Burkert Expands Aesthetic Clean Line Element Range with New 'Future-Proofed' Stainless Steel Digital Flow Transmitters
Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has expanded its ELEMENT modular stainless steel range of products for total solutions in process measurement and control, with new Type 8026, 8036 and 8076 digital flow transmitters.
The new transmitters are robust (IP65/67 wash down resistant), aesthetic clean line products offering enhanced technical features such as future- proofed system architecture and software, removable programmable backlit displays, and simplified programming via joystick.
The ELEMENT flow transmitters are available in three configurations, Basic to Advanced, to meet all OEM and user budgetary requirements. The Basic unit has one 4-20mA and one NPN transistor output, while the most advanced unit has two NPN/PNP transistor outputs and two 4-20mA outputs.
Importantly, both units comply with the stringent UL safety standards, and provide long-lasting and reliable ingress protection rated IP 65/67. In addition, the stainless steel housings of the flow transmitters are durable and resistant to cleaning chemicals, as well as enhancing the look of any system with their high-quality appearance. These features make the flow transmitters ideal not only for use in water treatment and process automation, but also in food and beverage, dairy, brewing, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
The Innovative operating concept of the Element series of flow transmitters includes removable displays that are programmable and equipped with backlighting for easier operation. All customer-specific settings, such as the measuring range, units of measurement, pulse output and filters are configured directly at the device.
The programming itself is achieved via a joystick. By moving this unit horizontally and vertically, lines and rows are selected and activated; pressing the joystick to set the parameters, define and save configurations and to start the unit.
The clean line stainless steel housings of the ELEMENT series integrate a future-proof system and system architecture, with a new processor and new software to optimise the performance of the transmitter sensors. To guarantee maximum reliability and quality, the same circuits are used for conductivity and pH/ORP measurement as those used in Bürkert's well proven ELEMENT transmitter models, Type 8222 and 8202.
