Fluidwell F030 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 F030 is a straight forward but easy-to-use batch controller. The operator can easily enter a batch quantity or execute repeating batches. During the batch, the preset value is displayed as well as 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.
