ATEX ENCODER - Absolute Profibus Through Hollow Bore

SCANCON’s Model: SCH88BEX, a new ATEX absolute encoder with Profibus Interface. It’s a strong, compact (89mm footprint), cost-effective, through hollow bore encoder. Engineered for rugged conditions, it’s reliable for extra harsh environments and is the encoder of choice for Zone 1 & 2 applications.

Condumax II On-Line Hydrocarbon Dew-Point Analyzer

Automatic, on-line measurement of hydrocarbon and water dew point in natural gas.

Viscosity-Compensated Plastic Flowmeter and Switch for liquids

Kobold’s VKP plastic flowmeters that operate on a special suspended float principle with cylindrical measuring tube and spring-loaded float with orifice.

CLEAR VISIBILITY – KOBOLD’s SELF-CLEANING FLOW INDICATOR FOR LIQUIDS

To check the flow processes in pipeline systems and for insight into the interior of process pipes, many flow indicators are used in which the flowing medium sets a rotor turning and thus to a large extent visibly signals a flow. Kobold’s DAA self-cleaning flow indicator, with the unique characteristic of the rotor being housed in a rotatable glass cylinder. 
 

TURBINE FLOWMETER FOR DIFFICULT MEDIA

Kobold’s flowmeter model DOT, perfectly suited to measure the flow of low viscous liquids.

Optimising production line maintenance for gas burners

Whenever flow of gases needs to be adjusted or monitored, KOBOLD's model UTS, a practical and affordable variable area flowmeter for monitoring gas burners. This compact measuring instrument can be placed at various locations, precisely where required.  Recently the company was tasked with optimising gas burner production line monitoring in order to achieve a ‘No Product Rejection’ status.

Smarter Format Change – Power Pack in the Industrial Ethernet

The motorized size changeover of machine spindles or machine axes is now being implemented in various ways. The solutions to this are often relatively rudimentary and result in the fact that no handwheel or crank is rotated, with one or more buttons being pressed instead. Whether this meets the requirements of a smart process chain or Industry 4.0 is questionable. Intelligent positioning drives can be an efficient solution in such a case.

Keller ARC-1 IoT Upgrade

ARC1 with the latest NB-IoT and LTE-M mobile communications technology

Temperature measurement on ultra-thin glass

Touch displays, such as for smartphones and tablets, use ultra-thin glass, which brings special challenges for temperature measurement technology in their manufacturing

Economical magnetic-inductive flowmeters

Kobold’s has on offer the Kobold MIK, a compact, magnetic-inductive flowmeter, combining a large measuring range, from at 0.01 l/min and currently to 700 l/min, and six different measuring tube sizes, from G ½ male to G 2 ¾ male; perfect for users with smaller to medium-sized measuring ranges.
