Qdos chemical metering pumps from the Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) now feature four configurable outputs to help users cut down on the need for additional PLCs and provide extra flexibility when communicating with SCADA or other external monitoring systems.
WMFTG has expanded its Qdos Universal + relay series to provide four configurable outputs as well as the 4-20mA. As a result, users can access increased options for connectivity, enabling improved communication regarding pump performance and function status.
All Qdos Universal + Relay pumps produced by WMFTG from March 2020 will feature four changeover relay outputs, with either 110VAC 4A or 24VDC 4A contact rating. These configurable outputs will sit alongside the current 4-20mA, providing a total of five outputs.
The upgrade has been facilitated by the addition of a newly designed relay PCB for the Universal + Relay (R) model. To allow quick set-up of the four outputs, the software has been modified for more intuitive configuration.
