Flow Detector Type FD

Description

The series FD flow detector, nominal size 12, detects a preset flow rate and can be used for various monitoring functions. Typically, the flow detector is used for mobile applications in which auxiliary actuators are supplied in parallel from one pressure source. This is required, for example, as a monitoring function for steering pumps in mobile machines.

Advantages

  • Complies with safety requirements of EN ISO 13849
  • High pressure rating, with safety factor of 3
  • Low pressure losses
  • Wide viscosity range
  • Plug connection with M12 A coding for protection class IP 67
  • Non-contact switching
  • Integrated PTC thermistor module (short-circuit protected)
  • Stainless steel body, other exposed parts with zinc-nickel coating
  • For line-mounting installations
