Compatible sensors are photoelecttric sensor PS-N series, fiber sensor FS-N series and laser sensor LV-N series.
Compatible with a variety of pipe materials and liquids, the FD-Q Series Clamp-on Flow Sensor can detect the flow rate of a liquid without the need for any pipe modification. This device enables the detection of a wide variety of liquids, including water (and pure water), oil, and chemicals. Detection is possible on both metal and resin pipes up to 2" in diameter. Unlike conventional sensors, installation and operation are also easy on high-pressure pipes. Costs are significantly reduced with the minimal installation required and the completely non-wetted design eliminates the risk of pressure loss or increased maintenance. Additionally, the large indicator provides real-time status information.
KEYENCE's FD-R Series Clamp-on Flow Meter is designed for pipes as large as 8". Installation is easy and requires only a screwdriver. The device can be mounted to a variety of materials including stainless steel, iron, copper, PVC, and resin. Both flow and temperature monitoring is possible for a wide variety of liquids—from water (including pure water) to oil, chemicals, and high-pressure liquids—at temperatures between -4°F and +248°F. The device does not come into contact with the liquid, so there is no risk of liquid-based corrosion or degradation, reducing maintenance time and costs. The rugged metal construction includes an easy-to-read indicator light, and data can be recorded directly on the device. The IP69K enclosure rating and NEMA4X compliance make this sensor both highly reliable and convenient for indoor and outdoor use.
