Keep Airflow Under Control No Matter What
The new AF2 series flow sensor monitors air consumption in pneumatic systems, enabling fast action in case leaks are detected. AF2 helps to optimize energy consumption, prevent machine downtime, and cut costs.
The AF2 determines not only the flow, but also the current pressure and temperature in the feed line, enabling advanced diagnosis of the system operating parameters. The data is forwarded to the control either via standard switch or analog outputs, or through IO-Link. Data can also be communicated directly via the Ethernet interface using OPC UA or MQTT. This allows information on the current or cumulative energy consumption to be passed straight on to the relevant parent system without requiring the machine control. The AF2 represents a true IIOT component.
The flow ranges of AF2 variants are ideally tailored to our AS family maintenance units and can be configured accordingly. Of course, this combination of sensor and filter can be used separately. The large, configurable OLED display clearly conveys all operating data. Various visualizations for measurements as well as process curves and cumulative values are possible.
