November 19, 2018 – AW-Lake Company has introduced the FAC-S analog output sensor, which hardwires with any flow meter to provide voltage, current or Bluetooth connectivity of readings.

The microprocessor-based FAC-S sensor supports process monitoring, data acquisition and signal conditioning in various industries. It is ideal for use on any AW-Lake gear or turbine flow meter, and 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. 

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 tasks is performed from the convenience of a smartphone 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. Using the Bluetooth mobile application, users have a wireless flow monitor in their hands.

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