Multifunctional fluid sensors for greater flexibility

DOSIC-Teaser

The new fluid sensors from SICK, such as the DOSIC® flow sensor, offer calibration-free measurements no matter which medium they are used in, ensuring a high level of flexibility. Plants do not have to be converted or operated in parallel when the fluid or medium is being changed. The IO-Link digital communication protocol also allows the process data to be integrated into an automation network.   Continue reading
