Moisture sensor for measuring bulk goods

With its new Analogue Moisture Measuring Sensor (AMMS), ACO from Wutöschingen in the Southern Black Forrest/Germany offers a new compact sensor generation suitable for nearly all bulk goods, granules, powders, mixtures, paste-like materials and substances from various industrial fields. It´s a clever combination of approved measuring systems, long-term experience and close cooperation with clients.

The device is equipped with user-friendly calibration by specialized software. Multi calibration up to 10 points is possible. Calibration directly in process is a big advantage. For easier handling calibration directly at the sensor is possible as well. The measuring range or average value can be adjusted conveniently directly at the sensor. The output of measuring value is made by analogue output signal from 4 to 20 mA.

All electronics are embedded as usual in robust durable stainless steel housing with highly resistant ceramic disc. Due to its identical dimensions the new AMMS sensor can be easily upgraded in any existing process.

The new sensor AMMS will be presented during the Powtech 2014 Nuremberg at booth 423, hall 5.
