Nov. 28, 2017 - AW-Lake Company has introduced the FAC-R frequency to analogue converter that changes incoming sensor frequency to both current and voltage analog output.

FAC-R interfaces with a variety of frequency-out sensors and instrumentation, including flow meters, tachometers, pumps, motors, and linear/rotational encoders. An alternative to a PLC card, the converter is suitable for use in process monitoring, data acquisition and other applications when sending an analogue signal to a PLC or other control system, says the company. A Bluetooth communication interface supports both basic scaling and advanced functions using a tablet or smartphone, such as linearization table programming that helps improve output of non-linear devices or extend the range of a flow meter beyond its linear range. With the Bluetooth mobile application on a smartphone, users have a wireless flow monitor in their hands. Operators can utilize the Bluetooth capability on a mobile device for remote setup, troubleshooting, and reconfiguration. The FAC-R features an input range from 0.25Hz to 5 KHz with five user-selectable outputs including 4-20mA, 0-5V, 1-5V, 0-10V, and 2-10V.
