Notes:
7.30978.22.00 Supplement to the Quick Start 1/2

The Ex [nL] electrode circuit of the OPTIFLUX x300 C (compact flowmeter) is a internal circuit. Hence no Ui, Ii, Pi etc parameters are applicable for this circuit. Connections to mains (L, N or L+, L-), signal I/O (A, A-, A+, B, B-, C, C-, D and D-) and field current (7, 8, 9) can only be made when the flowmeter is not energized or when there is no explosive gas atmosphere surrounding the flowmeter. Used cable glands must have an IP degree to EN 60529 of at least IP65. The glands must be suitable for the types of cables used. For example the sealing ring must be suitable for the outer diameter of the cables. The temperature class T4 or T3 of OPTIFLUX x300 C and OPTIFLUX x000 F, depends on ambient temperature Ta and maximum process temperature Tp, according to following table: Ta < 40 C 130 140 40 Ta< 50 C 130 -50 Ta < 60 C 60 --

maximum Tp in C T4 T3

1.3 Serviceable parts


With exception of the mains fuse link, the IFC 300 electronic unit contains no serviceable parts. In case of replacement of the main fuse link, 5x20 mm fuse links to standard IEC 60 127-2, breaking capacity High, rated voltage 250 V, must be used: Mains 100230 VAC 1224 VDC 24 VAC/DC Mains fuse link 0,8 A Time-lag (T800H250V) 2,0 A Time-lag (T2H250V) 2,0 Time-lag (T2H250V)
