This company is easy to deal with. I think the price in Australian $$ has gone up a bit since early pandemic but the full kit arrived (Profitec for me) as expected with shipping delays.

EDIT: - I see my link dod not come through when I posted.

This site located in Calgary, Alberta sells the flow control device. They have black or white gauge face color.
It seems to be out of stock as I write that.
I ordered mine from them for my Synchronika and used the longer handle.

What results are people getting with the ECM flow control device; and any hints and tips?

Biggest bit of advice from me is, find stock flow position, for me it is 1.25 of a turn from closed. I dial my beans using stock flow, once my grind is dialed in then I start to play. Until you get real comfortable with it I would definitely start every new bean this way. If you don't know how to find the stock position, search YouTube for WLL flow control videos.
