Thrust and Rod Drop Direct to DCS Ideal for OEM's

Condition monitoring specialists SENSONICS has enhanced its range of DN monitors with the introduction of their DN8033 thrust and rod drop transmitter. This unit is designed to measure shaft axial or rod position on a range of rotating plant.

The 4-20mA loop powered module provides easy integration with either the local machine PLC or a plant wide DCS since it is powered through the measurement loop. The unit operates in conjunction with Sensonics Senturian range of 8mm diameter proximity probes, offering a maximum measurement range of ±1mm. This extended range over similar products on the market provides further scope in application, particularly for the set-up and calibration of thrust measurement systems, which can be restricted by float in the shaft and physical access to the target.

Providing an output current proportional to displacement, the Din Rail mountable unit provides two miniature multi-turn potentiometers for the setting of the gain and zero point parameters. Also, suitable for rod drop measurements the DN8033 is ideal for OEM applications, offering lower cost option to existing systems without sacrificing measurement accuracy.

To further compliment this product range the DN8032 variant offers similar functionality but for the measurement of shaft vibration.
