Product description

ZILA GmbH has developed an in-line measuring system, based on non-dispersive infrared technology (NDIR), which permanently monitors the oil condition right in the system. The optical measuring system consists of a multi-channel infrared measuring cell with related electronics and peripherals. In this system, due to their typical bonding forms, the molecules in the oil absorb the infrared light to a certain extent at particular wavenumbers. During operation, these molecular properties change, which means that a signal change can be detected within certain ranges of the infrared spectrum. In this way, the system continuously provides real-time information about the oil condition, comparable to laboratory measurements. The electronics are controlled and configured via a user-friendly graphical web interface. Digital outputs and a ModBusTCP/IP interface also allow easy integration into plant controls.

Easy commissioning and operation through graphical user interface

The sensor can easily be integrated both into existing and new applications. Digital signals and ModBusTCP/IP ensure direct and easy connection of the sensor to a control. A user-friendly interface helps to configure the sensor settings quickly. For example, measuring intervals and various limit values can be defined, according to the oil parameters. Another option is to display the recorded measurement results graphically. This trend already provides information about the oil condition and can be used for monitoring at an early stage. Any changes occurring are automatically logged.

Übersichtliche und benutzerfreundlicheClear and user-friendly user interface for reading out the sensor data.
