MCE–Series: SEMI Standard Gas Mass Flow Controllers

MCE-Series SEMI Standard Gas Mass Flow Controllers are equipped with 1/4″ VCR fittings and match end-to-end with SEMI standard MFCs, for easy drop-in upgrades to vacuum deposition fixtures. Control mass flow or pressure of 98+ gases.
  • Drop-in compatibility. Form factor includes welded 1/4″ VCR fittings and matches 124 mm end-to-end length of SEMI standard MFCs.
  • Versatile & accurate. Real-time control with NIST-traceable accuracy to ±0.5% of reading or ±0.1% of full scale for 98+ gases and 20 custom-defined mixtures.
  • Easy integration. Custom process ports and electrical connectors, and your choice of EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, DeviceNet, Profibus, Modbus (RTU and TCP/IP), or serial communications for easy integration into your industrial process.

Device Features
Included with each device
  • Multi-variable process measurements: Simultaneously measure mass flow, volumetric flow, gas pressure, and gas temperature.
  • User changeable units of measurement: Change the unit of measurement for pressure, flow, or temperature from our extensive list of engineering units.
  • Gas selectability: Select your process gas from any of the 98+ preloaded NIST-traceable gas calibrations in our gas list.
  • Gas Select COMPOSER™: Define 20 custom gas mixtures of up to 5 constituent gases using our Gas Select Composer firmware.
  • Monochrome backlit LCD with integrated touchpad: Easily read measurements using the backlit display and control configurations with the user-friendly integrated touchpad.
  • User adjustable setpoint ramping & limits: Configurable ramp rates allow the process variable to be controlled as fast or as slow as desired, and configurable setpoint limits protect processes from inadvertent setpoint changes.
  • User adjustable standard temperature and pressure (STP) conditions: Quickly change reference conditions without need for recalibration.
  • Valve close override and valve open override: Utilize alarms to quickly vent your system or stop all flow as needed.
