    Product Description

    Multi-Purpose Panel Tachometer

    Set-up data is easily entered via front panel keys and is not lost during power failures
    Accepts various modules; works with a variety of sensors

    The AW-Lake FAC-1 Frequency to Analog Converter is used to convert frequency inputs from speed sensors into a linear analog signal. The output signal can be set for the typical test and control ranges of 0 – 20 mA, 4 – 20 mA or 0 – 10 V. All configuration is performed via supplied software or can be pre-configured by factory upon order.

    Optimized for control and monitoring applications in drive, system and process engineering, the FAC-1 converter can convert a wide variety of signals from rotational speed sensors, rotary pulse encoders or proximity switches. It can process NPN, PNP, push-pull or TTL outputs, as well as sine wave signals from tacho generators and passive sensors. The normalized signal provided by the FAC-1 converter means it can be easily connected to PC or SPS controllers, recorders or indicators.
