Original Press Release:

AW-Lake Introduces the EDGE Flow Sensor with Bluetooth that Provides an Analog, Pulse or Modbus Interface for Flow Meters

Oak Creek, Wisconsin – March 23, 2020 - AW-Lake Company introduces the new EDGE Flow Sensor with optional Bluetooth for use in flow meter applications requiring an analog, pulse or Modbus signal to a PLC or other control system. Easily mounted on meters including AW-Lake Gear Meters and Turbine Flow Meters, the EDGE Flow Sensor outputs a frequency, current or analog signal that gives users more installation flexibility, especially when unsure of readout equipment or a control room interface.

With the ability to force the sensor to output a frequency or analog signal, connections to a user interface are verifiable without the need to run fluid flow. The sensor offers three optional pulse output configurations including push/pull, sinking, and sourcing. A Modbus output adds additional system compatibility for more advanced operations.

A Bluetooth mobile application gives users the ability to monitor and program flow meters from the convenience of a smartphone without having to be directly in front of the unit. Operators can remotely configure, set parameters, fine-tune adjustments and troubleshoot the sensor remotely using a mobile device. The mobile application also supports basic scaling and advanced functions, allowing for remote correction of non-linear flow meters to keep a linear analog output. Using the mobile application, users can turn a smartphone or tablet into a wireless flow monitor that works in the palm of their hands!

Designed with a significantly reduced package size, the EDGE Flow Sensor fits in small spaces and can connect to a PC via standard USB-C cable. More resistant to system vibration than competitive units, the sensor has no contact between the pickup nose and meter to minimize the chance of its damage due to rough handling or installation.
