The FCO750 is a high specification leak detector from Furness Controls and builds on the highly successful FCO290. Suitable for bench-top mounting or integration into automated assembly fixtures, the FCO750 offers an affordable, "No Compromise" approach to leak detection.
The high resolution display allows different display types to be viewed, ranging from text only to graphical representations of test cycle, trace history or instrument status. Display types can be changed and menus accessed without the need to stop the instrument's test cycle, offering true multi-tasking performance.
The FCO750's flexibility has been improved still further with the development of programmable inputs and outputs, maintenance early warning systems (MEWS) and the inclusion of programmable pneumatic outputs. Programmable I/O can negate the requirement for PLC controls, reducing test station costs and complexity. With various logic functions and timers, the FCO750 offers a perfect platform for cost effective test station requirements.
For enhanced communications, the FCO750 is equipped with an Ethernet adapter allowing the instrument to be accessed over a local area network. This can be used for uploading and downloading results, monitoring instrument performance or modifying test data using our FBus software. A front panel mounted USB connector is included for local access to the instrument via a PC along with RS232 and RS485 communications also fitted as standard.
As standard, the FCO750 has the capacity to store over 10,000 historic test results and offers a flexible and convenient way to carry out data collection for SPC type analysis. Data can be collected via the instruments RS232, RS485, USB or LAN port in either real time or at scheduled intervals. For applications where more storage capacity is required, an enhanced data logger option is available.
Barcode product selection has until now, required PC's, PLC's or additional hardware to utilise this effective feature. As a result, its use has been restricted to predominantly large scale automated assembly fixtures. Following requests by our customers and World Wide Agents, Furness Controls have included the facility to read both 1D and 2D barcodes directly into the FCO750. Using the Barcode feature, specific product test parameters can be quickly and easily selected simply by scanning the code directly from a product or via a pick list. Product selection is straightforward and simple with the chance of operator error being significantly reduced. This impressive feature has been improved still further with the inclusion of serial number scanning. Leak test results can now be stored against a products unique serial number within the FCO750, both improving and simplifying product traceability.
