New Wireless Sensors for Humidity, Temperature and CO2


EE240 wireless sensors from E+E Elektronik are the ideal solution for high quality, wireless measurement of humidity, temperature or CO2. With the introduction of state-of-the-art wireless data transmission, E+E Elektronik, the sensor specialist, is expanding its expertise into wireless sensor systems. Up to three intelligent probes can be connected to each transmitter. Each probe operates independently and can be hot swapped. Remote probes allow the sensing head to be placed at a distance of up to 10m away from the transmitter. These features make the E+E wireless sensors especially suited for industrial applications that require sensors to be routinely recalibrated without affecting network operation. The measured values can be read directly off the display on the transmitter or read remotely using your web browser from any PC in the company network ...

Mass Flow Meters


VPInstruments has changed the design of her proprietary flow sensor. Due to this new flow sensor design and a review of our calibration protocol, we offer now our insertion flow meters with one flow range; with good accuracy over the entire flow range. This flow range combines the accuracy in the low flow ranges of the old version with flow range up to 80 mn/sec, with the flow range extension of our model up to 150 mn/sec. The new flow range, 0.5..150 mn /sec, combines all benefits. With only one model you are now equipped for all your compressed air and gas flow measurements. Selecting the right flow meter has never been so easy ...
