Pressure sensors

Electronic pressure sensors are used for recording pressures in fluid technology systems. Functionality and form of execution are determined by the respective utilisation conditions. To fulfil these requirements, HYDAC offers an extensive range of miniature pressure transmitters including custom multiple pressure switches.
Electronic pressure measuring transmitters collect pressure data and convert these into a proportional output signal.
Electronic pressure switches record the measured variable for pressure, process it and output a switching signal in accordance with the presetting.

Tilt sensors

In many applications, angles of inclination have to be measured to ensure the function of machines and systems and to control processes.

The measurement systems of the HIT 1000 and HIT 1500 series are single and double-axis measuring systems for the detection of the inclination with regards to their horizontal plane.

Fluid level sensors, transmitters

In industry, level sensors are used for the most diverse tasks. In the main, sensors which are based on capacitive, magnetostrictive or ultrasonic measurement are used.
HYDAC ELECTRONIC has level sensors for each of these measurement principles in its product range.
Electronic level switches record the fluid level and output one or more switching signals in accordance with the presetting. As an option, the fluid level can also be permanently output as an analogue signal (4 .. 20 mA or 0 .. 10 V).

Oil condition sensors

Available versions: standard and for applications with increased functional safety  

The absolute measuring angle transmitters HAT 1000 and HAT 3000 are suitable for many applications in work machines and also for the stationary range, especially with respect to applications with increased safety requirements.

The sensors record the angle of rotation based on a non-contact, robust magnetic measuring method.

The HAT 1000 is a single-turn rotary encoder with a resolution of 14 bits. For applications with higher standards, the HAT 3000 with an 18-bit resolution is available, which transmits measured data via a CANopen safety interface. The sensors meet the safety requirements according to SIL2 (IEC 61508) and PL d (ISO 13849).
