SICK Pty Ltd introduces the non-contact
DOSIC ultrasonic flow sensors designed to precisely detect the flow volume of
conductive and non-conductive liquids in demanding environments.
Featuring a rugged design, the
new DOSIC ultrasonic flow sensors come with a measurement channel and stainless
steel housing, making them ideal for measuring tasks in hygienic and highly
demanding environments. Combined with a compact and hygienic design, the DOSIC ensures
highly reliable flow measurement results, making the sensor suitable for a wide
range of application possibilities, especially those involving restricted
spaces or aggressive cleaning agents. The flow volume is determined in a
non-contact manner since there is no contact between the sensor and the flow.
Key features of DOSIC ultrasonic
flow sensors include two configurable digital inputs and outputs, up to two analogue
outputs, and an IO-Link interface to an adaptive control unit ensuring
effective monitoring; IO-Link reducing cabling and enabling complete control
and monitoring of the sensor in Industry 4.0 machine environments; absence of
moving parts eliminating potential contamination risks in demanding food
industry environments; straight, seal-free, and self-emptying measuring tube
made of high quality stainless steel (316L with Ra ‚â§ 0.8); and high quality
stainless steel housing providing required ruggedness and resistance.
DOSIC ultrasonic flow sensors come
with EHEDG certification and FDA compliance. These rugged sensors can withstand
aggressive cleaning agents in CIP and SIP operations as well as temperatures up
to 143 degrees Celsius in SIP processes for up to one hour.
The sensor automatically adjusts
its parameters if the liquid is changed. The plug-and-measure solution
eliminates the need for initial medium calibration and reduces installation and
