New Flow sensors E8FC and Pressure sensors E8PC from Omron bring a new generation of innovative solutions for controlling industrial processes that use different fluids and gases. Based on a unique technology, these new sensors perform double monitoring of the main parameters of flow or pressure.
In addition, they provide temperature control and can give advanced warning of process abnormalities with bright coloured visual signals and easy-to-read parameters on a high visibility black and white organic indicator.
The sensors can transfer information about the monitored system status over a high-speed IO-Link communication standard COM3, as well as identifying data and parameters for self-diagnostics.
The E8FC/E8PC flow- and pressure control sensors further sensors our ‘Vertical Integration Concept’ which allows the transfer of processing data from the lowest level of the automation pyramid up to the top and settings parameters from the top to be transferred down to each sensor.
The new E8FC sensors can be used in the automotive industry to prevent sudden stops and defects in molding and welding machines due to cooling liquid abnormalities. And, due to the precise monitoring of hydraulic pressure, the new E8PC can be applied to prevent press and processing defects in different types of pressing machines or in CNC and other advanced machining centres.
Beyond the automotive industry, other industries can benefit from this technology. These include industries where a single processing mistake or abnormality could cause huge damage to the whole production process or to the final product. The new E8FC/E8PC can be used as an effective solution to predict and indicate these types of issues in advance.
