Model 0254 four-channel power supply, readout and set-point controller
The Brooks 0254 is an innovative, reliable microcomputer-based controller that provides power for up to four Brooks mass flow meters and mass flow controllers, and/or pressure devices, all in a new compact design. Additionally, the 0254 can generate flow set-point commands, display flow rate, totalize flow, batch, blend multiple flow streams and more. This fully RoHS-compliant device has a very user-friendly operation and is offered with multiple mounting options such as rack mount, panel mount and table-top mount.
Brooks Smart Interface Model 0260 controls and monitors up to 30 devices
The Brooks Smart Interface Model 0260 is a Microsoft Windows®-based software application that provides expanded control and monitoring capabilities in laboratory and research environments for Brooks thermal mass flow meters and mass flow controllers with an RS485 Smart protocol digital interface. Together with the power supply and RS485 to USB hardware module, this product is a great solution for monitoring and controlling up to 30 mass flow meters/controllers.
Brooks Service Suite
Brooks Instrument provides a variety of software and accessory options to simplify installations and start-up. Brooks software tools ensure mass flow controllers perform at their best. Calibration and control software, available for some models, allow customers to perform calibration checks to verify accuracy and repeatability.
Brooks Service Suite, Standard: Provides access to I/O tuning, alarm indication/configuration, diagnostics, selected response tuning, control and monitor.
Brooks Service Suite, Pro: Provides access to I/O tuning, alarm indication/configuration, diagnostics, selected response tuning, control and monitor, plus calibration and accuracy reporting capabilities.
0254 Gas and Liquid Mass Flow Secondary Electronics, 4 channels
Four Channel Display
The process variable and setpoint for each of the four channels are displayed simultaneously for quick reading and adjustment. The value displayed on each channel can be independently set for percent full scale or engineering units to display flow rate, pressure, density, or temperature.
Backlit Graphic Display The 0254 features a large, high contrast, backlit graphic display which allows the user to view real-time process variables and the programmed setpoint for each connected device right on the home screen. This enables the user to rapidly identify and make in-process adjustments in seconds. The display and audio indicators provide the user immediate status quantities, rates, and diagnostic operating status.
Every 0254 comes with a RS-232 port, giving users serial communication capability. The RS-232 port provides remote readout, setpoint, control, and data acquisition. Diagnostics Powerful automatic built-in diagnostic tests support easy installation and assist in ensuring a long, trouble-free operating life. These tests include overall system operating status, memory conditions, communication adapter status, display functionality, and keypad operation.
A gas sensor factor dropdown list is a standard menu feature, allowing the user to adapt the 0254 to any non-calibrated fluid.
Approvals and Certifications
The 0254 is fully RoHS compliant to EU 2002/95, CE certified to EN61326-1, FCC certified to Part 15 Class A and Part 68. UL general purpose approval to UL61010 is pending.
