FCI's FLT93 Series FlexSwitch

July 6, 2015
New design complies with European Union RoHS directive.

The newly redesigned FLT93 Series FlexSwitch from Fluid Components International (FCI)  is compliant with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive and is a reliable solution in a wide range of fluids and industrial applications.

Redesigned with new high-density surface mount technology (SMT) electronics, the environmentally-friendly FLT93 Series FlexSwitch now meets all EU restrictions on lead solder and five other toxic materials found in some electronic devices.  RoHS hazardous materials restrictions are related to the EU’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, which sets recovery and recycling targets for electronic product waste to prevent ground and water pollution and exposure to people.

The new design of the FLT FlexSwitch features a state-of-the-art quick disconnect terminal block. The entire electronics assembly is firmly secured into an aluminum or stainless steel housing, which improves vibration immunity in rugged plant environments. SIL2 rated for ultra-reliability, the FLT93 switches are found in the world’s most demanding processes and plants. Ex agency approvals are provided for the entire instrument—FM, FMc, ATEX, IECEx, InMetro and EAC/TR CU.
