOW Select F-232M

Gas Mass Flow Controllers for high pressure / high delta-P

Bronkhorst® model F-232M Mass Flow Controllers (MFCs) are suited for accurate measurement and control of flow ranges between 0,2…10 ln/min and 2…100 ln/min at operating pressures up to 400 bar as well as max. 400 bar pressure difference (ΔP) . 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.

EL-FLOW® Select 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™, EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET, Modbus or FLOW-BUS protocols.
