SAN DIEGO

Vectron
International
, a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of
piezoelectric technology based products will showcase the world’s
smallest viscosity sensor at the INFO*FLEX Exhibition in San Diego, CA
from April 29-30th in booth # 908. Marketed under Vectron’s SenGenuity
family of sensors, the ATEX certified, ViSmart® viscosity
sensor solution includes a shunt-diode barrier for hazardous area use
and a VisConnect® electrical interface module for simple
integration into viscosity control systems.

Continuous, in-line monitoring of viscosity has long been a goal in the
flexographic press industry. Traditional ink measurement techniques may
require press shut-down and certainly drive inefficiency during ink
changes. Vectron’s ViSmart® ultra-compact viscosity sensor
addresses this problem by bringing the measurement to the press, while
the VisConnect® interface electronics allow users to
continuously monitor and adjust viscosity yielding higher quality, more
consistent print.

The ViSmart® VS-2511 Viscosity Sensor measures only ϕ1” x
4.23” in length. When used in conjunction with the DIN rail mountable
VB–2510 Shunt Diode Barrier and the VC-20xx VisConnect®
converter module, this highly integrated and compact sensor system
measures viscosity and temperature in-situ and in real-time.

“The ViSmart sensor really enables an efficiency breakthrough as
operators no longer have to take manual cup measurements nor slow or
stop printing runs to make viscosity adjustments,” said Gregory L.
Smolka, VP of Sensor Products at Vectron International. “In addition,
the fact that there are no moving parts helps ensure the long term
reliability of the solution. Vectron has fielded millions of
piezoelectric based products in applications ranging from
telecommunications infrastructure to implantable medical devices and
we’re excited to bring this latest breakthrough technology to the high
speed printing industry.”

The ViSmart® Viscosity Sensors are offered with the following
ordering options; ½” NPT, BSPT, or BSPP male threaded fitting with
M12X1, 8 pin male connector for detachable cable; ATEX/ ETL/CSA
hazardous certified or non-hazardous certified.

The VisConnect® Interface Modules are configured for DIN Rail
mounting and are available in a variety of interfaces including CANopen,
ASCII, MODBUS, and Analog 4-20mA.
