Customized Calibration of IFM Flow Sensors - Highlighted in New Video

Industrial oils are used for many different purposes. This is why the detection of flow and temperature is of vital importance. Incorrect adjustment of sensors to flow and temperature values may affect the energy efficiency of your installations and thereby increase the cost. All SB flow sensors from ifm can be adjusted to your specific oil and thereby enable precise programming of measurement...
