The KOBOLD MIK flow meter is used for measuring and monitoring small to medium-sized flows of conductive liquids in pipes. The sensor operates according to the electromagnetic measurement principle. According to Faraday’s Law of magnetic induction, a voltage is induced in a conductor moving through a magnetic field. The electrically conductive media acts as the conductor. The voltage induced in the media is proportional to the flow velocity and is therefore a value for the volumetric flow. The media must have a minimum conductivity of 30 μS /cm (200 μS /cm for U0 & U1 ranges) for proper operation. The induced voltage is picked up by two sensing electrodes which are in contact with the media and sent to the measuring amplifier. The flow rate will be calculated based on the cross-sectional area of the pipe. The measurement is not dependent on the process liquid and its material properties such as density, viscosity, and temperature. The device may be equipped with a switch, frequency, or analog output.

The device also has a universal compact-type electronic which features two configurable outputs and a rotatable display.
