BPACK 9-Volt Battery Pack Kit
Convert your flow meter or pressure transducer into a portable device
Take your wired Alicat flow meter or pressure transducer anywhere by converting it into a battery-powered instrument. Our 9-volt battery pack for gas mass flow meters, liquid flow meters and pressure transducers attaches to the top of Alicat instruments equipped with our standard 8-pin mini-DIN connector. (Note: 9-volt battery packs are not compatible with our industrial or D-sub connectors.)
- Includes on/off rocker switch and 8-pin mini-DIN connector
- Power and communications from your controller pass through the battery pack to your computer or PLC.
- Compatible with Alicat gas flow, liquid flow or pressure meters equipped with our standard 8-pin mini-DIN connector.
Battery pack installation requires an initial 5-minute installation of a replacement case top (included) to your flow meter or pressure transducer. Connection of the battery pack to your instrument is via internal captive screws accessible with the provided Allen wrench.
Power and Communications
The battery pack features an on/off rocker switch and reproduces our standard female 8-pin mini-DIN connector via internal pass-through circuitry. However, converted instruments lose access to their barrel-type power jacks while this battery pack is connected. Typical running time is 8 hours using a 9-volt alkaline battery with a monochrome display, or 2.5 hours using a 9-volt lithium battery with a color display.
Dimensions: 2.375″ x 1.063″ x 2.625″ (6.0 x 2.6 x 6.7 cm)
*Note: Product height of 2.625″ (6.7 cm) includes the 0.125″ (0.4 cm) length of the 8-pin mini-DIN prongs at the bottom of the battery pack. When connected to an instrument, the battery pack adds 2.5″ (6.3 cm) to the height of the device. See the operating bulletin for details.
