Hydro-Mix VII Moisture Sensor for Mixers - Features
The Hydro-Mix VII is a digital moisture sensor that has been designed to fit flush with the floor of a mixer or conveyor. It will accurately measure moisture content of the material at 25 times per second as it passes across the ceramic face plate during processing.
Digital technology provides precise, linear moisture measurement.
Advanced Digital Signal Processing
The sensor response may be adjusted remotely using the Hydro-Com software to minimise the effects of noise of the measured signal. Advanced Digital Signal Processing provides a clear signal with a rapid response.
New Measurement Modes
Choice of measurement modes for optimising sensor performance in a variety of applications and material types.
Fully Temperature Compensated Measurement
The sensor internally adjusts for mechanical changes due to temperature fluctuations
Easy to Interface
Two analogue outputs and digital RS485 communications and configurable digital input / outputs make the sensor simple to integrate into a control system.
Measuring in the Mix
Reading at 25 times per second the sensor continuously detects changes in the moisture of the materials throughout processing.
The Hydro-Mix VII can be remotely configured using Hydro-Com diagnostic software. All readings and sensor parameters are available including the type of output and filtering characteristics.
Replaceable Ceramic Faceplate
Easily replaceable on site or by a Hydronix approved reseller, this is a fast and cost effective solution to minimise downtime and the inconvenience of a return to base repair.
The ceramic faceplate and protection ring are the only parts exposed to wear when installed. Under normal use and regular maintenance, the sensor will last for many years.
Accuracy of Measurement
All measurements may, if required, be calibrated to an accuracy of +/- 0.2%. If used to reach a target the accuracy can be better than 0.1%
The linear unscaled output provides repeatable measurements that can be used to control to a pre-set moisture target without further recalibration. It is also possible to calibrate the unit to provide a meaningful moisture reading which can be used in a control system or displayed using Hydro-Com.
Temperature output is available to provide a readout of material temperature.
Using the Hydro-Com software a graphic trace may be viewed to assist in selecting the most suitable set up parameters. This information may also be used to monitor the process to determine the effectiveness of the control system.
