The design expands usability at ambient temperatures of -40 to +158 F (-40 to +70 C) and is designed to desensitize the device to excessive vibrations. The entirely digital internal communication system ensures maximum accuracy for compact and remote devices without requiring special or proprietary cabling. The FCB400 flowmeter is designed to save calibration data as well as all user-configuration data and totalizers, which are linked to the sensor in a non-detachable way. This automatic function synchronizes configuration data in the sensor and the transmitter after power has been switched on.

Application-specific software packages are designed to expand the FCB400 flowmeter's use. The FillMass function is designed to control the downstream valve via a special digital output. Another function, DensiMass, uses predefined characteristics of liquids such as alcohol and sugar or starch solutions, enabling the precise determination of mixture concentrations via high-precision density measurement. The packages can determine the net mass or volume flow rate as well. Another innovation is the on-board verification function called VeriMass, which performs continuous self-diagnostics and detects and alerts the user to possible erosions or coating inside the sensor without removing the device or interrupting the measurement.
