Modular sensor design

Analyse up to 4 different gases simultaneously with 3 modules in one table-top casing

In order to be able to adapt the measuring system as flexibly as possible to individual measuring tasks, the individual components are designed in a modular way. This created a modular system in which the different components such as measuring unit, radiator unit, measuring cuvette, etc. are interchangeable. In addition to aluminum and stainless steel as standard cuvette materials, PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) is therefore available as well. The aluminum cuvettes of the IR sensors are gold-plated on the inside, the stainless steel cuvettes of the UV sensors are made with an inert coating inside and outside. This sophisticated sensor design can also be used to simplify ‘exotic’ applications without requiring a completely new development. The modularity of the replacement and maintenance in case of service is greatly facilitated. Completely glued gas sensors, on the other hand, can only be exchanged as a whole unit and thus generate high follow-up costs (total cost of ownership) in case of service. Each version can optionally be equipped with an oxygen and/or pressure sensor.

Integrated Sensing Systems (ISS)

Analytical & Laboratory

Integrated Sensing Systems (ISS) offers analytical and laboratory sampling instruments for measuring BRIX, °Plato, concentration, specific gravity, viscosity, and density. These instruments are designed to deliver fast response times and uncompromising accuracy for sampling processes. The principal of operation is based on the Coriolis effect. The resonating sensing tube takes advantage of MEMS technology. These devices have MEMS inside. The result is a very accurate density measurement for performance in a compact package. The user interface for the MDM150 can be any desktop, laptop or tablet computer running Windows software and the Fluidic Communication Software. The user can configure, display and record results. The computer also powers the MDM150 through the USB port. The MDM150 measures liquid density to a resolution of 0.0001 gram/cc and an accuracy of 0.0005 gram/cc. Optional dynamic and kinematic viscosity can be measured from 0-50 cP (0-50 cSt). Liquid temperature is measured with a range from 5 to 60° C with an accuracy of 0.3 °C. Density and temperature can be used in the device to calculate concentrations such as % ethanol in water, % glycol in water and sugar in water (BRIX).

Embedded Sensors

 

The Micro Sensors are available in two different versions: the Micro Liquid Density Sensors (LDS) and the Methanol Concentration Sensor (MCS). These sensors are designed to integrate and embed into larger systems and solutions to satisfy the needs of system integrators and OEMs. Currently the Micro Sensors can measure density for liquid materials only. The principal of operation is based on the Coriolis effect however, the resonating sensing tube takes advantage of MEMS technology. These devices have MEMS inside. The result is a very accurate density measurement for performance in a very small package. These sensors are designed for use in general purpose electrical environments. The sensors are calibrated to cover a range of 0.6 to 1.3 grams/cc. Voltage outputs are used to communicate measured density and temperature. A RS-232 serial output is also available. Advantages of Micro Sensors:

  • Immune to environmental vibrations because of high resonating frequency
  • Silicon sensing tube which increases measuring performance
  • Miniaturized packaging for easy mounting
  • Continuous, real-time measurement
  • Flexible configuration for BRIX, °Plato, concentration, specific gravity, and more
