Dwyer GFM3 Series Gas Mass Flow Meter and Controllers

Dwyer GFM3 Series Gas Mass Flow Meter and Controllers

Dwyer GFM3 Series Gas Mass Flow Meter and Controllers is an ideal choice for the measurement of flow rates of a wide variety of gases. This digital flow meter features a 12-digit totalizer for total gas volume indication, and is available in the choice of 0 to 5 VDC, 0 to 10 VDC, or 4 to 20 mA output signals.

Standard LCD and four-button keypad allow easy access to the many features of the GFM3. The digital interface operates through available RS-485 or RS-232, providing access to internal data parameters and multi-drop capability of up to 255 units (RS-485 only).

Set alarms remotely via the digital interface for flow to alert users of high or low thresholds being exceeded. With a high ±1% FS accuracy and ±0.25% FS repeatability, the GFM3 is the optimal choice in gas flow metering and monitoring.

The GFM3 comes with a NIST traceable certificate. Flow Monitoring, Push-Button Configuration. The unit can be calibrated for a variety of gases via push-button with 0-5 VDC, 0-10 VDC or 4-20 mA and relay outputs.
