SCHMIDT® Flow Sensor SS 23.400 ATEX

Thermal flow sensor for uni- or bi-directional measurement of flow rate of air and gases with simultaneous detection of the flow direction in an explosive atmosphere (Zone 2).

 

  • Thermopile head (very fast response time)
  • Flow and switching signal
  • Probe length 130 … 300 mm
  • Measuring ranges 0 … 1 m/s to 0 … 20 m/s
  • Bi-directional measurement (detection of flow direction, optional)
  • Vertical adjustment (for laminar flow applications, optional)
  • Sensor programing (optional)
  • ATEX gases, zone 2: II 3G Ex nA IIC T4 Gc (optional)

C* leanroom sensor

  • Extremely compact, because electronics are integrated into the sensor tube.
  • Sensor element in the chamber head and protected against mechanical stress.
  • Linear analog output for measured value edition, two switching outputs to output the flow direction and the signal of threshold.

 

By installation into a measuring tube suitable for the measurement of the standard volume flow or mass flow.

 

  • Laminar flow monitoring in cleanrooms
  • Monitoring of the overflow
  • Cooling air monitoring
  • Flow measurement in test benches
  • Mass and volume flow measurement
  • Use in potentially explosive atmospheres caused by gases (zone 2)

 

SCHMIDT® Technology - simply a question of better measurement
