Following Faraday's law of magnetic induction, a voltage is induced in a conductor moving through a
Ue: Induced voltage
B: Magnetic induction (magnetic field)
L: Electrode spacing
v: Flow velocity
In the electromagnetic measuring principle, the flowing medium is the moving conductor. The
voltage induced (U e ) is proportional to the flow velocity (v) and is supplied to the amplifier by means
of two measuring electrodes. The flow volume (Q) is calculated via the pipe cross-section (A). The DC
magnetic field is created through a switched direct current of alternating polarity.
Formulae for calculation
- Induced voltage Ue = B · L · v
- Volume flow Q = A · v
The device consists of a transmitter and a sensor.
Two device versions are available:
- Compact version transmitter and sensor form a mechanical unit.
- Remote version - transmitter and sensor are mounted in separate locations.
