BB9 Communications

The BB9 Communications Box with USB connector provides a way to connect multiple Apex Mass Flow Controllers, Apex Mass Flow Meters and Apex Pressure Controllers. Each Apex unit is plugged into the BB9 hub with a double ended cable (DC-62 or DC-252). Power can be supplied by using a PVPS24U Power Adapter and plugging that into a standard wall outlet. Power from that unit will move through the BB9 to power other units. Connecting a computer with our FlowVision software installed, can connect to the BB9 and can "talk" to each Apex unit through an addressable RS-232 command. So one computer can control and record output for multiple Apex units.

Flow Software

Flow software is available to run all Apex Products. You can set the set points and graph and store flow data. Mixing software also available for mixing gases from multiple Apex units.
