Smart Plug-and-Play Flowmeter for Utilities

In industrial process measurement and automation, demand is steadily rising for simple, reliable and maintenance-free instruments in a pocket-sized format.

The new Picomag fulfills such requirements, making no compromise. Not only does it measure the flow of conductive fluids, but also their temperature.

Picomag offers easy commissioning with Bluetooth using its SmartBlue App, as well as seamless system integration thanks to IO-Link technology. This makes Picomag ready for Industry 4.0.

Benefits include: 

  • Reliable measuring and monitoring of industrial water, cooling water or warm water
  • Simultaneous measurement of flow and temperature
  • Time-saving device configuration even in difficult to reach places thanks to Bluetooth connectivity
  • Wireless and secure access to all device data by use of the intuitive SmartBlue App via Bluetooth
  • Flexible integration into all established fieldbus systems via IO-Link
  • User-friendly, auto-rotatable display, i.e. with automatic adjustment to mounting position

Due to its compact design, Picomag can be installed into any pipe up to 50mm (2in) in diameter, even in confined spaces. There are various process connections available, such as NPT-thread, R-thread, internal thread, Tri-Clamp or Victaulic.

Picomag is a cost-optimised solution for applications where the focus is on high repeatability (±0.2%) and thus reliable measured values such as for correctly measuring water flows or for minimising energy costs in utility applications.

Clear display with diagnostics field

The large, user-friendly display allows a quick reading of flow, temperature and totaliser values. Errors occurring during operations, such as a partial pipe filling or an exceeded temperature limit, are displayed via diagnostic symbols in accordance with NAMUR recommendation NE 107.

For optimal readability, the screen rotates automatically depending on the installation position. And last but not least, configuration parameters can be called up and monitored by simply knocking on the device.

Wireless configuration and commissioning via Bluetooth

With Bluetooth connection, it is possible to carry out wireless configuration or data retrieval over a distance of ten meters, even at installation sites that are difficult to access. The free-of-charge SmartBlue App from Endress+Hauser provides the user with quick and easy navigation through all device and diagnostic functions. The SmartBlue App is available for Android and iOS.

Optimal System Integration with IO-Link technology

Another highlight is the digital data transmission to process control systems via IO-Link technology. This communication standard can be combined with all conventional fieldbus systems, thus offering maximum flexibility of installation into existing infrastructures.

The IO-Link master allows comprehensive data access through the control room. Other advantages include the automatic transfer of parameters after a device replacement as well as low wiring effort as compared to conventional wiring.
