EGE IO-Link Programmable air flow sensor LDS 1000

The LDS 1000 GAPL detects air flow, pressure and temperature in compressed air networks.

Description

The LDS 1000 GAPL detects air flow, pressure and temperature in compressed air networks. It displays the current air consumption in an easy-to-read display and responds quickly to any changes in flow speed. At the same time, the sensor can be used to measure air consumed in standard litres or standard cubic metres.

1 The end value of the measuring range depends on the inner pipe diameter. In order to measure with the specified accuracy the air pres-
sure has to take into account. In case of operating outside the functional area, the sensor generates an error message.
