Portable 4-Channel Sampling Flow and Pressure Meter

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

DataTron Flow TesterFRC is very pleased to announce our new DataTron FTC200 4-channel, portable sampling Flow and Pressure Meter for GPM/LPM (Flow) and kPa/PSI (Pressure) display. This is the latest state-of-the-art technology available to simultaneously gather data for up to 4 flow tube channels, and uses our well-known, reliable paddle wheel type flow and pressure sensors. The Summing feature calculates the sum of all 4 flow channels at the touch of a button!

The data recording process is straight-forward and user-friendly. Set the time interval and number of counts in Automatic Mode, or take a quick “snap-shot” in Manual Mode. The data is recorded and saved as a CSV file, which is viewable as a spreadsheet on your computer. Data is retrieved in a snap – plug in a standard USB memory stick to the DataTron, or hook up a USB cable between the DataTron and your computer.
