Benefits of Eagle Signal’s CT4 SERIES

by Haleigh Rozier | May 22, 2018

Eagle Signal manufactures electronic timer, electromechanical timer, and other devices. Within the electromechanical family is the HQ4 series of percentage timers. Percentage timers are a type of repeat cycle device that is compact and long-lasting. The HQ4 series is a unique timer that can function as an on delay, off delay, interval timer or repeat cycle device. Eagle Signal offers this accurate, economical, enclosed timer for a wide range of applications. Specifically, those where repetitive ON times of a fixed cycle requires adjustability. This series is a panel mounted unit with an exposed dial. The load relays’ seal protects against the environment. The HQ4 proves to be durable in industries such as chemical, feeding, irrigation controls, electric heaters, and motor controls. Recently, Eagle Signal developed an improved version of the HQ4 Series called the Cycl-Time® or CT4 Series.

The CT4 offers improved features including resolution, potentiometer, ease of setting, torque, safety, sealings, and wiring. Also, the Cycl-Time®’s resolution is more defined. For example, the colors of the faceplate offer more contrast for reading the time settings. With 100 ticks around the dial rather than 50, the CT4’s percentage options are more precise than the HQ4. The torque of the Cycl-Time® dial is more resistant to change than before. Once the timer is set, it will not rotate any further without intentional force from the user. These features combine to make the timer more accurate and easier to set. Safety is always the greatest concern when designing any product. The Cycl-Time® has a plastic guard over the terminal block to protect the user’s fingers from exposure to contractors. This percentage timer is ideal for applications environmental factors would usually cause concern. These features provide a longer lasting product and additional safety. The wiring and electrical connections of the HQ4 was also updated for the CT4. It now has four electrical connections, rather than seven, all in a straight line on the back of the body of the timer. As mentioned before, this timer is made to panel mounted. Eagle Signal continues to design the most accurate, economical, and reliable products in the industry. The HQ4 and Cycl-Time® Series are both exceptional devices fit for their specific applications. Cycl-Time® proves to be a respectable replacement option to the HQ4 Series.

Dry Run Protection by Level Detection with Clever Level

The CleverLevel® level switch protects the pump from running dry during filling and emptying of the tank or pipe. Especially in processes where foam can occur the sensor must decide if the media is just foam or liquid. Conventional sensors have problems detecting these conditions.
  • Assure pump safety
    Reliable working ignores adhesions and foam
  • Long life cycle
    Robust sensor tip, IP67 & IP69K housing, resistant to high temperature up to 150°C, 16 bar pressure proof
  • Easy to use
    Mobile configuration tool FlexProgrammer, extensive portfolio of hygienic connections for each application

Angular measurement in harsh environments

The compact GIM500R inclination sensors in robust aluminum housing are ideal for use in harsh environments.
When it comes to tough outdoor use, many sensors reach their limits. Inclination sensors by sensor expert Baumer stand for maximum reliability and durability even in a harsh environment. Thanks to the extremely robust and resilient design, the new GIM500R sensors are ideal for outdoor applications in mobile automation and ensure maximum system uptime.

The GIM500R inclination sensors excel by ultra-high accuracy up to ±0.1˚ for absolute reliability and precise positioning. The E1-compliant and uncompromising design with optimal EMC properties, IP 69K protection and corrosion resistance up to C5-M is particularly addressing demanding outdoor applications. Their shock and vibration resistance up to 200 g respectively 20 g and the wide temperature range from +85 down to -40°C make the inclination sensors particularly durable in temperature fluctuations and any type of soiling. The integrated EN13849-compliant firmware meets the highest requirements on reliability which allows for standard components to be used in functional safety systems up to PLd level. Another hallmark of the new series is optional redundant system design where required.
Inclination sensors of the GIM500R series stand out by their compact aluminum housing, high cost-efficiency and maximum flexibility in system design. They fit in the confined installation space prevailing in mobile automation and heavy vehicles.

Baumer sets new benchmarks in temperature sensing

TER8 temperature sensor is available in three variants: for front flush installation and with 20 mm or 50 mm immersion sleeve. The hygienic design ensures food safety and quality.

With TER8 temperature sensors, Baumer adds yet another high-end product to their portfolio.
The compact sensor based on RTD technology is specially designed for applications with demanding requirements on measuring accuracy and stringent hygienic standards. It is available both for front flush installation and in two variants with an immersion sleeve. With all wetted parts fully made of PEEK, TER8 stands out from products currently available on the market.
Based on the TE2 series, TER8 adopts the proven mechanical and electromechanical properties of this product family. The compact TER8 sensor housing fits even into tight spots difficult to access.
The sophisticated installation concept forgoing any elastomers but yet 3A and EHED compliant ensures optimum hygienic capabilities free from maintenance while also cutting down on maintenance and downtime.
The sensor in its front flush variant allows for direct process integration, regardless of agitators or any other inside tank assemblies. This mounting versatility allows for reliable temperature detection even from previously infeasible mounting positions. It will speed up the process, enhance process control and save manufacturing resources while improving product quality.
The front flush variant also plays to its strengths when installing in pipelines. Very low-impact in media flow, it permits the use of pigs. Contrary to similar sensors with metal sensor inserts, there are no sealing points in the process. Hermetical sealing towards the process, in particular, prevents the ingress of steam.
This ensures absolute reliability and long-life capabilities, especially in SIP processes. The specialized insulation between the sensing element and housing isolates the media temperature to be measured from ambient impacts and ensures reliable measured results.
First customer testimonials have confirmed that the innovative TER8 design has closed another gap in process control.

Efficient and flexible fluid management with the new Baumer FlexFlow family of flow and temperature sensors

FlexFlow flow and temperature sensors are available with various process connections and rod lengths

Image result for baumer flex flowWith their FlexFlow family of flow and temperature sensors, Baumer has expanded its process sensor portfolio. Based on the calorimetric measurement principle, the FlexFlow family can monitor both flow velocity as well as media temperature. The sensors have IO-Link and, depending on settings and connections, either two switching outputs or one switching and one analog output (4…20 mA/ 0…10 V). The PF20H and PF20S versions are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications.

The combination of two measuring functions in one sensor reduces the number of measuring points in closed systems and minimizes costs of installation, service, and storage. Thanks to their symmetrical, centered design, the sensors can be optimally installed in the process independent of their installation position and orientation. This guarantees precise measurements and process safety.

Several sensors can be simultaneously configured via IO-Link. This simplifies switching point adjustment for different process stages during setup or batch changeover and saves time. Diagnostic data polling and evaluation is possible at all times, increasing system uptime.
FlexFlow sensors have a robust stainless steel housing with integrated electronics and evaluation unit. Complex wiring and control cabinet assembly, as well as additional user interfaces, are therefore not required. This simplifies operation and allows efficient process management.

All models are temperature resistant to 150°C and thus CIP and SIP-capable.
