Hydraulic pressure measurement during material handling

Steel plants’ outdoor warehouse facilities often use mobile cranes to efficiently manage of finished product. Outdoor mobile cranes’ gears require hydraulic fluid to ensure that the moving hinges are properly protected, lubricated and functioning. However, this necessary hydraulic fluid requires constant pressure monitoring. This task is best done with a PBS Plus pressure switch, which monitors pressures up to 1000 bar.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Switchable switching outputs (PNP/NPN) and analog output (current/voltage)
    • Scalable analog output (5:1 turn down)
    • High measurement accuracy: ± 0.5%
    • IO-Link for transmitting process data to the control as measured values in bar
    • Housing can be twisted in two places (process connection/display) and display can be rotated by 180°
    • Common process connections, also with flush-mounted membrane
