Type Description

Type 8746 for high flow rates 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 transfers a customer’s PLC fieldbus into the proprietary büS communication and operates all connected electronic devices. The communication of the devices can be switched from büS to CANopen. Given that, Type 8746 can also be integrated into an existing CANopen infrastructure. Type 8746 meters (MFM) or controls (MFC) the mass flow of gases using an inline sensor. The measurement is made in the main channel and therefore reaches very fast response times of a few hundred milliseconds. A direct-acting solenoid control valve as regulating unit ensures high sensitivity and good flow control of the device. Type 8746 is especially designed for use in harsh environments due to a low sensitivity to contamination, high IP and explosion protection.

  • Inline sensor for full scale rates from 20 lN/min up to 2500 lN/min
  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • Protection class IP65
  • Communication via fieldbus based on CANopen
  • Optional: ATEX II Cat. 3G/D
