The new SI5 type flow sensors from ifm efector ensure high reliability in harsh environments. Both sensing element and housing are made of stainless steel.
Because of the calorimetric measuring principle, the SI5 type flow sensor operates with no wear at all, and provides high sensitivity and repeatability. The measuring range covers 3...300 cm/s for liquids and 200...3,000 cm/s for gases. Temperatures of -25...80 °C are permitted.
Adjustment to the flow and setting of the switch points are carried out by pressing a pushbutton. Multicolour LEDs on the unit indicate flow and switch points. Electronic locking of the settings and resetting the parameters to the factory setting provide additional safety.
Using process adapters, the SI5 type flow sensors can be integrated in almost any application. The unit is unaffected by the orientation of the sensing face with respect to the direction of flow, providing increased flexibility of installation.
