Conductivity sensor for interface detection

October 2020 Sensors & Transducers

The differentiation between media plays an important role, especially in the food industry. Cleaning agents, rinsing water and food products located in process pipes have different conductivity values and can therefore be easily and reliably detected. The LDL 100 conductivity sensor from ifm electroninc makes product validation possible at all times, meaning quick and reliable differentiation between the cleaning media, which leads to a reduction in wasted product and rinsing water. Enhanced functions are also available, such as simulation.

The ability to differentiate between products is now available in an out-of-the-box solution.

During installation it is not necessary to make adjustments to the sensor. Advantages of the LDL 100 at a glance:

• Reduce inaccuracies associated with a time-based cleaning process.

• Improve process performance with flexible measurement points.

• Compact, high-quality sensor design prevents failures and unplanned downtime.

• Simplify your installation and commissioning processes.

• Loss-free signal transmission of measurement values.

Other features include short commissioning time, simple wiring and a compact design. The fully welded stainless steel housing prevents water ingress.
