| This measuring principle is based on the Faraday law of induction. |
A conductor moving within a magnetic field induces electric tension. In a magnetic-inductive measurement device the flowing of the conductive medium represents this moving conductor. Two vertically located field coils generate a constant magnetic field. In the horizontal direction two stainless steel electrodes detect the induced electric tension. This tension is directly proportional to the flowing speed and can be converted into the flowing volume.
