MEASURING PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE WITH A SINGLE SENSOR

30-05-2019

Wenglor’s engineers have integrated a temperature element into a pressure-measuring cell, which makes it possible for the company’s weFlux² pressure sensors to simultaneously measure the relative pressure and temperature of gases and liquids. Combining these two measuring functions enhances efficiency and saves money because fewer sensors are required for process monitoring. At the same time, reducing the number of sensors is in line with the trend towards more compact systems and machines.

All of the sensors in the weFlux² series are equipped with IO-Link version 1.1, and can be used to acquire all relevant process values such as pressure, flow and temperature. In combination with Wenglor’s wTeach2 software, a digital platform is created for smart machines by means of which the fluid sensors configure themselves automatically, and with which the acquired data can be evaluated and visualised in real time. Thanks to intelligent process monitoring, machines are utilised to their fullest extent and systems are proactively protected against damage.
