back to products


The FM300(1-channel)/ FM600(2-channel) is a freely programmable frequency / analog transmitters with display unit. Through its multi-function input frequency processing and the up to 2 analog outputs (current/voltage) of each channel and the assessable digital outputs, the device is ideally suited for the display of instantaneous flow with simultaneous assessable for counting pulse water meter with main and secondary points. Especially for water meters with bypass a scaled summation is integrated (only FM600). A low level suppression is shiftable. Both the instantaneous flow rates and the meter quantites are outputted added.


The main area of application is the through-flow measuring at water meters. Further applications are the measuring of rotation speed or energy consumption.
