BECSys3

Category: Automated Controllers

BECSys3 water chemistry controls provide continuous monitoring and control of sanitizers and pH in a simple-to-use configuration. A large-character, backlit 2 line by 20 character LCD displays current status and alarms in a high-visibility, easy-to-read format.

 The controller has an optional free chlorine sensor, which can be selected for sanitizer feed control rather than ORP. If using ORP, a derived chlorine ppm reading is also available, with a 0.2 to 16.0 scale. The BECSys3 can also be configured without a PPM scale, displaying the ORP and pH readings only. Operational settings are password-protected for system security.

 An integral 100 BaseT Ethernet with data logging can be added to the BECSys3 for data-logging, remote access, and email and text message alarm notifications. Up to 31 BECSys3s without communications at the same site can share these communications and data logging features through a standard RS485 interface, reducing cost to the owner.

 BECSys3s without the integral communications capability can add the optional BECSysRCM Remote Communications Module for data-logging, remote access, and email and text message alarm notifications.

 Every controller comes complete with either pH and ORP sensors or pH, free chlorine and temperature sensors, flow switch, machined flow cell, and start-up and support provided by factory-trained technicians.

 The BECSys3 flow cell can be pre-assembled at the factory and mounted with the controller on a back panel for convenient installation. In this configuration a lightweight PVC mounting frame is easily leveled and installed on the wall. The back panel assembly is then hung on the mounting frame through 4 teardrop holes. Tighten the four bolts, make plumbing and electrical connections and installation is complete.
