New generation of Wenglor weFlux_ fluid sensors with IO-Link 1.1

Treotham introduces the new weFlux_ series sensors from Wenglor designed
to simultaneously acquire relative pressure and the temperature of liquids and

With ongoing development of its product portfolio in the field of fluid
sensor technology, Wenglor is enabling process monitoring of smart machines for
the digital age. Not only do the new weFlux_ pressure sensors acquire process
values via the intelligent IO-Link 1.1 interface, in accordance with the 2-in-1
principle they also combine two measuring functions into a single housing.

Pressure and temperature measurement
in a single sensor

Wenglor’s engineers have succeeded in integrating a temperature element
into a pressure measuring cell, allowing weFlux_ pressure sensors to
simultaneously acquire relative pressure and temperature in liquids and gases.
Combining these measuring functions in a single unit enhances economic
efficiency because fewer sensors are required for process monitoring. Additionally,
the reduced number of sensors is in line with the trend towards more and more
compact systems and machines.

Process monitoring makes machines

All the sensors included in the weFlux_ series are equipped with the
most up-to-date IO-Link version 1.1. They can be used to acquire all relevant
process values such as pressure, flow and temperature. In combination with Wenglor’s
wTeach2 software, a digital platform is created for smart machines by means of
which the fluid sensors configure themselves automatically, and with which
acquired data can be evaluated and visualised in real-time. Thanks to
intelligent process monitoring, machines are utilised to their fullest extent
and systems are preventively protected against damage.
