Battery Pack for Flow Meters and Pressure Gauges
Part Number: BPACK
Our battery pack for mass flow meters, liquid flow meters and pressure gauges attaches to the top of Alicat instruments equipped with our standard 0-5 Vdc analog signal and 8-pin mini-DIN communications options. (Note: Battery packs are not compatible with our industrial or D-sub connectors.) The battery pack features an on/off rocker switch and reproduces our standard female 8-pin mini-DIN connector via internal pass-through circuitry. Typical running time is 8 hours using a 9V alkaline battery with a monochrome unit, or 2.5 hours using a 9V lithium battery with a backlit color TFT unit.
Battery packs require an initial 5-minute installation of a replacement case top (included) to your flow meter or pressure gauge. Connection of the battery pack to the meter is via internal captive screws (Allen wrench provided). Meters and gauges cannot access power via their barrel-style power connections while this battery pack is connected.
Dimensions: 2.375″ x 1.063″ x 2.625″ (6.0 x 2.6 x 6.7 cm)

*Note: Product height of 2-5/8″ (6.7 cm) includes the length of the 8-pin mini-DIN prongs. When connected to a meter or gauge, the battery pack adds 2.5″ (6.3 cm) to the height of the instrument.
