FAFNIR – Price for TUHH Student
TUHH Student awarded with the FAFNIR Price. Andreas Behn from the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH) has been awarded on 12 of March 2010with the FAFNIR price: € 2500. The award ceremony was attended by Dr. Wolfgang Schrittenlacher (Head of Development / FAFNIR GmbH), and Prof. Dr. Herbert Werner (Dean of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the TUHH) and other scientists at the TUHH instead.
Member of the EHEDG
(European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group) The EHEDG is a network consisting of approximately 600 international experts from various fields such as the food industry, machine and plant construction as well as scientists and government agencies. The EHEDG developed guidelines and instructions for the production of safe food and related products for all aspects of hygienic design and production of equipment and machinery. For the practical verification of equipment and apparatus, the EHEDG has developed several test methods by which sensors, devices and systems are tested and...
NEW: VISY-Command GUI
The display of the VISY-Command GUI visualises the data provided by the FAFNIR sensors. All of the relevant data related to the tank (tank number and product name), the product (level, water level andproduct temperature) and various additional data (e.g. ullage) are displayed. The displayed tank information is always up to date and available at any time. The VISY-Command GUI is operated by a coloured 5,7” touch screen interface. If required, all of the displayed tank information can be printed out using the integrated printer. An audio warning sounds in addition for tank alarms.
HPH Ex d
An integrated zener barrier allows the connection of sensors — protection classification Ex ia / ib — in the ex zone directly to the pressure housing. In addition, the pressure housing can be equipped with a digital display. The display can be adjusted individually to face a number of directions, facilitating its reading.The octal input module VISY-Input 8, installed in a splash proof case links external alarm outputs and the tank level gauge VISY-X. This allows the indication of alarms from different systems at one central point. The connection to VISY-X is done by a simple communication...
IECEx approval for VAPORIX
This VAPORIX is authorized now also in other parts of the world, for example in Australia and New Zealand.
NEW: SMS-Box from FAFNIR
The universal device has three inputs and can process alarm or status signals of all devices but FAFNIR output signals including devices from other manufacturers. This allows messages to be routed to the example of overfill protection, level sensors, separators or by e-mail or fax in a central office or as an SMS to a mobile phone. The user can adjust the speakers so that the message sent is one, or at intervals. Then the alarm sent out with regular repetition, until the error corrected on site wurde.Mit the SMS box can receive as alerts flexible. In addition, it also offers the ability to...
VISY-X RF
The tank gauging system VISY-X optimizes automatic monitoring of the wet stocks and helps to improve and cost reduce the logistics. At petrol stations without ducting available the wireless version of VISY-X is the recommended solution. With the new VISY-RFT module the tank data is wirelessly transmitted to the conversion VISY-Command RF that has been fitted with the suitable receiver. VISY-X RF is compatible to all VISY-X components and very easy to install. The battery’s life time is very long.
VISY-X for LPG
The magnetostrictive sensor with a Buna floater and a special screw-in unit is especially designed for the use in liquid gas. The VISY-X system consists of 1-16 VISY-Stick and the conversion system VISY-Command. The software VISY-Monitor and/or VISY-Tank for visualizing and managing the tank data are optional.
NEW: VISY-Output 4
VISY-Output 4 serves as a link between the tank level gauge VISY-X and external safety equipment or alarm indicators. Each of the 4 relays can me mapped to different alarm conditions detected by the tank level gauge VISY-X. As VISY-Output 4 has its own housing it can be installed at the position where it is needed. The connection to the tank level gauge VISY-X is done by a cost-efficient two-wire cable.
CONDURIX
Continuous Level Measurement Sensor for electrically conductive liquids The new CONDURIX sensor from FAFNIR supplies information on filling levels of tanks. As a continuous level measurement or separating layer measurement it creates quality assurance and safety in the process. Application and Function The sensor CONDURIX is especially designed for use in continuous filling level measurement or continuous separating layer coverage in all electrically conductive liquids of ≥1 µS/cm. The sensor works according to the potentiometric measuring principle. By means of the micro-...
