Webtec launches run-time meter for attachments

By Belinda Smart11 February 2021

Webtec has a developed a run-time meter for hydraulic attachments that will allow companies to rent attachments on a time-used basis rather than on machine hours.

The RFS200 flow counter can be used by the rental market to record the operating time of hydraulic attachments.

UK-based Webtec - which manufactures hydraulic components and testing and calibration products - said the RFS200 flow counter is designed for more intuitive, cost-effective management of hydraulic systems.

The meter is activated by the passage of hydraulic fluid and is unaffected by pressure, helping to ensure accurate and reliable readings. Flow metering is enabled by the movement of a piston (against a spring) through a sharp-edged orifice, with position sensed magnetically.

The trigger point has been set during manufacture at 10 litres per minute with an anti-tamper design for security. When the switch point is reached, the counter starts. The meter keeps counting whenever the flow rate remains above the trigger point. All counting is cumulative.

Increments are indicated by a blinking decimal point on the LCD display.

The meter also features Webtec’s first-ever 3D-printed production part, the flow counter battery holder. Webtec says 3D printing has dramatically shortened manufacturing lead times for the device.
