The Hydro-Probe SE is a digital, microwave sensor designed to measure moisture in flowing materials. Typical applications include moisture measurement in industries that use a pressurised vessel, calandria or dryer as part of the process.
- Body: 316 Stainless steel
- Faceplate: Ceramic
- O-Rings: EPDM
The sensor must be placed in the flow of material and is bolted to a flange mounting which is welded to the vessel.
2 Configurable 0-20mA or 4-20mA current loop source available for moisture and temperature. May also be converted to 0-10V DC.
2 configurable digital signals are provided for batch average start/stop or for moisture / temperature multiplexing purposes.
Digital (Serial) Communications
Opto-isolated RS485 2-wire port. Uses Hydro-Com communications protocol for read/write access to sensor parameters and values. Ethernet and USB interfaces are also available.
Approximately 75-100mm material dependant
- Pressure: Full vacuum to 5 Bar gauge
- Electronics Section Protection: IP67
- Moisture: 0-100% material dependant
- Brix: >50º Bx
- Materials Section: 0-125ºC
- Electronics Section: 0-60ºC
The sensor will not measure ice.
Outputs are updated 25 times per second.
The sensor is fitted with a 10-way MIL-SPEC connector. A 4, 10 or 25 metre, 6 twisted pair cable pre-assembled for connection to a waterproof junction box is available.
