The new Analog Transmitter SIGNAL 4.0

Conventional flow meter limit switches trigger an incident only in case the actual value is exceeding a defined maximum and / or is below a defined minimum.

However, increased requirements – in particular to meet the Industry 4.0 objectives – demand products which are much more advanced. They must be able to communicate and to collect machine and process data for analysing purposes i.e. documentation, quality matters or fault reports etc.

The SIGNAL 4.0 was developed to enable our float flow meters to permanently collect and subsequently report analogue data of the actual flow. The SIGNAL 4.0 is ultra compact, extremely reliable and works independent of the media used.

SIGNAL 4.0 – nicely small to manage major jobs

Compact Design

Due to dimensions conventional analog transmitters may not be mounted on all kind of measuring systems. One of the design objectives of the SIGNAL 4.0 was to develop an extremely compact product. As a result the dimensions of the box (31x17x9mm) allow to operate the SIGNAL 4.0 without problems even if there is minimal space.

Open Communication

The SIGNAL 4.0 delivers analog signals in conformity with industry standards (4-20 mA and 0-10V) for further use. The signals allow to communicate with systems regardless of the type of protocols needed or bus systems in place. The effect is the universal application of the SIGNAL 4.0 which is an important requirement for a comprehensive realization of the Industry 4.0 objectives.

Fits Everywhere

Universal application includes as well the capability of the SIGNAL 4.0 to be hooked on to all sorts of systems. Thanks to its ultra compact design in combination with an innovative mounting solution the SIGNAL 4.0 fits to every metal body float flow meter. The SIGNAL 4.0 is delivered ex works pre-mounted onto the Meister Strömungstechnik® flow meters. For the benefit of the customers this eliminates the need for a retroactive calibration.
