Digital Pressure Sensors

When it comes to pressure sensors, there is a tremendous number of choices available in today’s marketplace. All the different measuring technologies and principles that are promoted by manufacturers can make choosing the correct one a seemingly impossible task.

In this blog, we will specifically be showcasing some of our digital pressure sensors with advanced communication protocols, including possibilities of utilising IO-Link, USB and I2C.

Gloucestershire Energy from Waste Facility Visit

Being eco-friendly means living in a way that is not harmful to the environment. This way of life is becoming increasingly important as we need to protect our planet from man-made damage. In the ever changing and ever-growing world we live in, we are all now more than ever trying to do our bit to sustain a healthier future. Gloucestershire County Council have teamed up with two well established businesses to try and do just that.

The Gloucestershire Energy from Waste (EfW) Facility is an environmentally sound solution for processing the county’s waste that cannot be recycled. The facility accepts up to 190,000 tonnes of residual waste each year from local homes and, the County’s household recycling centers and contracted third-party commercial waste. In turn, producing over 116,000 megawatt hours for the National Grid every year – enough energy to power 25,000 homes!

The facility boasts an on-site Visitor Centre providing educational tours, courses and workshops for community and educational groups to show how the county’s waste is being converted into energy and how the facility supports Gloucestershire’s recycling activities.

Lite Visual Room Pressure Monitor

Our Lite visual room pressure indicator provides a simple, cost-effective, and accurate way to measure, display and monitor room differential pressure for spaces that currently require manual verification. For local staff managing an area, the Lite has an intuitive light ring that is green or red and an optional audible alarm providing clear indication of room pressure conditions. For facilities using the unit means the frequency of preventative maintenance walk-by inspections can be reduced because the Lite is monitoring the space.

The Lite is about the size of a standard light switch and is just as a simple to install. It fits in a single-gang US electrical box, international 86-box or international round back-box and is powered by 24VAC or 24VDC. The reference side pressure pickup is integral with the Lite faceplate. An analogue output provides the building management system with the pressure signal for any additional trending or alarming needed.

Level Sensors

Our single point level sensors are ideal for reliable and accurate tank level detection. Our liquid level sensors are available in a vast range of sizes, mountings, materials and sensing technologies (from mechanical to no moving parts) which include float type sensors and switches, electro optic level switches, capacitive level sensors and switches and ultrasonic level sensors.

 

Level Measurement Technologies

Point level sensors are often used as a warning indicator to trigger an alert when a fluid level is either too high or too low within a tank or vessel. A single point level sensors detects if a predetermined single liquid level is reached and actuates a switch to notify a user.
