MANUFACTURER: Flomec Instruments
GA500 Digital Flow Rate Totaliser – JSG Industrial Systems
The new Flomec GA500 is a 4-20mA transmitter that can accept reed switch, Hall-Effect, Open collector or low level sine wave. This allows the instrument to provide communication with process control equipment. It can be mounted on Flomec Oval gear meters or remotely mounted. It can also be used with the GPI Turbine meters when using the appropriate modules. This unit has not display and is used primarily for setting the 4-20mA prior to process electronics.

Overview of Flomec
Flomec electronics are available with a variety of features. Choosing the best combination of meter and electronics is easy using the Flomec system. Alternatively these instruments will suit any flow meter that provides wither a reed switch or NPN hall-effect output from the flow meter.
Depending on the instrument choice and selection the operator can then have a range of options in their system to be able to provide 4-20mA outputs, scaled pulse output, pulse output. R2-232 or 485 connections, BTU calculations with options in Intrinsically Safe (I.S) or Exd (Explosion Proof).
We can also supply batch controller options in single or two stage outputs that can easily be integrated into the operators system without too much complication. Provisions are made for some units to be able to handle AC & DC voltages supplies, with a range of mounting options. Notably the F127 that can provide details for fuel consumption readings [ see more in FCS systems]. Speak to your JSG distributor or JSG sales rep for more information.
