Fluidwell F132 Intrinsically safe Batch Controller

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

The F132 is a straight forward two stage batch controller with the unique function to send a “print receipt” command to a printer after every batch. The operator can easily enter a batch quantity, send an extra “print receipt” command or execute repeating batches.
During the batch, the preset value is displayed as well as the batched (or remaining) quantity including the units of measurement. The automatic self-learning overrun correction ensures an accurate result after each batch.
