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.
