Mass Flow Controller (MFC) and Mass Flow Meter (MFM) - Type 8742

  • Mass Flow Meter (MFM) and Mass Flow Controller (MFC) Type 8742 for gases is suitable for a wide range of applications.
  • Type 8742 is available in two variants: The variant with several analog or digital (communication) interfaces and the variant with only a CANopen-based interface.
  • The latter is suitable for integration into existing CANopen networks or - in combination with the fieldbus gateway Type ME43 - for integration in all common industry standards for Industrial Ethernet or Fieldbus.
  • This variant is tailor-made for applications with many control loops. Up to 32 MFCs/ MFMs can be connected to one Fieldbus gateway.
  • Type ME43 transmits the internal CANopen-based communication to Industrial Ethernet and Fieldbus standards.
  • The Mass Flow Controller / Mass Flow Meter can always be switched between büS and CANopen communication.
  • Type 8742 configured as required as a Mass Flow Controller/Mass Flow Meter. Optionally, up to four calibration curves can be stored in the device.
  • The thermal MEMS sensor is located directly in the gas flow and achieves very fast response times and the highest level of measuring accuracy, with long-term stable calibration. As the actuator, a Bürkert direct-acting proportional valve guarantees high response sensitivity.

Key features

  • Nominal flow ranges: 0.010 l/min to 160 l/min
