The calculation program is a tool to calculate flow velocity, flow rate or inside pipe diameter.
The calibration factor [CGA] is used to adjust the temperature-viscosity compensation of the sensor to the characteristics of the oil used. The calibration factor influences the slope of the measurement characteristic of the flow measurement. The viscosity specified for the area of application of the sensor (technical data) applies to an oil temperature of 40 °C. For this oil, the sensor automatically compensates the viscosity change in the temperature range of 20...70 °C. The viscosity at 40 °C is not variable. The specified compensation characteristic is openly documented in the ifm calculation tool. If the viscosity behaviour deviates via the temperature due to additives in the oil used, the deviation can be reduced through calibration.
