EGE Flow Sensors

Amplifier · Series 400

Amplifiers for use with equipment in hazardous areas 
  • [EEx ia] IIC
  • LED adjustment
  • Cable-break monitoring
  • Time delay
  • DIN rail mounting

These amplifiers are designed for fitting onto standard DIN rails. They feature an LED line
 to give a visual indication of flow rates and for ease of setting. The red LED indicates that
 the flow relay is not activated. A yellow LED indicates that flow has just exceeded the set
 threshold value and the flow relay is activated. Four green LED's indicate that flow has
 exceeded the set threshold value by between 30 and 100% and the flow relay is activated.
 An additional output indicating temperature can be set by potentiometer. When the pre-set
 temperature is exceeded, the relay is activated and a red LED is displayed. A time delay
 function is also standard on these units which is adjustable between 0 and 25 seconds. The
 slimline version is for DC operation. This device does not have the temperature or time
 delay functions. It offers the user a lower cost alternative when only a flow out-put is
 required, or when space in the panel is limited.

Monitoring and additional functions



The amplifier SZA Ex... can operate with sensors of the series 400 which are allowed for Zone 1 (ST...) or Zone 2 (STS.../STEX). The amplifiers have to be mounted outside the hazardous area. The amplifiers have in addition to the standard functions a complete cable-break and short circuit monitoring. Failures are by falling the relay as well as visually through the red LED shown.
