Compatible with Alicat’s latest Gas Select™ 6.0 firmware update
Tucson, Arizona (May 19, 2016) – Alicat Scientific has released updated LabVIEW instrument drivers for its line of standard mass flow meters, flow controllers, and pressure controllers running the company’s new Gas Select 6.0 Firmware.
Available for free download at http://www.alicat.com/support/software-drivers, the new device drivers enable users to easily develop control interfaces to Alicat instruments, without PLC programming skills. LabVIEW provides data collection from Alicat instruments, instrument control capabilities, and integration with other process instruments. Common functions include evaluating data in order to trigger events such as changes to set points or flow rates, gas selection, validation, and monitoring ongoing trend data.
With the industry’s highest turndown ratio, Alicat instruments precisely and rapidly control mass flow rate, volumetric flow rate and absolute pressure of gases. The new firmware and drivers are compatible with standard Alicat instruments—flow meters, flow controllers and pressure controllers—serial number 80,000 and higher.
