ISE70/71, 3-Screen Display Digital Pressure Switch for Air

ISE70/71, 3-Screen Display Digital Pressure Switch for Air

This next generation ISE70 pressure sensor provides continuous quantitative values, as well as switched digital outputs when pressure set points are met.  This sensor is also IO-Link compatible.  Sensor information, such as identity, functional state, cable connection, and current or switch values can be set or monitored remotely though an IO-Link master, and connected to a fieldbus network.  The ISE70 is designed for abusive environments that may also include splashed coolant, lubricants or grime.  Electronics are packaged in a metal housing, while the piping connection is a stout lug with female threads, which together protect the sensor against accidental collisions with other objects in the area.  A smooth display face with membrane type buttons avoids contamination from grit and sticky residue that could clog or jam raised rubber buttons.  The display is angled and can rotate 336 degrees, to permit easy reading when indirectly mounted.  The main screen shows instantaneous values in red or green, while the sub screen setting appear in orange.  Switch indicators will also light when set points are reached.

PF3W7-L, Digital Water Flow Sensor, IO-Link, 2-Screen 3-Color Display, IP65, 0.5-250 Lpm

PF3W7-L, Digital Water Flow Sensor, IO-Link, 2-Screen 3-Color Display, IP65, 0.5-250 Lpm

Applications requiring a constantly monitored flow of cooling or cleaning water now have the perfect solution with the launch of the new PF3W Digital Flow Switch Series from the world leaders in pneumatics - SMC. Developed following the success of SMC’s PF2W flow switch range, their R&D engineers have now taken these flow switches to a new level by improving both their design and operating performance. Depending on the selected model, the new Series PF3W is now up to 40% smaller in volume than the previous range thereby offering improved piping space and flexibility. Designed to work with fluids up to 90ºC, these switches incorporate an in-built temperature sensor so that both flow and fluid temperature can be effectively monitored at the same time. According to SMC engineers, pressure losses have also been reduced when compared to the previous range and the new PF3W can also be used with ethylene glycol operating fluid making these switches ideal for use in chiller type applications. Further improvements include the addition of two screens incorporating three colour numerical displays which can also be rotated in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions thereby offering even better display visibility during operation. Available as non grease type and with analogue output if required, the new Series PF3W range meets IP 65 enclosure protection standards and are both RoHS and CE compliant.

ISA3-L, Digital Gap Sensor, 2 Screen 3 Color, IP67 with IO-Link

The ISA3-L is an IO-Link compatible version of SMC's ISA3 digital gap checker.  A gap checker uses air pressure to verify the presence and proximity of a workpiece.  Applications include confirmation of raw material placement before machining or other fabrication operations, or the correct seating of a component into a jig or fixture to trigger the next assembly sequence.  ISA3-L includes features like 2 sensors detect supply and outlet pressure, to help determine whether and where this is a clog.  NPN or PNP switch type is selectable electronically.  The sub-screen has been divided into 2 screens, to display more information or finer resolution.  The lower limit of the setting range can be extended down to zero.  IO-Link communication expands functionality.  Gap size, supply and outlet pressure are available as 16-bit integers. 6 bits and settings monitor 2 switch outputs.  2 additional bits are available for pressure and error diagnosis.  Settings can be stored by the IO-Link master to copy automatically when replacing or deploying multiples.  ISA3-L is CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP67 enclosure rating.
