The sensor QMS 70-100R is a compact and robust sensor using an unique capacitive sensor technique as well as highly sophisticated electronics. The big single sided sensor, i. e. sensing area at the top enables weight measurement of fluids just being or already filled up in containers. The measurements may be used for checking the presence of fluids or controlling the filling process.
The demands for the ”presence of fluid” application may be covered by the sensor version with a switching output as well as the filling of a distinct preset quantity. The switching output is activated as soon as the fluid or a preset fluid quantity is detected.
Using the sensor with analogue output enables more sophisticated applications. Due to the analogue output, that delivers sensor signals between 0 and 10V proportional to the quantity measured two principal applications exist: The use of the analogue voltage by the external machine control unit or by a controlling or analysing unit from Hossbach Sensor Technologie. The best solution for controlling the filling process is achieved, when the HST Flow Controller is used. Due to its “teach” performance the filling process is calibrated and defined in a very useful way, that obviates the need for complicated calibrations by an external machine control unit.
Because of its little space requirement, the QMS 70-100R is easily integrated in filling stations or filling machines.
