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

Treotham introduces a new range of fluid sensors designed for pressure
and temperature measurement during process monitoring for Industry 4.0. Wenglor’s
product portfolio for fluid sensor technology now includes the new weFlux_
pressure sensors that enable process monitoring of smart machines for the
digital age.

The new weFlux_ pressure sensors acquire process values via the
intelligent IO-Link 1.1 interface, and in accordance with the 2-in-1 principle also
combine two measuring functions into a single housing. Treotham has, therefore,
introduced the first sensor to the market, which simultaneously acquires
relative pressure and temperature of liquids and gases.

Pressure and temperature measurement
in a single sensor

Wenglor’s engineers have successfully integrated 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 enhances economic efficiency because fewer
sensors are required for process monitoring. At the same time, reducing the
number of sensors is in line with the trend towards more and more compact
systems and machines.

Process monitoring makes machines

All of the sensors in the weFlux_ series are equipped with the most
up-to-date IO-Link version 1.1. Key capabilities include acquisition of all
relevant process values such as pressure, flow and temperature; digital
platform created in combination with Wenglor’s wTeach2 software for smart
machines, using which fluid sensors configure themselves automatically, and acquired
data can be evaluated and visualised in real-time; and intelligent process
monitoring allowing full utilisation of machines and preventive protection of systems
against damage.
