Stand-alone/modular dynamic gas mixing platform with integrated 6 button TFT color interface, removable Bluetooth tablet, powered docking station, and pre-loaded Fusion Flow MXM software.
Highly flexible and expandable system with up to 10 gas inputs using any combination of mass flow controllers ranging from 100 SCCM to 5000 SLPM full-scale, per channel.
This stand-alone variant of the MXM-TAB turn-key model includes the essential hardware for gas mixing, but must be plumbed by the end user to suit their particular installation.
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 Surface Pro tablet 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. Wireless connectivity allows remote access to the MXM-SA-TAB MixModule brain unit, making it ideal for active research laboratories or installations requiring physical separation from the gas mixing hardware.
All Fusion Flow MXM systems are custom engineered to achieve the best possible gas blending result.

Wireless connectivity allows remote access to the gas mixing hardware.
Because the MXM-SA-TAB 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-TAB gas mixer.
Fusion Flow’s stand-alone solutions employ a 10 port gas mixing multiplexer board called the GMB. Every MXM-SA-TAB system comes with this interface board fully populated with all 10 MFC ports, to allow for future expansion. The GMB board also provides connection to the MixModule, a fused power supply accessory terminal, various automation connections, and the RS232 COM port connection for computer/software use. The MXM-SA-TAB’s included articulating tablet docking station adds secondary monitor outputs, USB ports, gigabit Ethernet, and tablet power.
The MXM-SA-TAB is a semi-DIY dynamic gas mixing system with a high performance Windows based tablet, 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 pre-installed MXM software or the backup TFT keypad. The MXM-SA-TAB is an ideal choice for complex applications that require frequent changing of the gas mix ratios, wireless connectivity, more than 6 gas constituents, or processes that require very high flow rates.
