June 2, 2020 - AW-Lake introduced the EDGE Family of Flow Electronics that interface with positive displacement or turbine flow meters to provide control of processes –in some cases, from a smart phone. When installed on a flow meter, the EDGE Electronics can force the sensor to output a frequency or analog signal output for flexibility when interfacing with readout equipment or control rooms. Modbus output also adds system compatibility for operations.
A Bluetooth mobile application supports signal processing, allowing users to monitor and program flow meters from a smartphone that serves a hand-held display. Mobile and PC-based applications streamline installation, configuration, and troubleshooting. With basic scaling and functions, the application allows for remote correction of non-linear flow meters to keep a linear analog output.
The EDGE family of flow transmitters includes:
- EDGE FAC-R Frequency to Analog Converter: This DIN panel-mount converter changes a basic mechanical meter into a smart sensor. The EDGE Converter changes sensor frequency to current and voltage analog outputs for use in process monitoring, data acquisition and virtually any application needing to send an analog signal to a PLC. Modules are equipped with Bluetooth-enabled mobile application for wireless setup and programming from a smart phone or table.
- EDGE Flow Sensor: This local-mount sensor installs on flow meters to provide a frequency, current or analog signal for greater process flexibility. A Bluetooth mobile application enables flow meter monitoring and programming from the convenience of a smartphone. The mobile application also supports basic scaling and advanced functions, reacting when conditions go out-of-tolerance to help control processes.
- EDGE Battery-Powered Flow Rate Transmitter: Battery, loop or DC-powered, the transmitter provides a local six-digital LCD display of flor rate or total. Bluetooth connectivity enables operators to view readings and adjust rate, total, reset, sloop mode or time on a smart device. Bluetooth applications support scaling and advanced functions, such as remote correction of non-linear flow meters to keep a linear analog output.
