EC: SA Series Flow Sensor

Process Control — Flowmeters, process sensors: ifm's SA Series Flow Sensor with digital display, pushbutton menu reliably measures the flow of water, oils, glycol and air in pipes up to 16 in. in diameter. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.


ifm's new SA Series flow sensor is designed to detect and measure the flow and temperature of oil, water, glycol and air in pipes up to 16 in. in diameter. The sensor is a reliable alternative to mechanical flow switches. Because there are no moving parts to jam or break, maintenance headaches can be avoided.

The SA Series flow sensor operates using the calorimetric measuring principle. The sensor tip houses two RTD elements and a heat source. When power is applied, the tip of the sensor is heated. The flow rate is determined as these RTDs react to the physical effect of a flowing medium conducting heat energy away from the sensor tip. This temperature-based operating principle can reliably sense the flow of virtually any liquid or gas.

A simple pushbutton menu allows the sensor to be customized to fit your application's setpoints. Designed with an integrated digital display, values may be set in green or red for indicating if process values are within range or if limits have been exceeded. Parameters may also be set via ifm's LineRecorder software or IO-Link.

Constructed of durable stainless steel, the SA Series flow sensor is built to withstand harsh environments. It features a fast response time and integrated temperature measurement as well as selectable outputs for switching, frequency and analog. The SA Series flow sensor is available in various probe lengths and process connections to fit most mounting requirements.
