In industrial processes where liquids, air or gases are used, process sensors serve to measure and detect pressure, temperature, flow and levels.
Pressure sensors are used to detect the system pressure of oil in hydraulic systems or to measure the hydrostatic pressure in tanks and vessels in the food and beverage industry.
Flow sensors monitor the coolant and lubricant supply of machines, power units and industrial furnaces or ensure ventilation of installations and buildings. Electronic level sensors monitor filling levels of liquids or bulk materials in containers, tanks and silos.
In the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, temperature sensors are used to ensure that products are at the correct temperature. In machine tool and automotive applications, the temperature or temperature difference measured at drives, gears and motors plays an important role as an indicator of the machine condition. In the steel, metal and glass industries, temperature monitoring of cooling circuits serves to prevent overheating of plants.
Valves are used for dosing and control of liquids, air or gases. Dual inductive sensors provide reliable position feedback for pneumatic valve actuators and valves. Valve sensors provide position feedback on linear valves.
