LEXINGTON, KY (June 27, 2019) - Pressure losses in pneumatic systems can be costly and upset machine efficiency. The new AVENTICS PE5 pressure sensor from Emerson measures systems losses and will alert when the leakage rate is more than a pre-determined value. This lets extreme leaks to be recognized early and addressed, before they become a major issue.

 

The device has two digital or one digital and one analog outputs. An IO-Link connection creates it simple to connect to an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) network. The sensor can be used on new installations or easily added to an existing machine.

 

"Pneumatic system leaks can become a big issue for companies using lots of compressed air" said Dieter Michalkowski, IIoT specialist with Emerson's machine automation business. "Excessive leakage can lead to the need for larger compressors, or compromised machine performance. This new sensor addresses that issue in a simple and easy to implement way."

 

When the machine is switched off, the AVENTICS PE5 sensor measures pressure loss over time. If the pressure drops faster than planned, a local alert is set, and a sign can be sent via the analog or digital outputs. The local alert consists of a modification in display color from green to red. To trigger a maintenance task or to easily make a work order, the analog and digital signals can be sent to a PLC or other network. The analog output can be changed between a current or voltage signal and the user has full control over the set points. The IO-Link connection offers further set up and diagnostic options. The local exhibit also shows how much faster the pressure has decreased than expected.

 

The PE5 is rated for IP67 protection and mixes electric precision with user-friendly versatility. The sensor includes simple switching between current and voltage, and between PNP, NPN and push-pull. This flexibility makes the PE5 to be used in a wide range of applications. No matter the environment, with the zero-point offset function the pressure sensor can be set to zero at any time and thus offers precise display and switching information.
