FMQ Electromagnetic Flow Meter

Flow Meter, CIP Control, IO-Link

Electromagnetic inductive flow and volume meter for accurate measurement of media with a minimum conductivity >5 µS/cm | With IO-Link

The FMQ is an extrelemy versatile, robust and reliable electromagnetic flow meter for all conductive media. The performance spectrum is tailored to almost all applications, including batching and filling.

  • For liquids, slurries, and pastes with solids content < 5%
  • Very high accuracy ±0,5 % ±2 mm/s and reproducibility also with low flow rate, ideal for dowing and filling applications
  • Suitable for flow rates of 30 l/h to 280 000 l/h (8 gal/hr to 80,000 gal/hr)
  • CIP/SIP cleaning to max. 130 °C (212 °F), max. 30 minutes
  • 3-A conform
  • Compact electronics with housing in stainless steel
  • Vacuum-tolerant PFA coating for pig cleaning and maximum resistance to aggressive media
  • All details about IO-Link properties, parameters, diagnostics, events and more can be found in the IODDViewer. Just click here.
  • Add-On Instructions (AOI) are available at

FMQ - Benefits

It has everything you really need

The FMQ electromagnetic flow meter is an extremely versatile, robust and reliable device for all conductive media. The performance spectrum is tailored to almost all applications, including dosing and filling applications.


» FMQ with IO-Link: Thanks to Flex-Hybrid technology, you can use digital or analog communication or both in parallel

» Extremely compact: Minimal size of measuring body and electronics allow easy, vibration-insensitive integration into almost all applications

» Extremely robust: All components are completely made of stainless steel. The magnetic field coils of the measuring system are consistently encapsulated, which guarantees permanently reliable, precise measuring results even in very harsh environments with strong vibrations or pressure surges

» Extremely reliable: Completely protected against moisture, corrosion and vibrations; vacuum-proof measuring tube lining made of high-quality PFA; process temperature up to 100°C (212 °F), CIP-capable, pigging possible.

» Always accurate: Automatic signal processing ensures correct measured values even when changing media (e.g. milk/CIP cleaner)

» Easy commissioning and operation: User-friendly, rotatable display with optical buttons, no opening of the housing, no mechanical buttons, for quick and easy programming. Remote version optional.

» Manufacturer-independent process connection: Standard aseptic flange according to DIN 11864, with O-ring (no sanitary-sensitive surface seal), pipe standard DN10 ...DN100 (1/2”...4”)
