Type Description

Type 8742 can be configured either as MFC or MFM and is intended for the use in a büS or CANopen network. The büS network technology which is based on CAN physics was developed by Bürkert especially for applications with quite a number of control loops run by Industrial Ethernet or other fieldbuses. The System Control Unit (SCU) Type ME2X converts the customer’s Ethernet communication into the proprietary büS and operates all connected electronic devices. The communication of the devices can be switched from büS to CANopen. Given that, Type 8742 can also be integrated into an existing CANopen infrastructure. Type 8742 measures (MFM) or controls (MFC) the mass flow of gases using a MEMS sensor. The sensor is in direct contact with the gas and therefore reaches very fast response times of a few hundred milliseconds. Furthermore, the measurement is independent from pressure or temperature deviations. The MFC/MFM can be optionally calibrated for two different gases, the user is able to switch between them. Type 8742 is especially designed for use in harsh environments due to high IP and explosion protection.

  • Direct flow measurement in MEMS technology
  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • Very fast response time
  • Communication via fieldbus based on CANopen
  • Protection class IP65; optional: ATEX II Kat. 3G/D
