A new generation of Wenglor weFlux² fluid sensors is now available in Australia, as introduced by Treotham Automation, which uses a 2-in-1 principle to acquire both relative pressure and temperate of liquids and gases.

The new fluid sensors have integrated a temperature element into the pressure measuring cell, allowing the sensors to simultaneously acquire relative pressure and temperature in liquids and gases.

This combination of measuring can enhance economic efficiency as fewer sensors are required for process monitoring, and can also reduce the number of sensors for a more compact solution.

The weFlux² fluid sensors also come with an IO-Link 1.1 interface using the latest Wenglor wTeach2 software, which can acquire process values, such as pressure, flow and temperature, as well as being used by smart machines, which can configure the fluid sensors automatically and provide data to be evaluated and visualised in real-time.

Wenglor weFlux² fluid sensors are exclusively distributed in Australia by Treotham Automation.
