FMR204A High-performance Electromagnetic Flowmeter

Hitachi has identified the needs for flow measurement and has always offered up-to-date solutions. The FMR204A series of flowmeters are high-performance electromagnetic flowmeters leveraging Hitachi’s experience and expertise, which are also used for large-scale water processing facilities.

Feature

FMR204A Series High-Performance Electromagnetic Flowmeter

FMR204A features the reliability that withstands severe operating environments and high functionality that provides user convenience.

  • A variety of functions is already in place
    Controls for multiple ranges, flow direction, flow switch, self-diagnosis are provided as standard. Analog/total-flow pulse signals for reverse flow can be output separately using an optional control.
  • Reflection switches for better operability
    The infrared reflection switches allow the setting of different functions without opening the cover.
  • Easy-to-read indicator
    The indicator is a backlit liquid crystal display. The number of digits displayed has increased from 6 digits to 8 digits.
  • Compatible with commercially available cables (model FMR204AW)
    The sensor and converter are connected via a commercially available two-core cable (CVV-S). The cable length can be extended up to 1,000 m.
  • An immersion-proof high performance model has been added (model FMR204AR)
    An immersion proof sensor suited for installation in areas affected by temporary floods or vibration-prone sites was recently added to FMR204A lineups.
  • Enhanced waterproof property (model FMR204AU)
    The conventional buried-type waterproof design was enhanced and developed into a submersible type (IP68).
  • Earth friendly environment adaptive product
    The power consumption has been reduced compared to the conventional products. (Compared with FMR204U / FMR204AU can reduce 50%)

Lineup

Lineups and configuration examples

FMR204AW(High performance immersion proof type, Compatible with commercially available cables)

FMR204AW is a high-performance, immersion-proof flange-type* flowmeter (compatible with commercially available cables). The built-in amplifier in the sensor enables cable extension of up to 1,000 m using a commercially available two-core cable.

FMR204AR(High performance immersion proof type, Used with a dedicated cable)

FMR204AR is a high-performance, immersion-proof flange-type* flowmeter (used with a dedicated cable). The model is suited for installation in areas affected by temporary floods or vibration-prone sites.

FMR204AU(High-performance submersible type (buried type), Used with a dedicated cable)

FMR204AU is a high-performance, submersible flange-type flowmeter. The waterproof structure of the sensor is enhanced for long-term use under water.
