Toroidal conductivity sensor paired with Modbus-equipped transmitter for reliable conductivity and concentration monitoring in a single package
To meet conductivity control needs in online water quality and process applications, Sensorex has introduced the Sensorex SensoPro Toroidal Conductivity Monitoring System. The system combines a Sensorex TCS3020 probe, capable of reliable conductivity measurements in even the harshest of environments, with the company’s new EX2000RS transmitter, featuring Modbus communication for robust system integration.
Monitoring with SensoPro can prevent scaling and corrosion, reduce excessive water usage, and optimise processes in a range of applications including cooling tower water control, wastewater treatment, brine analysis, desalination, chemical processing, and other harsh or high conductivity environments.
The TCS3020 probe used in the SensoPro system measures conductivity using toroidal sensing technology, which is more stable and reliable compared to traditional contacting conductivity sensors. Toroidal conductivity sensors do not cause polarisation, do not become fouled, and rarely require maintenance. This design, along with the TCS3020’s rugged Noryl-body, reduces maintenance and increases reliability, resulting in more cost-effective operation over time than contacting sensors.
The Modbus-equipped EX2000RS toroidal conductivity transmitter completes the SensoPro system. The unit includes one analogue output and can monitor conductivity, percent concentration, total dissolved solids (TDS), and salinity.
The RS-485 serial interface with Modbus RTU or ASCII protocol provides multiple output options for integration with industrial automation systems. The onboard screen displays measurements in real-time and is capable of showing up to four weeks of historical measured values. The EX2000RS has a small form factor, an IP65/Nema4X case, weighs just 1.1 pounds, and can be wall or panel mounted.
Sensorex’s SensoPro Toroidal Conductivity Monitoring System is backed by a one-year limited warranty. This system as a whole features a conductivity measuring range of 0.0 µS/cm-2000 mS/cm, percent concentration measurements for NaCl, HCI, HNO3, NaOH, H2SO4, H3PO4, and automatic or manual temperature control. The result is a reliable conductivity and concentration monitoring system, in one simple package.
