Flo-Corp is a flow, level, and cloud-based monitoring solutions provider. Starting in 1989 as a distribution company, it quickly grew to manufacture its own product lines after seeing how frequently its customers needed more than just off-the-shelf solutions. In 2016, Flo-Corp designed and released the Connex 3D Cloud-based cellular monitor, the industry’s first process cellular monitor that communicates to field and host devices via RS485, then transmits wirelessly through cellular data transmission to a cloud-based server.
