Model 990X

The Florite Model 990X is a high quality microcomputer-based controller suitable for any commercial or industrial application. Configurable channels enable a mix of up to eight inputs and/or outputs regardless of signal type. Unlike standard fixed instrument platforms, any standard sensor signal can be quickly connected directly to the Model 990X allowing the user to select from a vast number of sensor and control products.

Installation and Operation – Set-up and operation is performed via keypad or by using the standard RS-232 serial communication port provided with every Model 990X. The user simply configures the various programmable values needed to achieve the required application performance. Florite’s Model 990X does the rest.
