High Performance FCO750 Production Line Leak Detector - By Furness Controls, UK

Supplier: Bestech Australia

Furness Controls, UK, is now producing the FCO750 production line high specification leak detector. It is available through Bestech Australia.


It is an advanced multi-function pressure decay leak detector that is suited to applications requiring multiple test configurations or flexible control of associated tooling. Suitable for bench-top mounting or integration into automated assembly fixtures, the FCO750 offers an affordable, "no compromise" approach to leak detection.

This model is suitable for both simple and complex test sequences, with dual and automatic pressure regulation options. The tests can be any combination of leak tests, blockage tests, ramp tests or dump tests. Leak sensitivity is down to 0.1 Pa or 0.01ml/min.

This leak detector’s flexibility has been improved with the development of programmable inputs and outputs, maintenance early warning systems (MEWS) with email alert 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 great platform for cost effective test station requirements.

For enhanced communications, this leak detector is equipped with an Ethernet adapter, as well as a front panel mounted USB connector along with the standard RS232 and RS485 communications.

The high resolution display of the FCO750 leak detector allows different display types to be viewed, ranging from text only to graphical representations of test cycles, 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 leak detector 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. Also included is the facility to read both 2D and 3D barcodes directly into the FCO750. This means no PCs, PLCs or additional hardware are needed, as was previously the case.

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 when checking for leak detection. This impressive feature has been improved still further with the inclusion of serial number scanning, both improving and simplifying product traceability.
