The company ACO (Automation Components), introduces the moisture measuring sensor type MMS.
It is applicable for almost all bulk materials, granulates, powders, mixings and blending, pastes, concrete and aggregates of all kind of industries.
The water content (moisture) is measured in-situ (real time) and the process can now be controlled, monitored and recorded.
The sensor is fully configurable and submits - depending on the moisture - a signal output of 4-20mA or 0-10VDC. This signal can be hooked up directly to a PC, PLC, command circuitry or host systems for the process without additional software.
A wide power supply voltage of 9-30VDC guarantees a compatibility to all common power supplies and prevents influences of unstable power conditions.
The housing is from stainless steel with a diameter of only 76 mm and is universally applicable. The penetration (measuring depth) of the sensor into the material is approximately 120 to 140 mm (depending on the material) and measures the core and the surface moisture of the product.
Integrated calibration trimmers, self healing protection against wrong polarity, short circuit and over voltage create a very robust process device.
The circuitry is completely encapsulated within a housing of stainless steel. Your choice of sensing face; food grade crastin, ceramic, hard rubber or Teflon, - further adapts the sensor to your specific requirements.
An integrated wear out protection and temperature sensor (RTD) are available.
Latest technologies like digital moisture measuring sensors, Eex-sensors, field bus operated sensors and interfaces like RS 485 are some further developments in the field of moisture sensors.
The application for all bulk products is straight forward and easily achieved. Uncountable applications throughout the world have proven this technology in the ACO moisture measuring sensor to be a reliable and high quality product under the most demanding conditions.
The same sensors are now available with latest digital technology with interface RS 232, bus compatibility (profi-bus) and analog-output 4-20mA and 0-10VDC.
ACO-moisture measuring systems can be adapted to the customers’ unique requirements.
