Checking process measurement technology

New laboratory improves testing conditions

When it comes to process monitoring, customers from the machine tool, automotive, food and beverage, or the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, for example, expect level sensors to measure reliably and precisely. SICK products not only work with a wide range of media, but also record the respective measurand as universally and independently of environmental conditions as possible. But how are process measurement technology solutions themselves actually checked before they are used by the users? Continue reading
