Flow, temperature sensors
With their FlexFlow family of flow and temperature sensors, Baumer has expanded their process sensor portfolio. Based on the calorimetric measurement principle, the FlexFlow family can monitor flow velocity and media temperature. The sensors have IO-Link and, depending on settings and connections, either two switching outputs or one switching and one analog output (4...20 mA/ 0...10 V). The PF20H and PF20S versions are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications.
The combination of two measuring functions in one sensor reduces the number of measuring points in closed systems and minimizes costs of installation, service, and storage. With a symmetrical, centered design, the sensors can be optimally installed in the process independent of their installation position and orientation. This guarantees precise measurements and process safety.
Several sensors can be simultaneously configured via IO-Link, simplifying switching point adjustment for different process stages during setup or batch changeover and saves time. Diagnostic data polling and evaluation is always possible, increasing system uptime.
FlexFlow sensors have a robust stainless-steel housing with integrated electronics and evaluation unit. Complex wiring and control cabinet assembly and additional user interfaces are not required. This simplifies operation and allows efficient process management.
All models are temperature resistant to 150°C, making them CIP and SIP-capable.
