AW-Lake introduces the EDGE Flow Sensor with Bluetooth

AW-Lake Company has introduced the EDGE Flow Sensor with optional Bluetooth for use in flow meter applications requiring an analogue, pulse or Modbus signal to a PLC or other control systems.

Easily mounted on meters including AW-Lake Gear Meters and Turbine Flow Meters, the EDGE Flow Sensor outputs a frequency, current or analogue signal that will give users more flexibility with their installation, especially when unsure of readout equipment or a control room interface.

With the ability to force the sensor to output a frequency or analogue signal, connections to a user interface are verifiable without the need to run fluid flow. The sensor offers three optional pulse output configurations including push/pull, sinking, and sourcing. A Modbus output adds additional system compatibility for more advanced operations.

A Bluetooth mobile application gives users the ability to monitor and program flow meters using a smartphone without having to be directly in front of the unit. Operators can also remotely configure, set parameters, fine-tune adjustments and troubleshoot the sensor remotely using a mobile device. The application also supports basic scaling and advanced functions, allowing for remote correction of non-linear flow meters to keep a linear analogue output.

Using the mobile application, users can turn a smartphone or tablet into a wireless flow monitor.

Designed with a significantly reduced package size, the EDGE Flow Sensor fits in small spaces and can connect to a PC via standard USB-C cable. Designed to be resistant to vibration, the sensor has no contact between the pickup nose and meter in order to minimise the chance of its damage due to rough handling or installation.
