Carrier-Frequency Pulse Amplifiers (VTE 02)

with single pickup, for screwing in for all KEM flow meters

The carrier frequency pickups detect the r.p.m. of KEM flow meters. Each passing of a tooth will be detected contactless and produces a pulse at the output. Therefore each pulse corresponds to a fixed volume and the frequency corresponds to the volume flow. Versions with Push Pull output or NAMUR output (option: open collector output npn) are available.

The pickup is screwed into the meter via a thread M14×1.5 (option UNF ½”-20). Accordingly the VTE 02 fit on all KEM measuring cells.
