Stand-alone/modular dynamic gas mixing platform with integrated 6 button TFT color interface, separate industrial touch-panel PC in open-air kickstand, and pre-loaded Fusion Flow MXM software.
Able to manage 2 to 10 gas inputs with any combination of mass flow controllers ranging from 100 SCCM to 5000 SLPM full-scale, per channel.
This open architecture variant of the MXM-PC enclosed model includes all the essential measurement and control hardware for gas mixing, but requires the individual MFCs to be plumbed by the end user.
Custom engineered for every application, the MXM family of gas mixers are the only hardware-based blenders of their kind to offer both flow and pressure delivery modes. Accurate and dynamic gas mixing is accomplished via specially tuned Alicat Scientific mass flow controllers commanded by our proprietary MixModule device. The included Microsoft® Windows 10® based, 12.1” resistive touch panel PC with pre-loaded Fusion Flow MXM software gives the user full control over the gas mixing process, including preset recipes, automation steps, and robust data logging. Powered by 8th generation Intel Core™ i/Celeron processors and supported by an expansive I/O panel, the MXM-SA-PC is well suited to light industrial use or installations needing a highly integrated, robust and fully featured human-machine interface.
All Fusion Flow MXM systems are custom engineered to achieve the best possible gas blending result.

The MXM-SA-PC model allows for the most integration and configuration options possible, while employing the robust and familiar Windows OS environment.
Because the MXM-SA-PC is intended to be plumbed by the end-user, the form factor of the system is dictated by the chosen MFCs as they are laid out/mounted by the customer. This allows for highly custom integration, where a turn-key package may not be suitable. Although the physical plumbing connections are not included with the system, all electrical, power supply, and communication cables are provided with each MXM-SA-PC gas mixer.
The MXM-SA-PC is a semi-DIY dynamic gas mixing system with a fully featured Windows PC with an industrial grade resistive touch screen, and backup 6 button TFT color interface (located on the MixModule device). The entire gas mixing process can be configured, started, and stopped using either the MXM software or the backup TFT keypad. The MXM-SA-PC is an ideal choice for complex applications that require frequent changing of the gas mix ratios, more than 6 gas constituents, or processes that require very high flow rates.
Fusion Flow’s stand-alone solutions employ a 10 port, rear-mounted gas mixing multiplexer board called the GMB. Every MXM-SA system comes with this interface board fully populated, to allow inter-connection of the MixModule and subordinate MFCs, fused power supply terminal, PC Panel power terminal, various automation connections, and the RS232 COM port connection for computer/software use.
