Distance between sensor and transmitter for Promag 400

Flow Q&A

I have a remote Promag 400. How far can I install the transmitter from the sensor? Do I have some sort of distance limitation?

Expert’s answer: Distance between sensor and transmitter for Promag 400

Great question, because not everyone knows how to set up the distance between sensor and transmitter for Promag 400. So let’s talk about the amount of cable you should have between the sensor and the transmitter.

It all comes down to one simple factor. The conductivity of your fluid determines the maximum distance between the transmitter and sensor. If your fluid has a low conductivity, you’ll need a shorter cable between the sensor and transmitter.
