Webtec RFS200 designed so that specialist hydraulic attachments can be rented on a ‘time-used’ basis.
Webtec has a developed the RFS200, a run-time meter designed so that specialist hydraulic attachments can be rented on a ‘time-used’ basis, rather than machine hours. The Webtec run-time meter is activated by the passage of hydraulic fluid and is unaffected by pressure. On the RFS200, the switch point is fixed at 10 litres per min. When the switch point is reached, the counter starts incrementing and keeps counting whenever the flow rate remains above the trigger point. All counting is cumulative. The run-time meter offers flow rates up to 200 lpm and maximum pressure of 420 bar. It is also bi-directional and will allow oil to pass in reverse, but the counter will not be triggered. Suitable for use with hydraulic mineral oil to ISO 11158 category HM, fluid temperatures can be accommodated between -40°C and 100°C. Timer accuracy is ±0.2% over the specified temperature range.
