BASIS™ OEM mass flow controllers now control to 20 SLPM
May 3, 2016
Compact, versatile, and accurate BASIS mass flow controllers are ideal for original equipment manufacturing and large volume process integration applications. Now the product line includes ranges from 100 SCCM up to 20 SLPM, each with digital communications options.
With the expanded range the new model provides, BASIS can now fit into more applications, such as sample dilution, sparging into liquids, and additional gas mixing systems.
The BASIS mass flow controller family was specifically designed to provide a fast, accurate, and economical package to OEM and process integration engineers. With its rapid control response speed of 100 ms, BASIS will react in real time to upstream fluctuations, producing a smoothly controlled flow downstream. BASIS controllers have NIST-traceable accuracy of ±(1.5% of reading + 0.5% of full scale) and repeatability of ±0.5% of reading.
The controllers offer a good flexibility of fluid type, with built-in calibrations for Air, Ar, CO2, N2, O2, and N2O. He and H2 are available as single-gas units. This flexibility means integrators can use BASIS in a broad range of end-user products, selecting gas type through RS-485, RS-232, Modbus Serial, and 0-5 Vdc analog. PLC and PC control are therefore also available, and the instrument provides either digital or analog feedback.
