Fluid sensor combines flow and temperature
December 2016, Sensors & Transducers
Wenglor’s weFlux² compact fluid sensors combine electronics and analysis functions in a single unit. A patented measuring method determines the flow velocities as well as the temperatures of liquid media, regardless of position and direction of flow. By uniting two measuring functions in a single sensor, the number of measuring points in closed systems is reduced, minimising installation, service and inventory costs.
Operating on the calorimetric principle, thermal differences are measured in flowing media and are converted to physical quantities such as flow velocity and temperature. In addition, installation in any desired position assures greater flexibility for system layout.
The maintenance-free sensors offer pressure resistance up to 100 bar. In order to deliver precise measurement in hygienically sensitive environments at temperatures ranging from -25 to +80°C, the FDA-compliant housing made of 316L stainless steel is not equipped with a display.
The sensors can be conveniently configured via the integrated IO-Link interface without any software tools. The analysis of measurement and diagnostic data ensures high levels of system availability, in addition to which the sensor’s switching points can be adjusted individually in diagrams. Existing data records can be transferred automatically to new products.
weFlux² can be used in a diversity of industrial sectors wherever liquids are monitored, regulated and controlled in closed piping systems. For example, the devices can be used to monitor coolant water at welding robots in the automotive industry, or to monitor clean rinsing water in textile machines, integrated into blast furnaces with extreme temperatures or in bottle cleaning processes in the beverage industry.
