microFLEX M2T Controller


Single Cooling Tower/Closed Loop Controller

The ProMinent® microFLEX is a cooling tower/closed loop controller that combines the latest technology with an economical solution.  Our breakthough design offers a worry-free thermal flow switch that does not require any user adjustments or calibration.

Standard Features

  • Tower conductivity and temperature input
  • Flow switch status input
  • 5 Key universal keypad
  • 2 Line, 16 character backlit display
  • Single water meter input

Benefits

  • Selectable Inhibitor Feed: Provides 4 feed modes; bleed and feed, bleed then feed, proportional to makeup water volume and percentage time.
  • Water Meter Input: Allows for chemical to be fed based on water volume versus timed pump control methods generally found on comparably priced controllers.
  • Single Point Calibration: For ease of start up and operation. Warning message immediately detects fouled or faulty sensors.
  • What and Why Information: On the controller display is a valuable troubleshooting tool. Solenoid and chemical pump relays show complete status. Shows WHY the relay is on/off.
  • Controller Run Time: Gives total hours per day and total operating days since initial installation.
  • Robust Diagnostics: Provide complete 24-hour history of bleed valve operation, relay run times and minimum/maximum temperatures.
  • Keypad Password: Eliminates unauthorized adjustments.
  • Communication Options: Include Ethernet networking, dry contact alarm relay or 4-20mA output on conductivity.
  • Optional Web Browser User Interface with Networking Capabilities: Provides ability to direct connect to the controller from a portable workstation, such as a laptop computer. Can also view critical processes remotely through the use of a LAN.
