Flow Meter on Profibus...


Thread Starter


Hello List,
I am looking for an affordable Flow Meter to replace an existing unit. It outputs a pulse for every 1/10th liter of flow. I would like
to find a unit that can go directly on Profibus and do away with the counter modules.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you do not have special requirements for the flow meter (sanitary design, 3A compliance, etc) you could use Siemens Sitrans F flow meter but I believe it is Profibus PA not DP. If you have Siemens S7 hardware you could buy any HART flow meter and by the communications module for the PLC. I have also used Endress & Hauser and Micromotion with very good results, they offer pulse output and one or an other communications protocol.

Hope this helps.....
