Webtec’s SAE J1939 CAN sensors designed for real-time, 24/7 hydraulic system monitoring.
Webtec unveiled its SAE J1939 CAN series of hydraulic sensors for OEM mobile and industrial applications where customers require real-time monitoring of hydraulic flow, pressure and temperature. Designed for closed loop control on high-pressure hydraulic systems, the sensors are intended for mounting on a test point or onto the CT range of J1939 CAN turbine flow meters. Flows from 1 to 1500lpm (0.25 to 400 US gpm) can be measured at up to 480 bar (7000 psi). Pressure sensors can also be offered with measurement capability up to 1000 bar (14,400 psi).
Using the SAE J1939 CAN protocol, the sensor transmits signals digitally. In addition, sensors are connected in series, needing one cable to connect to the PLC.
