This product is an accessory for the following products:
The AW Gear Meters FAC-R frequency to analog converter sends analog signals from frequency output sensors to a PLC or control system. It offers excellent linearity, high temperature stability, and long-term stability. Bluetooth communication enables remote troubleshooting, programming, and set up from a mobile device.
The FAC-R software, available as a free download for Android devices, allows you to view real time flow rates, input frequencies, analog outputs, and set up units, time base, K factor, and max flow rates. The program will also allow you to force one or both outputs to a certain value and select different output ranges.
Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Occasional Flow Monitoring Requirement
The Background: Our customer is an industrial facility which includes a blind turbine flow sensor that transmits a 4-20mA signal to the control panel. They seek a means to add local monitoring to the turbine meter.
The Problem: The customer has the need to occasionally adjust a valve near the turbine meter which affects the flow.
The Solution: We recommended the AW Gear Meters FAC-R frequency to analog converter which is compatible with meters having amplified pulse output and allows the customer to perform the initial setup (k-factor, output span) and monitor the flow rate on a bluetooth connected Android device with the FAC Terminal App.
