SMC has enlarged its range of speed controllers with the AS-FS series. The indication window and the larger rotary handle with push-lock mechanism offer safety, supervision and time savings. When controlling the flow is a must, AS-FS has a display window with numbers so the operator can check the flow from the values at any time, therefore deviations during operation can be quickly and easily detected. In addition to having a large field of view, readability is optimised by the two different orientation options for the tilted display window. Furthermore, speed controllers in the AS-FS series have a rotary handle with a push-lock mechanism for quick and easy adjustment without the need for extra tools. Together with its improved insertion and removal of the tube, and the high position of the one-touch fitting, this product is perfect if you just want to use your fingers. The new AS-FS series is available with gasket seal (M5 thread, 10-32 UNF, Uni), sealing compound (R or NPT) or face seal (G thread), and in a wide range of applicable tubing, from Ø2 to Ø16 metric sizes and from 1/8 to 1/2" inch sizes. Besides the available nickel-plated or stainless steel housing, it has a good appearance and high resistance to corrosion. All together this makes the AS-FS series elbow-type speed controllers ideal in industrial and general machining applications, where the drive speed must be set accurately. Recognised as a global technology leader and voted for the third consecutive year as one of the worlds most innovative by leading business magazine Forbes, SMC has a diverse customer base covering all automation industries.
