Sensor Offers Analog Output Or Bluetooth Connectivity

AW-LAKE COMPANY introduces the FAC-S Analog Output Sensor that hardwires with any flow meter to provide voltage, current or Bluetooth connectivity of readings.  Suitable for use on any AW-Lake Gear or Turbine Flow Meter, the FAC-S produces a scalable voltage or current output for download to a PLC or other control system.  The sensor also supports a Bluetooth interface for remote programming and flow monitoring from a smart phone.  The microprocessor-based FAC-S Sensor supports process monitoring, data acquisition and signal conditioning in various industries.

 

A Bluetooth-enabled mobile app connects to the FAC-S, enabling wireless setup and troubleshooting from a mobile device.  The mobile application also supports basic scaling and advanced functions, allowing for remote correction of non-linear flow meters to keep a linear analog output.
