Euroswitch once again confirms its vocation and commitment to continuous research. The Italian company has inaugurated a new R&D department. It covers a surface area of over 40 m2 and is equipped with high-precision state-of-art test instruments.
Euroswitch has recently inaugurated a new Research & Development department at its headquarters in Sale Marasino, on Lake Iseo (near Brescia, Italy), which is going to become the pulsating heart of the Italian company that specializes in the design and manufacture of sensors for applications in different industrial sectors.
The new department covers a surface area of over 400 m2 and is equipped with sophisticated cutting-edge instruments for monitoring, measuring and testing the mechanical and electronic components and finished products designed and produced by Euroswitch.
The facilities were set up in accordance with the strictest international standards, and part of the area is reserved to the measurement of components. Micrometres, altimeters, durometers, load testers and beamers are just but a few of the latest generation equipment used.
All instruments are tested and certified by accredited standards bodies and are subjected to a rigorous calibration and maintenance schedule.
Another part contains equipment and rigs for conducting function tests and lifetime trials in accordance with reference standards or to customer specifications. The production process is monitored via a remote display system controlled by the engineering department. There is also an area dedicated to prototyping.
Euroswitch once again confirms its vocation and commitment to continuous research and preservation of the highest quality standards to the benefit of businesses worldwide.
A new electronic differential indicator
An example of Euroswitch vocation to R&D is the new electronic differential indicator Mod. 980, the latest-technology frontier for a continuous even more precise and accurate monitoring of the state of clogging of filter elements.
This new product mainly features two alarm threshold setting options. Unlike what happens with differential transmitters, the signal is linked to differences in pressures (P1 high and P2 low), with the possibility for the user to choose the value to be attributed to digital outputs (three outputs: one analogue and two digital).
The technical characteristics can be summarised as follows:
– a 4-20mA analogue signal – starting from 25% of full scale;
– 0.5-10 bar setting range (high-end products from main competitors can work at 1.3-9 bar);
– digital outputs programmable at 75% and 100% of the setting pressure;
– maximum working pressure 350-450 bar, depending on the thread diameter;
– built-in temperature sensor for thermal offset and lock;
– electrical connection with a 5-pin M12 plug;
– brass or steel body;
– complete separation between clean and contaminated fluid.
Being highly performing, the 980 electronic differential indicator is clearly compatible with any type of fluids, including gaseous substances. Being extremely compact (it is less than half the size of similar products), the digital outputs can be set as desired (time delay, ascending and descending hysteresis and pressure delay) – the entire system is inhibited (thermal lock) until a set temperature threshold is exceeded.
It is designed for use in filtering, hydraulic and plumbing systems. Special versions with different materials and/or electrical connections are available on request, in accordance with the practice adopted since long by Euroswitch, which has always manufacturedtailored products to meet customer-specific needs. An Atex-certified version is also available on request.
