FAC-S Analog Sensor Provides Bluetooth for Flow Meter Readings

The FAC-S Analog Output sensor from QW Lake hardwires with any flow meter to provide voltage, current, or Bluetooth connectivity of readings. It 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. Workers no longer need to walk to/from the device to monitor or adjust equipment. Instead, initial setup and programming is performed from the convenience of a smart phone or tablet. 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. With the Bluetooth mobile application, users have a wireless flow monitor in their hands. The sensor’s input can range from 0.25Hz to 5,000 Hz with five user-selectable outputs including 4 to 20mA, 0 to 5V, 1 to 5V, 0 to 10V, and 2 to 10V.
