Smartlink® Tracer®VM  Interface

TracerVM Bluetooth Interface

The Smartlink TracerVM Interface collects, transmits and saves data from TracerVM Base flowmeters installed in injection mold cooling circuits.

The Smartlink TracerVM Interface provides power to each connected TracerVM flowmeter and receives voltage signals for temperature and flow.

The Smartlink TracerVM Interface communicates over Ethernet connection to PC software for network file storage and alerts. Configuration Files save alarm settings and session setups to save time and maintain data consistency.

When used with PC software, a dry contact switch is available for connection to a peripheral or machine control to signal an alarm for out of limit cooling water conditions. Alerts are disabled when recording is not active.

Data files (*.csv format) are easily read into database software for reference or analysis. Scientific Molders can use this data to confirm processing parameters and optimize cycle times and cooling water efficiency.

Network Connection Requirement
When used with PC Software, Smartlink TracerVM Interface must be connected through a DHCP Client such as a wireless router or Local Area Network that will automatically assign an IP address. The interface will not communicate if plugged directly into a computer.


The Smartlink  TracerVM Interface wirelessly transmits flow rate and temperature to display on a mobile device. Flow condition data log files can be created via app and saved on USB flash drive documenting the mold cooling water conditions.
