Omron Electronics is pleased to offer customers the K7L-UP-FLK liquid leakage position sensor, a unit that offers leakage detection even in unseen places.
Able to monitor at distances of up to 600m with a single controller, the K7L-UP-FLK liquid leakage position sensor displays liquid leak locations in meters which can be converted into area displays for up to 20 areas. Additionally, the sensor can be used in combination with a touch panel to visually display the leakage location as seen from the floor.
Unlike previous models, users of these liquid leakage position sensors are able to observe changes in the extent of leakage, as well as the occurrence of a leak in another place.
With previous sensors, when leakage occurred at a second location after having first been detected at one location, the position display for the first location was changed and the display value became unreliable, leaving the user to guess the position of the leakage. Now with the K7L-UP-FLK, the position display for the first leak remains unchanged, even when a second leak is detected.
As the liquid leakage position sensor cable is made of fluorocarbon resin with chemical-resistant materials there is little out gas, allowing it to be used without worry in a clean room. Furthermore, easy to use connectors make it simple to connect, disconnect, install and replace.
With the K7L-UP-FLK liquid leakage position sensor the starting position for leakage monitoring can be shifted, making it easier to understand. This function changes the 0-m position for the sensor cable, meaning when there is a distance between the K7L-UP-FLK and the place where the leakage is detected, the display can be made easier to understand by changing any distance to 0 m.
Another feature of these liquid leakage sensors is the ability to use compensation for discrepancies between blueprints and actual sites to adjust for actual site conditions. This function changes the length of the sensor cable to any value and when there is a discrepancy between the actual length and the measured length, this figure can be compensated to any value.
A wide selection of outputs, from relay to communications, are available making it easy to connect the leak detection system to a PLC or touch panel. Furthermore, these units are suitable for use around the world thanks to conformation to international safety standards, and a display language that can be switched between English and Japanese.
Finally, easy setup software makes installation of this sensor simple. Even for multiple sensors, free setup software can be downloaded to make the setup simple.
Typical applications for K&L-UP-FLK liquid leakage position sensors include:
- semiconductors / FPD factories
- internet data centers
- computer centers
- telecommunications exchanges
- chemical and pharmaceutical factories
- public facilities such as museums and libraries
