Section 1 Introduction

500 Series Metering Flow Switches have been created to provide a more effective monitoring and control capability for applications in which liquid flow rates up to 4.5 GPM (17 LPM) must be monitored and controlled over extended temperature and pressure ranges.

Capabilities required for extreme operating conditions have been incorporated in the basic product, allowing the size-reduced metering flow switch to be used in situations in which specialized products were previously required.

The 500 Series Metering Flow Switches have been developed from Proteus’ experience in satisfying the needs of thousands of demanding users in widely diverse applications since 1978.

Section 2 Features and Functions

Flow ranges from 0.15 to 4.5 GPM, 0.6 to 17 LPM.

Two flow ranges are provided in the 500 Series. Refer to Specifications on page 7.

Proteus 800 Series Metering Flow Switches formed in brass, polypropylene or stainless steel provide similar measurement and control capabilities for higher flow ranges than the 500 Series.

Calibrated 0-5VDC output

The 500 Series’ is calibrated to provide a 5 VDC output for 2.0 or 4.5 GPM (7.5 or 17 LPM). Actual flow rate can be determined by attaching a voltmeter. An optional scaleable digital voltmeter can be calibrated to provide a direct local display of flow rate.

Note

Elbows and other devices installed that induce swirling motion in the flowing liquid that are installed within 4 inches (16 cm) of the inlet port reduce the linear velocity of liquid through the flow sensor.

When such devices are present the actual flow rate through the flow sensor may be HIGHER than is suggested in Table 1.

Magnets

Hall-effect sensor

Section 3 How the flow sensor works

The rotor spins when liquid flows through the meter.

Magnets in the rotor switch a Hall-effect sensor mounted in the meter body.

The resulting pulse train is converted by the electronics to a voltage that is proportional to the linear velocity at which the liquid flows through the meter.

Switching

The measured output voltage is continuously compared to a user-selected trip point voltage. When the measured voltage is above the trip point, the built-in relay remains in its active state. If the measured voltage falls below the trip point due to reduced or stopped flow, the relay contacts open, signaling an alarm condition to your control system.

Metering

Accuracy of calibration to ± 2% of range is established against a flow standard with a certified accuracy of

± 0.5%. Calibration is traceable to a NIST reference. Linearity is better than ± 0.5%.

Section 5 Product certifications

500 Series Metering Flow Switches are CE marked for compliance with the EU Directive 89/336/EEC for

Electromagnetic Compatibility.

500 Series Metering Flow Switches have been Safety Certified by RWTUV as a low voltage, Class III devices.

Section 6 Installation

CAUTION!

It is generally undesirable to mount any plumbing connections directly over electronic controls or instruments.

WARNING!

If the 500 Series flow sensor is mounted in a vertical pipeline, any leakage from the topmost connection could enter the unit and cause permanent damage to the electronics.

Pipe or tubing mounting

If rigid piping or tubing is used, the 500 Series metering flow switch may be supported by direct connection to the pipe or tubing.

Panel mounting

Locate holes for 8-32 screws in the panel with 2.5” between centers. Spacing sleeves placed over the shaft of the securing screws are recommended to prevent the faceplate or rear cover of the sensor from making contact with the panel. Refer to Figure 1 for dimensions.

should you require DWG files for integration with your drawings.

500TRM-002 Page 8 of 22 March 2007

Plumbing Connections

Note

Before connecting a sensor into your fluid line, verify that the normal flow rates expected in that line are within the operating range of the sensor.

Extended use above the rated maximum flow rate of the sensor will reduce its useable life.

Note

It is recommended that connections to the stainless steel flow sensor be made with stainless steel or materials of similarly chemical inertness to minimize potential corrosion damage.

Note

The flow response of the sensor, and thus its calibration may be dependent on the internal diameter

(ID) of an incoming pipe, or the ID of a tube connection.

If the ID of your pipe or tube fitting where it connects to the inlet port is LESS than the value shown in

Table 2, calibration values may be invalid.

Appropriate calibration procedures can be applied to allow the 500 Series flow sensor to be used with pipes and connections with ID’s smaller than those shown in Table 2. Contact Proteus for assistance.

Table 2: Minimum ID of pipe or connection for calibrations to be valid.

Note

The flow response of 500 Series sensors and thus their calibration may be dependent on the form of the device attached to the inlet connection and other closely located up-stream devices.

Elbows, T-pieces, valves and filters located immediately up-stream from the flow sensor can introduce swirling motion to the liquid flow. The swirling motion reduces the linear velocity of the flow stream.

We recommend that a straight run of pipe of more than 10 x pipe ID (~4 inches or 10 cm) be used between the flow sensor and any up-stream devices to minimize these effects.

Appropriate calibration procedures must be used to provide an accurate flow measurement with elbows or T-pieces that must be attached directly to the inlet connection.

The 500 Series sensor is typically unaffected by the form or proximity of devices on its downstream side.

500TRM-002 Page 9 of 22 March 2007

Sensor Orientation

For the best results, 500 Series sensors should be mounted with the faceplate in the vertical plane.

Mounting the device with the flow connections uppermost can help eliminate entrained air from your system.

Flow Direction

The 500 Series Metering Flow Switch is not sensitive to flow direction. Flow can be introduced to the sensor from either side.

NPT pipe thread connections

Pipe threads seal by making metal-to-metal contact between male and female components.

Consequently they are particularly prone to the damaging effects of galling, which occurs when two surfaces move against each other under pressure. When installing pipe threads it is essential to use a high quality lubricating and sealing material.

Use Teflon tape or a PTFE-based liquid sealant to provide lubrication for the junction and a leak-tight connection at both input and output connections. Real-Tuff and Hercules are two of many suitable brands of PTFE-based sealants.

Do not over-tighten the connection. Refer to instructions for installation of the mating fittings for information on torque requirements.

Leak testing of all connections in your flow circuit is recommended. Pressurizing the system with air and external testing with a dilute soap solution can help identify leaking connections.

SAE straight thread connections

With these connectors, an O-ring makes the seal while the threads hold the connecting assembly in place. Straight thread connections should receive a small amount of high-pressure lubricant before installation to prevent galling.

Non-adjustable fittings

1. Bring the non-adjustable fitting into firm contact with the face of the port, using a wrench.

2. Check to be certain that the O-ring fits easily into the non-threaded receiving area of the port, and is not pinched.

500TRM-002 Page 10 of 22 March 2007

Adjustable fittings

1. Ensure that the locknut is positioned so the back-up washer is in contact with the beginning of the threads farthest from the end of the fitting.

2. Screw the fitting into the port until the back-up washer contacts the sealing face.

5. Tighten the locknut firmly against the back-up washer so the fitting assembly is held securely in place.

3. Check to be certain that the O-ring fits easily into the non-threaded receiving area of the port, and is not pinched or damaged.

4. Unscrew the fitting a maximum of one turn to position it in the desired direction.

Filtering

Your circulating fluid may contain particles. While not essential to the operation of the flow sensor, it is good practice to filter your fluid. A 100-micron filter is often used to remove rust and other particles from the fluid. This can increase the lifetime of pumps and other fluid system components as well as reducing wear in the sensor.

Fluid Temperature Range & Remote Mounting Electronics

If fluid temperatures will be outside the range of 0 - 85°C, the electronics package must be mounted remotely from the sensor.

Remote mounting may require customized changes to the sensors.

Please contact Proteus Applications for additional information.

Electrical Connections

Note

Only personnel familiar with the electrical circuit and control functions of the system in which the sensor is to be included should perform installation of this product.

WARNING!

Do NOT connect 24 VDC power to connection 3.

Connecting power to the output contact may cause permanent damage to the electronics.

500TRM-002 Page 11 of 22 March 2007

Electrical inputs and outputs are provided at a single eight-pin socket. An 8-pin connector providing screw fastening of up to #16 gauge conductors is provided with the 500 Series metering flow switch.

Replacement 8-pin connectors can be obtained from Proteus, P/N 440157 or from electrical distributors,

On-Shore Technology P/N EDZ1550/8, or Digi-Key P/N ED1966-ND.

See Section 10 for installation of Digital Display units.

Section 7 Selecting Trip Points

Adjustment of trip points in steps of 6% of the rated flow range is made with a 16-step switch and a single turn potentiometer accessed through the cover of the electronics.

Tool Required

: A fine flat screwdriver

1. Identify the Part Number of the 500 Series metering flow switch being adjusted. This is noted on the product label.

2. Select the Trip Point Flow chart that applies to your metering flow switch.

3. Look across the row to identify the flow rate that is immediately higher than your required trip point.

4. Look up the column with the selected trip point flow rate to identify the required switch position.

5. Peel away the protective label covering the 16-step switch and the fine adjustment potentiometer.

The orientation of the fine adjustment potentiometer is indicated by two indents.

March 2007

6. Check that the indicator of the fine adjustment potentiometer is pointed towards the 12 o’clock position. If necessary, use the screwdriver to turn the fine adjustment potentiometer so that the indicator is pointed towards the 12 o’clock position.

7. With the screwdriver, turn the 16-step switch so that its indicating arrow points towards the selected position switch position.

Turning the switch CLOCKWISE selects a HIGHER trip point.

Turning the switch ANTI-CLOCKWISE selects a LOWER trip point.

8. Adjust the position of the fine potentiometer as required.

When the potentiometer is turned clockwise the trip point is

INCREASED.

When the potentiometer is turned fully counter-clockwise the trip point is

DECREASED.

9. Replace the protective label. Write the selected trip point on the label.

Section 8 Measuring Flow Rate

The voltage output by the 500 Series metering flow switches allows the flow rate of the liquid passing through the device to be estimated.

While the flow response curves of the 500 Series metering flow switches are extremely linear, they do

NOT pass through zero, requiring the use of a linear regression formula or calibration graphs to derive the actual flow rate from the measured output voltage.

Calibration curves and derived look-up tables obtained from measurement of multiple sensors are shown below.

The equations under each graph may be used with PLC or other control devices to obtain a more accurate measure of flow.

S ection 10 Cleaning and Maintenance

Maintenance of the 500 Series Metering flow switch is normally limited to cleaning the chamber in which the rotor spins and an annual recalibration.

C leaning the 500 Series flow sensor

T he frequency of cleaning will vary with the type and cleanliness of the liquid bei ng run through the flow meter. In most cases, annual cleaning immediately prior to recalibration is sufficient.

To ols required:

Wrenches to disconnect the flow meter fr om your flow circuit.

Adjustable face spanner wrench similar to Eugene Ernst Produ cts P/N EEPS5400 Medium

Alcohol, water or a dilute de tergent solution.

Refer to Section 12 for replacement parts that may be required during maintenance.

500TRM-002 Page 18 of 22 March 2007

Cleaning the 500 Series Flow Sensor

1. Turn OFF the liquid flow in your flow circuit and remove the 500 Series sensor from your system. Place the sensor on a clean surface.

Remove the faceplate from the sensor body using a face-spanner wrench.

3. Remove the faceplate from the flow meter.

4. Remove the rotor and stainless steel shaft

from the flow cavity.

Remove the O-ring from the faceplate

5. Using a soft cloth dampened with water, alcohol or a light detergent solution, clean debris and dirt

from the rotor, the stainless steel shaft, the inside surfaces of faceplate and the surfaces of the flow

cavity

6. Inspect the bearing surface of the rotor. If the bearing surface is worn or not round, replace the rotor.

Inspect the stainless steel shaft. If the shaft shows signs of scoring or other wear, replace the shaft.

500TRM-002 Page 19 of 22 March 2007

7. Inspect the O-ring to ensure that it is not

brittle, cracked or otherwise damaged.

If necessary replace with a #132 O-ring of a

material compatible with the liquid being

passed through the flow meter.

Position the O-ring on the inner rim of the

faceplate.

8. Position the stainless steel shaft in the hole

in the center of the rotor cavity.

Position the rotor over the shaft

9. Position the faceplate so the shaft fits into

the hole in its center, and start screwing the

faceplate into position.

Note

A small amount of high pressure lubricant

applied to the threads may simplify assembly.

Caution

It should not be necessary to use high force

to secure the faceplate. If you find

resistance remove the faceplate and restart

the threads

10. After the faceplate has been hand-tightened,

fit the face wrench.

Tighten the faceplate into position by taking

a half-turn from the hand-tight position or

tighten to a torque of 40 in-lbs.

11. Install the flow meter in your system. Turn on liquid flow and check for leaks at the faceplate and

connecting ports. Tighten all connections as required to eliminate leaks

Section 11 Calibration & Recalibration

Note

500 Series sensors are calibrated at Proteus with water at temperatures ranging from 22 to 28C.

Changes in fluid type can alter the calibrated response of the sensor.

Large changes in liquid temperature can alter the calibrated response of the sensor.

Please contact Proteus Technical Support if a specialized calibration is needed.

Note

As described in the Plumbing Connections section on page 10, the response of the 500 Series flow sensor may be affected by the way in which the sensor is connected to your system.

The 500 Series metering flow switch has been calibrated during manufacture to provide an output of 5.0 VDC for 2.00 GPM or 4.5 GPM with straight pipe connections..

Customized calibration procedures can be performed to change the flow rate corresponding to 5.0 VDC, for fluids other than water and with connections with internal diameters less than those used in the flow sensors. (See Table 2, page 10).

Recalibration

The calibration of the 500 metering flow switch should be checked at 12-month intervals, and recalibrated as required. Re-calibration may be accomplished in either of two ways:

Calibration by Proteus

To obtain a price quotation and a Return Material Authorization number for recalibration of your flow meter, contact [email protected]

or call (650) 964-4163.

When received at Proteus your flow meter will:

1. Have its output measured and recorded in the as-received state.

2. The rotor, stainless steel shaft and sealing O-ring will be replaced.

3. The flow cavity will be cleaned and the device reassembled..

4. The unit will be recalibrated to its original specification against reference standards whose calibrations are statistically controlled against NIST-traceable standards.

5. A new calibration certificate will be issued.

6. A new calibration label will be attached to the flow meter.

Direct calibration against NIST-traceable standards is optionally available.

Calibration by another laboratory.

The calibrating laboratory will issue certificates and labels identifying the calibration status of your metering flow switch.

Please advise your selected calibration laboratory to contact Proteus for calibration instructions.
