    Type Description

    The mass flow controller (MFC)/mass flow meter (MFM) Type 8742 for gases is suitable for a wide range of applications, e.g. metal and glass manufacturing or processing, fermentation processes, test benches or filling systems and packaging machines. Type 8742 is available in two variants: The variant with several analogue or digital (communication) interfaces and the variant with only a CANopen-based interface. The latter is suitable for integration into existing CANopen networks or - in combination with the fieldbus gateway Type ME43 - for integration in all common industry standards for Industrial Ethernet or fieldbus. This variant is tailor-made for applications with many control loops. Up to 32 MFCs/ MFMs can be connected to one fieldbus gateway. Type ME43 transmits the internal CANopen-based communication to Industrial Ethernet and fieldbus standards. The Mass Flow Controller / Mass Flow Meter can always be switched between büS and CANopen communication. Type 8742 can be configured as required as an MFM or MFC. Optionally, up to four calibration curves can be stored in the device. The thermal MEMS sensor is located directly in the gas flow and achieves very fast response times and the highest level of measuring accuracy, with long-term stable calibration. As the actuator, a Bürkert direct-acting proportional valve guarantees high response sensitivity. The integrated PI controller ensures excellent control characteristics of the MFC. Type 8742 is especially designed for use in harsh environments thanks to its high IP protection class and explosion protection.

    • Nominal flow ranges from 0.010 l/min to 160 l/min
    • Highest measuring accuracy and repeatability with very fast response times
    • Long-term stability of the flow calibration
    • Easy device exchange due to configuration memory
    • Optional: ATEX II Cat. 3G/D or USP Class VI, FDA, EC 1935 conformity
