Hudson, MA – Anver Corp. introduces a new vacuum leakage sensor that calibrates itself to maximum vacuum rather than a preset level and provides an audio-visual alarm if a loss of vacuum occurs.
The Anver VLS-8 Vacuum Leakage Sensor features a micro-controller chip that sets itself to a vacuum system’s peak vacuum level, displays it on an LCD, and then activates if a loss or leakage of 10% occurs; sounding a loud horn while flashing a bright red LED warning light. Compensating for altitude and atmospheric pressure, this solid-state vacuum leakage sensor is powered independent from the host vacuum system by a 9V lithium battery.
If there is a vacuum loss, the Anver VLS-8 Vacuum Leakage Sensor’s alarms will continue until sufficient increase in vacuum is achieved. Standard features include a low battery “chirp” indicator, 1/4” push-connect vacuum fittings, and an open collector output which can be connected to an I/O device, such as an emergency stop function on a CNC control. Applications include any process involving a vacuum pump requiring consistent vacuum.
