In expanding its line of sensors for IoT applications, L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand, now offers pinpoint-accurate devices for measuring pressure, temperature, humidity, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, pH, chlorine, and turbidity.
Who Needs It & Why?
IoT-connected sensors are hot in just about every industry, making these sensors a worthy candidate for rugged applications in harsh environmental conditions. Apps include industrial process and control, HVAC systems, water-treatment systems, building automation, chemical and food production, and more.
Under the Hood
L-com’s pressure and temperature sensors feature 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. They’ll find uses in industrial process and control, automated detection, hydraulic and full-motion control, pumping stations, and water-treatment systems.
Also offered are 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 that's compatible with both gas and liquids. Some models have infrared sensors that offer continuous measurement without contacting the measured object, a 32-bit CPU, and an optimized 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 company’s 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.
In its new SRWQ series, L-com offers 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 treatment of water, sewage, and industrial waste.
L-com’s new IoT sensors are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
