Siemens Transmag 2: Troubleshooting on slurry flows
Does anyone have experience troubleshooting the Siemens Transmag 2 on slurry flows? What resistances should we see on the reference coils? The measurement coils range from 8-20 ohms, and we see a similar value on the reference. Is this correct? Also, does anyone know where the reference coils are?.
Expert’s answer: Siemens Transmag 2
Yes, indeed, and you should too! When in doubt, read the manual for your Siemens Transmag 2. You can’t go wrong with the Word of God, your Siemens bible in this case. You’ll find enlightenment in the SITRANS FM Transmag 2 manual. For instance, your reference coil? It lives between X55 and X66. As for the coil resistance, you gotta have digits between 0.5 to 3.0 ohms.
And if you need more information that you can’t locate in the manual, get in touch with your friendly neighborhood Siemens representative. He wants to keep your business, so he’ll dish everything he knows about your Siemens Transmag 2 device. Now get those coils straightened out! (Not literally, of course. You’ll ruin your device.)

I need a flow meter, but I don’t know exactly which type. The product will be process water with a maximum flow range of 100 m³/h and ambient temperature. It won’t need much accuracy because it’s just a monitoring application.
