Introducing the ‘NEW’ FTMg – Compressed Air Flowmeter from SICK Sensor Intelligence

Energy Management is a key focus for many Production companies and Compressed Air is one of the most cost intensive Energy Sources, so to monitor the Energy Consumption and Flow Rate to detect Leakages has a high cost saving potential.

The FTMg thermal flowmeter measures gas flow and temperature as well as the process pressure, making it a cost-saving multi-talent. With high measurement dynamics and low pressure loss, it measures non-corrosive gases with extreme efficiency. The contrast-rich color display enables easy operation of the FTMg and allows for representation of several measured values as a process diagram.

Internal data logging over seven days and integrated static evaluation helps detect even the smallest leaks in a pneumatic systems. PoE also enables simple web-based connection to a PC or a cloud to make energy consumption more transparent. All measurement data can be transmitted via IO-Link or with switching and analog signals.
