Arc: The Power to Connect
Arc tools can be used to rethink sensor management and eliminate the shortcomings of at-line transmitters. Computers and mobile devices equipped with ArcAir software can communicate wirelessly with up to 31 sensors and streamline configuration, calibration, and other common workflows.
Arc sensor technology offers a new way to think about how sensors are installed and managed by eliminating the transmitter. Click on the headers to the right below to learn more.
The transmitter is built into the sensor. Data stays with the sensor at all times.
Arc Wi Wireless Adapters
Optional Arc Wi adapters enable Bluetooth communication while maintaining hardwired control signals.
Hardwired Sensor Output
Arc sensors include a robust connection directly to the process control system.
Configure, calibrate, and troubleshoot Arc sensors though ArcAir software.
App Note - Arc DO in recombinant protein fermentationAlbumedix, a technology developer in albumin-based products in Nottingham, UK, has integrated the 4-20 mA signal VisiFerm DO provides into their existing controllers to achive reduced downtimes and higher efficiency.

How do I calibrate my Arc sensor?
How do I communicate with an Arc sensor?Arc sensors have a built-in micro-transmitter within the sensor. ArcAir software is a powerful tool to access data, configure and calibrate the sensor. This can be done with Bluetooth wireless communication or with a wired connection directly to a PC.
Which wireless adapter do I need for my sensor?Hamilton makes two Bluetooth wireless adapters - Wi 1G and Wi 2G. The Wi 1G is designed for VisiFerm sensors using the ECS (nA) signal. The Wi 2G is better choice with Arc sensors.
