The IFC 400 helps detect external influences such as excessive vibration, temperature extremes, and magnetic field effects, and also detects process influences like chemicals and excessive sedimentation in the liquid.

To detect these influences, the IFC 400 has a self-diagnostic function covering three aspects: process conditions, device functioning, and out-of-spec testing. The process measurement check detects leakages, contamination, liner deformation, and air entrainment in the process liquid. The device function self-check continuously monitors electronics and sensor hardware. Out-of-spec testing detects any sudden unexplained flow changes, linearity issues, and uncertain measurements.

The IFC 400 comes in two versions, a compact version (IFC 400 C) and field mounted version (IFC 400 F). Both versions feature aluminum housing, which can either be wall-mounted or rack-mounted. The product has the extensive diagnostics needed for advanced requirements, such as NE 107, and also has ATEX and IECEx certifications.

This 4-wire product provides a variety of outputs. It has 4…20 mA analog outputs. Its discrete outputs include frequency, pulse, and status. Its digital outputs include the HART7 protocol. When combined with Krohne’s OPTIFLUX 4000 flow sensor, the products form the SIL2/3 certified OPTIFLUX 4400 electromagnetic flowmeter, ideal for safety instrumented systems and applications that require high accuracy.
