Precision Digital F030 Fluidwell Batch Controllers

Fluidwell Batch Controllers
F030

The F030 is a straight forward but basic Batch Controller. The operator can enter a batch quantity easily or execute repeating batches. During the batch, the preset value is displayed as well as the batched (or remaining) quantity and the units of measurement. The automatic self-learning overrun correction will ensure an accurate result each batch again. A wide selection of options further enhance this models capabilities, including Intrinsic Safety.

Display
The display has large 17mm (0.67 ) and 8mm (0.31 ) digits which are used to display the batched quantity and the preset value simultaneously. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection. A seven digit resettable day total is available as well as an eleven digit non-resettable accumulated total. All are backed-up in EEPROM memory every minute. A smart display update function achieves a readable display even at -40°C / -40°F.

Backlight 
For those applications where readability during day and night is an issue, a bi-color backlight is available. The background color green or amber and the intensity can be adjusted from the keyboard. The display is a transflective type, which means that a high contrast reading is guaranteed in full sunlight as well as during the night. This backlight option is available Intrinsically Safe.

Configuration 
All configuration settings are accessed via a simple operator menu which can be pass-code protected. Each setting is clearly indicated with an alphanumerical description, therefore avoiding confusing abbreviations. Once familiar with one F-series product, you will be able to program all models in the series without a manual. All settings are safely stored in EEPROM memory in the event of sudden power failure.

Control Output 
One output is available for one stage control of smaller batches. The output signal can be a passive NPN or an active PNP transistor, or an isolated electro-mechanical relay. Signal Input The F030 will accept most pulse and analog input signals for flow or mass flow measurement. The input signal type can be selected by the user in the configuration menu without having to adjust any sensitive mechanical dip-switches, jumpers or trimmers. The analog input version is even available as 4 - 20mA input loop powered display.

Power Supply 
Several power supply options are available to power the F030 and sensor. Also a battery powered version with a long life lithium battery which will last up to five years. For analog sensors, a 4 - 20mA loop powered version is available as well. A real sensor supply is offered with the 24V AC / DC or 115 - 230V AC power supply option.

Hazardous Area 
For hazardous area applications, this model has been ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA certified Intrinsically Safe for gas and applications, with an allowed operational temperature of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F). A flame proof enclosure with ATEX certification offers the rating II 2 GD EExd IIB T5.

Enclosures 
Various types of enclosures can be selected, all ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA approved. As standard the F030 is supplied in an GRP panel mount enclosure. Most popular is our aluminum field mount enclosure with IP67 / NEMA 4X rating. Both European or U.S. cable gland entry threads are available.
