April 22, 2020 -- Flows.com and Assured Automation announce the release of the ABC-2020 Automatic Batch Controller. The ABC works with any meter that has a pulse output and either a valve or pump. The operator uses the arrow keys to set the batch volume, then presses the start button. The valve opens or the pump turns on. The meter measures the liquid throughput and reports it to the controller. The controller closes the valve or turns the pump off when the set total is reached.
The ABC-2020 features the BIG Blinking Blue Button. This start/stop button also indicates the controller status, blinking every second while a batch is running and 10 times per second when the batch is near completion.
Typical applications include:
Water Treatment & Municipal:
- Filling trucks for bulk water delivery
- Dispensing from truck to customers
- Cold or hot water for batch mixing in commercial kitchens
- Kettle filling for breweries
- Beverage kegging
- Batch mixing for sealers, paints, and other products that are largely water
- Dispensing mixed product into retail containers
- Filling IBC totes
The controller is a self-contained compact unit that can be set on a desktop, mounted to a pipe or wall or in a lockable NEMA 4 cabinet, if protection from the elements or tampering is a concern. All wires connect to the unit with simple push-in connectors — no opening the enclosure or using screw terminals.
A weatherproof remote button is available which can be used as an emergency stop, or as the main start button for repetitive batches where the volume does not need to change.
