AS-FS Flow Sensor Dual Output

Stainless steel sensor with three sensor heads
FCI’s AS-FS Dual Output flow sensor provides fully redundant and separate outputs in the same outline dimension envelope of single sensor output designs. This is achieved by employing two electrically independent sensor heads and circuit boards; the second output assures continued operation in spite of a failure of one of the two redundant channels, thereby reducing the probability of an erroneous low flow or dry signal caused by a single sensor failure.
