The AD8/AD9 series of non-invasive ultrasonic fluid monitoring sensors are ideal for critical applications to detect air or gas bubbles as well as â€˜end of sampleâ€™ flowing through small tubing. Based on a special pulsed ultrasonic technology which permits highly accurate and repeatable detection with excellent electrical noise immunity, the non-invasive design, with no contact between the sensor and the fluid, eliminates all media compatibility and sterility issues. Detection can be carried out in a large variety of soft or rigid tubing with diameters from 1.6 to 25.4mm. These sensors are very compact and feature an integral programmable micro-controller to allow for custom sensor functionality or specific algorithms. This enables the AD8/AD9 standard sensor to be optimised to meet application specific requirements. Typical applications can be found in many patient-connected medical devices, chromatographs, analytical instruments and dispensing or liquid filling machines.

The last issue of IEN Europe before the summer break features a Special on Hydraulics & Pneumatics . Read a technical article on the effective Monitoring of Hose Assemblies , or get to know more about the Role of Valves in Industrial Automation . This month’s Cover Story is a case story on reducing the setup times of machinery by using automated actuators. In our Interview , a representative from the company Flir talks about the possibilities of thermography in industrial applications and recent advancements. As usual, we provide you with lots of add-on information, such as videos and data sheets.
Enjoy IEN Europe June/July and have a great summer.
