The FlowGuard 6280 is an advanced transmitter that is designed with the user and installer in mind. The 6280 eliminates many of the problems that traditional sensors suffer from and provides as much flexibility as possible. Another feature is that it’s possible by simple configuration to convert a bidirectional sensor to uni- directional by a simple menu option.
To simplify the use the unit has many field selectable features such as, Unit (mBar, InchH2O and Pasc), Output (mA and Volt) and many different out put ranges, measuring range etc. To further reduce problems that many other “low cost” sensors have that use potentiometers and switches, the 6280 uses display and push buttons.
To further improve the already extremely accurate and long term stable sensor there is also an option for auto-calibration for applications where zero drift is not accepted, such as in hard to reach locations. With the optional relays a simple alarm function can be achieved. The Modbus option is another feature that can create great cost reduction for many installations. Another cost saver is that bidirectional sensors can be changed to unidirectional mode. Sensor technology is based on a silicon-based membrane and with a capacitive technique that assures the accuracy and stability.
