L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand, has expanded its line of sensors that address IoT applications. The new IoT sensors accurately measure pressure, temperature, humidity, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, pH, chlorine and turbidity.
The new pressure and temperature sensors provide a micro-fused silicon strain gauge, a leak-free elastomer structure, integrated temperature compensation, independent pressure and temperature outputs, and robust resistance to shock, overload and vibration. Their applications include industrial process and control, automated detection, hydraulic and full-motion control, pumping stations and water treatment systems.
Furthermore, the company has added more than two dozen new temperature sensors. Some feature a sensitive platinum resistance element inside a 316L stainless steel probe and a laser-welded housing compatible with gas and liquids. Some models have infrared sensors that offer continuous measurement without contacting the measured object, a 32-bit CPU, and an optimised lens for a more uniform beam and measurements within milliseconds. Also new is a selection of temperature switches, digital temperature transmitters, and compact infrared sensors for tight spaces. These products are useful in ventilation, hydraulic, pneumatic, HVAC, water treatment and automation system applications.
The new, IoT-friendly temperature and humidity sensors include a duct-mount model for air stream measurements and two wall-mount sensors with RS-485/Modbus RTU output. Their applications include building automation, greenhouses, pharmaceutical manufacturing and chemical production.
Its new SRWQ series provides five new sensors for gauging dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, pH, residual chlorine, and turbidity. These IoT sensors can be used in chemical production, food and beverage processing, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, desalination plants, petroleum refining, cooling towers and boilers, and water, sewage and industrial waste treatment.
“There is a big demand for IoT-connected sensors in just about every industry. L-com is meeting this need with IoT sensors that are not only extremely accurate but rugged enough to deliver day in and day out, even in harsh environments. By offering a wide range of sensors off-the-shelf with same-day shipping, we can meet our customers’ urgent demands,” said Tim Houghton, product line manager.
