Turbine Flowmeter microLinK Smart Pickoff

FTI's microLinK pickoff may be the world’s smallest & most compact temperature/viscosity/density compensated linearized CANbus turbine pickoff: It may be micro but it has mega capabilities!

Two versions are available providing: a) a configurable linearized flow pulse output (mass or volume), a CANbus output providing access to all process variables & totalizers and a raw frequency output, or b) a 0/4-20mA linearized flow output, a configurable linearized flow pulse output (mass or volume) and a CANbus output providing access to all process variables & totalizers. Up to three fluid density/viscosity profiles can be stored in microLinK enabling the user to seamlessly switch between fluids on the fly using CANbus communications.

The microLinK is easily configured using and all data is available using Windows®-based Visual LinK programming software.
