INDUCTIVE FLOW SENSORS

These devices are designed to mount between a positive displacement dispenser and the tooling. They are used to detect actual flow in the line. Keep in mind that flow and pressure are different things.

INDUCTIVE FLOW SENSORS NO VOLUME CONFIRMATION
How They Work: 
A small plunger (monitored by a sensor) is moved by the grease when grease flows through the device. The plunger is not moved by air bubbles when they pass through the device. Advantages:
Advantages:
Simple to adjust and program
Does a great job finding small air bubbles.
Inexpensive:
Available as an option on GSS/GPMD10000
Disadvantage:
Does not work well with material that has contamination or debris
Must be mounted close to dispenser or injector to assure dispense velocity.

APPLICATIONS

FS3001*

Manifold mounted, 20-250 V AC/DC (two wire)

 

3000 PSI

For use with high pressure and high flow systems.

FS3002*

Manifold mounted, 10-30 VDC PNP (DC three wire)

FS3009*

Inline mounted (Requires no manifold), 10-30 VDC PNP (DC three wire)

1000 PSI

For use with low pressure and low flow systems.

* FS sensors can be modified to include an NPN by adding an NPN suffix to the end of the part number. For example, FS3009 to FS3009NPN.
