AW-Lake FAC-S sensor offers analog output or Bluetooth connectivity of flow meter readings

Oak Creek, WI-based AW-Lake Co. says its new FAC-S™ analog output sensor hardwires with any flow meter to provide voltage, current or Bluetooth connectivity of readings. Ideal 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. It 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.

The Bluetoothenabled mobile app connects to the FAC-S, enabling wireless set-up and troubleshooting from a mobile device. Workers no longer need to walk to/from the device to monitor or adjust equipment. Instead, initial set-up and programming tasks are 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. The Bluetooth mobile application gives users a wireless flow monitor in their hands.

The FAC-S analog output sensor features a large input range from 0.25 to 5,000 Hz with five user-selectable outputs including 4-20mA, 0-5V, 1-5V, 0-10V and 2-10V. It joins the FACR, a remote version that interfaces with flow meters, tachometers, pumps, motors and linear/rotational encoders.
