  SMC switches on new 3-colour display IP65 digital flow switch

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.”
