The FMA-1600A Series mass and volumetric Omega's flow meters use the principle of differential pressure within a laminar flow field to determine the mass flow rate. A laminar flow element (LFD) insdie the meter forces the gas into laminar (streamlined) flow. Inside this region, the Poiseuille equation dictates that the volumetric flow rate be linearly related to the pressure drop along a fixed distance of the LFE. This, along with the viscosity of the gas, is used to accurately determine the volumetri flow rate. Separate absolute temperature and pressure sensors are incorporated and correct the volumetric flow rate to a set of standard conditions. This standardized flow rate is commonly called the mass flow rate and is reported in units such as standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM) or standard liters per minute (SLM).

Standard units include a 0 to 5 V output (4 to 20 mA optional) and RS232 communications. The gas select feature can be adjusted from the front of the keypad or via RS232 communications. Volumetric flow, mass flow, or absolute pressure, and temperature can be viewed or recorded through the RS232 connection. It is also possible to multi-drop up to 26 units on the same serial connection to a distance of 125'. These flowmeters are also available in a portable version for use in the field (-B models).

Accuracy: ±(0.8% of rdg + 0.2% FS)
Repeatability: ±0.2%
Turndown Ratio: 200:1
Response Time: 10 ms typical default response time for 63.2% of a step change. A variable register allows response time to be field adjustable to a certain extent via RS232 communications. The primary trade-off for response time is signal noise

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Mass Flowmeter Easy to setup and reliable. Easy to use. Remote operation needs expert installation but is easy to use after setup. Price could be lower to have a broader application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised Worked as advertised. No issues. seems robust for out testing environment

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 units defective out of box The negative terminal was shorted to the body of the sensor and would not work unless the sensor was installed isolated from ground, which we couldn't do in our application. They are easy to disassemble, and the problem was obvious, as one of the wires that connects to the terminal extended about 1/2" past the point that it was soldered at, so the bare wire came into contact with the body of the sensor when it was assembled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Dependable Unit These units are very dependable. Have bought them on several occasions. Omega also has a good return policy which I had used because I had mistakenly bought the wrong unit. It was very painless to get it sent back and order the correct one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable I have bought these in the past and never had any issues. Its why we continue to buy them.

hi how i can connect it to o2 generator @65 psi thank you

Asked by: asdsand
Hi, you may connect to the mass flow meter via a machine thread or NPT connection with sufficient straight run pipe or tubing, 10x the diameter of the pipe or tube upstream and 5x the diameter of the pipe or tubing downstream.
