Detection of Pipe Elbows

A very simple and efficient way to ensure the correct position of a pipe elbow is to attach an actuator at the elbow and detect it’s position with an inductive sensor for each possible elbow position.

The greatest danger for these sensors is the mechanical damage caused by the operator during mounting. This risk significantly increases over time as the seals wear, and thus the actuator is moving closer to the sensor.

Due to their especially large switching distance, Uprox+ sensors provide an extra safety distance that avoids sensing problems.

Your Benefits

  • The inductive Uprox+ WD sensors reliably detects pipe elbows at pipe manifolds and thus ensure high system availability

  • High tightness and resistance to chemicals
  • Suitable for use up to Ex zone 1

  • Transfer panel for beverages

  • Inductive sensing of the pipe elbow

  • Inductive Sensor BI15U-EM30WD
