Probes will feed info straight into Scada

Monitran is launching stainless steel 4-20mA eddy current probes that enable operators to take accurate, non-contact measurements at distances up to 20mm from a target, and feed the sensor information directly into PLC, Scada or bespoke proprietary control systems.

In common with all the probes in Montran’s eddy current range, the new units can operate in temperatures from -30 degrees C to +180 degrees C, with a sensitivity of +/-5% at 120 degrees C.

There are four models of probe available, covering measurement ranges from 0 to 2mm to 0 to 20mm and with a choice of flange mounting or threaded bodies. Also, probe tips are encapsulated to prevent ingress of oil or water.
