New compact pressure sensor extends Festo’s pressure sensing range

Festo announces the release of a new range of compact pressure sensors designed
for process and factory automation applications. Building on Festo’s comprehensive
range of sensors, the new SPAN sensor extends the brand’s pressure sensing
offer, delivering ease of use in set up, operation and maintenance.

Festo’s SPAN pressure sensors feature a compact 30x30mm form factor, are
competitively priced and come with IP40 certified protection against outside
ingress. Sharing the same intuitive menu guidance used in the recently released
SPAU and SFAW sensors, SPAN features a clear, high-contrast, two-colour,
back-lit LCD, allowing users to easily monitor their systems.

Key features also include IO-Link functionality reducing commissioning
and set-up time, and enabling remote maintenance and parameterisation; open and
modular design with high flexibility; and switchable PNP/NPN and analogue
current or voltage outputs, allowing simple and rapid integration into numerous
control systems.

Applications include supply pressure monitoring, vacuum monitoring, leak
testing, pressure monitoring at the regulator and object detection. The open,
modular and versatile functionality of SPAN pressure sensors simplifies choice
and reduces complexity for engineers.

SFAW – Monitors liquid
media

Key features include measurement of flow rate, consumption and
temperature of fluids; rotatable 340¡ degree display; IO-link support and modular
design.

SPAU – Measuring, monitoring and
sensing pressure

Key features include ability to keep pressure levels permanently under
control; flexible connection options; visual pressure status indication (Blue
and Red); and quick and easy mounting and commissioning.

SPAE – Extremely small pressure
sensor for reliable pressure monitoring

Key features include 10mm grid dimension; lightweight design ideal for
high dynamic response; easy to read, intuitive to operate; and IO-link support.

SPAW – Monitors the pressure of
liquids and gases

Key features include 9 measuring ranges from -1 … 1 bar to 0 … 100 bar;
rotatable housing rotating 320¡ and displaying at 45¡ angle; and high quality
display for quick, intuitive configuration of outputs.
