Fluidwell F130 Safe Area Batch Controller

Robust Intrinsically Safe batch controllers for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F130 is a batch controller with two control outputs for two-stage batching or one-stage control with a scaled pulse output. The operator can enter a batch quantity easily or execute repeating batches.
During the batch, the preset value is displayed simultaneously with the batched or remaining quantity. The automatic self-learning overrun correction will ensure an accurate batch every time. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection.
