SMC has improved its range with the introduction of a 3-colour digital
flow switch, the PFMC Series. Designed for large flow rates up to 2000 l/min,
it is available in three compact models, all of which feature an IP65 enclosure
cover, making it suitable for dusty and wet environments.
SMC, the worldwide leading expert in pneumatics, has designed a compact digital
flow switch for a wide range of applications including monitoring the flow of
the air for spray painting. Other applications include the ability to measure
levels of leakage in a gas cylinder, thanks to accumulated indication which
shows the operating flow rate or residual amount of N2. It also acts as an aid
for energy saving activities thanks to the numerical control of the flow consumption
of equipment and lines.
The series features a 3-colour display that can be rotated 360° in increments
of 45° to suit individual installation conditions. To provide easy visual
identification of abnormal values, the display colour can be changed for different
output conditions, plus the addition of a 2-screen display saves time and makes
it easier to interpret the data as both set and accumulated values can be displayed
at the same time.
The PFMC also offers further operating and labour efficiencies thanks to its
fast response time of just 0.05 seconds.
SMC said: “We are always looking to improve our models so that we constantly
respond to our customers’ needs. The PFMC is now one of the most compact
flow switches available on the market. With its 3-colour easy to read display
and its M8 standard connector, which makes installation and wiring easier,
initial feedback has been extremely positive and we are confident that it will
be a popular addition to our existing range.”
