To further compliment an abundant line of air preparation and connector equipment, SMC offers a selection of electronic sensors including digital pressure switches, vacuum switches, and flow switches.

Positive Pressure Sensors

Positive Pressure Sensors

SMC offers a range of pressure monitoring devices to meet the diverse application requirements of our customer base. Within the collection you will find IP ratings as high as IP67, IO-Link capability, and pneumatic or liquid compatibility. Multi-line, multi-color displays offer more information with better visibility.  Digital and analog outputs characterize operational conditions in useful ways.  Categories are clearly defined to assist product selection.

Vacuum/Compound Pressure Sensors

Within the collection you will find IP ratings as high as IP67, IO-Link capability, and pneumatic or liquid compatibility. Multi-line, multi-color displays offer more information with better visibility.  Digital and analog outputs characterize operational conditions in useful ways.  Categories are clearly defined to assist product selection.

Air Flow Sensors

Air Flow Sensors

Air flow sensors provide instantaneous flow information for the compressed air supply of your applications.  Sensors may have integrated displays, or remote units with separate ouput monitors.  Displays may be mult-line and multi-color, offering more information with better visibility.  Digital and analog outputs characterize operational conditions in useful ways.  Features include multiple flow ranges, enclosure ratings up to IP65, and IO-Link capability.

Liquid Flow Devices

Liquid Flow Devices

Liquid flow devices include instantaneous flow sensors, mechanical flow switches giving an ouput signal at a set point, and a flow controller for supply stability.  Sensors within the collection are optimized for a variety of conditions, including compatibility with water, coolant, or chemicals; detection method; space constraints; and manifold configuration.  Outputs range from simle ON/OFF confirmation signals, mA or V analog, or digital IO-Link.  Review the categories to select a product best suited for your application.

Auto Switches

Auto Switches

SMC offers a variety of auto switches for actuators and air grippers.  Reed and solid state switches are available in a general purpose type or with 2-color indication, which allows the optimum operating position to be determined by the color of the light.  Solid state switches are also available in 2-color indication with diagnostic output, water resistant 2-color indication, built-in OFF-delay timer (200 ms), magnetic field resistant, heat resistant and wide range detection configurations.  Various lead wire lengths are available.

Electronic Regulators

Electronic Regulators

Electro pneumatic air regulators control air/vacuum pressure steplessly in proportion to an electric signal. They are light weight in design with a bright and easy to read LED display. The monitor output is available either as analog output or switch output.
