|New viscosity sensor from SenGenuity - Vectron International||February 4, 2013|
Vectron International announces the expansion of its SenGenuity line of fluid sensing solutions with the release of the ViSmart® VS-25xx Series Viscosity Sensor for measurement and control of aqueous and solvent based inks.
The ATEX certified ViSmart® VS-2511 Viscosity Sensor measures fluid viscosity in–situ and in real time. When used in conjunction with the ATEX certified VB–2510 Shunt Diode Barrier and the VisConnect® converter modules, the sensor system provides continuous viscosity and temperature measurements in a variety of output interfaces including CANopen, RS–232, 4–20mA, and 0–4V.
The world’s smallest viscosity sensor, the ViSmart® VS-25xx sensors are solid state with no moving parts and are based on Vectron’s Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) technology. The surface of the sensors are treated with diamond like carbon making them scratch and chemical resistant, and allowing for use with both aqueous and solvent based inks.
The ViSmart® VS-2511 viscosity sensor’s compact design and flexible interface enables easy integration into the printing press, while the solid-state no moving parts construction ensures robust, reliable performance.
The ViSmart® VS-25xx Viscosity Sensors are offered with the following ordering options; ½” NPT, BSPT, or BSPP male threaded fitting with M12X1, 8 pin male connector for detachable cable; hazardous or non-hazardous certified; and either standard or customizable OEM part numbers.
