SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION
The OMEGA®FLSC-18B High Accuracy Integral Signal
Conditioner is designed for direct mounting onto OMEGA
Series FTB-100 and 200 Turbine Meters.
The input circuitry of the signal conditioners has been designed
to receive and condition the low level turbine meter signals
while rejecting unwanted noise and spurious signals. A signal
threshold control is provided which allows the user to set the
input sensitivity above the ambient noise level, thereby
eliminating any false signal on the output.
The output signal is a DC current (4-20 mA) which is
proportional to flow rate. The FLSC-18B is powered by a user
supplied, filtered DC voltage. An on board regulator provides
the required regulation and noise rejection.
A zero and span potentiometer allow for simple field
adjustment of the analog output from the signal conditioner.
SECTION 2 INSTALLATION
Remove the Packing List and verify that all equipment has been
received. If there are any questions about the shipment, please
call OMEGA Customer Service Department.
Upon receipt of shipment, inspect the container and equipment
for any signs of damage. Take particular note of any evidence of
rough handling in transit. Immediately report any damage to
the shipping agent.
The carrier will not honor any claims unless all shipping material is saved
for their examination. After examining and removing contents, save
packing material and carton in the event reshipment is necessary.
2.2 INSTALLATION OF THE FLSC-18B
The FLSC-18B should be placed in a convenient location which
maintains access to the unit should repairs or readjustment be
If the unit is mounted on a turbine flowmeter in an explosion
proof conduit enclosure, orientate the flowmeter and run
conduit to prevent the accumulation of moisture in the conduit
enclosure as much as is practical. In addition, assure electronics
will not be overheated by hot process lines.
