Emerson's AVENTICS PE5 pressure sensor reduces pneumatic system losses.
Emerson released its AVENTICS PE5 pressure sensor measures systems losses and will alert when the leakage rate exceeds a pre-determined value. The sensor has two digital or one digital and one analog outputs. An IO-Link connection allows it to connect to an IIoT network. When the machine is switched off, the AVENTICS PE5 sensor measures pressure loss over time. If the pressure drops faster than desired, a local alert is set, and a signal can be sent via the analog or digital outputs. The PE5 is rated for IP67 protection and features switching between current and voltage, and between PNP, NPN and push-pull. Pneumatic connections include G1/4 or 4mm push-in.
