SICK Innovations: The Dosic

SICK Sensor Intelligence is renowned for their innovative sensor technology (the clue is in the name), and this compact stainless steel flow sensor is no exception...
 

Sick Dosic Flow Sensor

First, The Technology...

These neat little sensors are made with ultrasonic technology from SICK, so you know you can trust it. This technology works by emitting pulses into the liquid in your pipe or tank and calculating the time it takes the other end to receive that pulse, allowing it to tell you how full or how fast things are moving.

What Are The Advantages of an Ultrasonic Sensor?

  • Suitable for both conductive and non-conductive liquids
  • No moving parts
  • Extremely low pressure drops
  • High repeatability and reliability
  • Suitable for hygienic and non hygienic applications
  • Signal connectivity benefits
     

On To The Sensor...

With its measurement channel and stainless steel housing, this ultrasonic flowmeter is suitable for a variety of environments, hygienic or not. The compact and rugged design creates many application possibilities; limited space, aggressive media, wash down and so much more. Installation is quick and easy and does not require medium calibration. The seal-free, self-draining measuring tube really does enhance your process reliability.

What About Getting the Data?

The Dosic has not one, but two configurable digital and analog outputs available as well as IO-Link capabilities, enabling easy adjustment to the measuring task according to your changing requirements. The integrated display on the sensor is ideal for quick readings too, as it can flick between flow readings and temperature when necessary. It can be set to alert you when a certain temperature has been reached too.

At A Glace:

  • Flow measurement for water and oil-based liquids
  • Seal-free stainless steel 316L sensor with Ra  ≤ 0.8 µm
  • Straight, self-draining measuring tube
  • Compact design with short installation lengths
