Compressed air consumption measurement in production
The FTMg thermal flow sensor measures the flow and temperature as well as the process pressure in the compressed air system. The areas of application are the central compressed air production area, the supply network as well as the connected machines. Internal data logging over seven days and integrated static evaluation help detect leaks in the compressed air system. All measurement data can be transmitted via IO-Link or with switching and analog signals. Power over Ethernet (communication with OPC UA) also enables simple web-based connection to a computer or a cloud to make energy consumption more transparent.
Following product families can be used
- Measures compressed air and non-corrosive gases such as argon, helium, carbon dioxide and nitrogen
- Visualization of compressed air consumption via the FTMg monitoring app from SICK
- Measurement of gas flow and temperature as well as process pressure and energy consumption with only one sensor
- Low pressure loss
- High measurement dynamics for cylinder and leakage monitoring
