Measuring devices optimise compressed air applicationsPhoenix Contact’s PSK AFS compressed air measuring devices with IO Link interface monitor the consumption of compressed air and help optimise its use. Users benefit from improved utilisation of resources and reduced energy costs.

The compact volume flow sensors apply the calorimetric measuring principle and can detect consumption quantities from 0.06Nm3/h. This allows users to detect signs of wear or system leaks early on. The devices are also suitable for operational consumption measurements thanks to the large measuring range of up to 700.0Nm3/h.

In addition to the IO Link communication system that facilitates intelligent communication between the sensor and the controller, the compressed air counters can output analogue values and measure switching thresholds via two digital outputs. These versatile options for outputting measured current and temperature data enable universal connection to process and control systems.

These compressed air counters measure the current volume flow, the volume consumed, and the temperature of the compressed air in the process that is being monitored. The devices offer a measured value and status display in addition to the numerous configuration and measuring options available via the IO Link, providing users with an overview directly at the sensor.
