Vacuum Transducers with EtherCAT

All transducers of the Smartline product family from Thyracont, a manufacturer of measurement instrumentation, are now available with EtherCAT interface. EtherCAT is currently the fasted industrial Ethernet technology and convinces with easy handling. For instance manual address settings are not necessary and a diagnosis for localizing errors are already included.

Heavy duty outside – Smart technology inside: The new addition to the Smartline Family with combination sensor for loadlock applications and fine vacuum

The Smartline family presents itself completely redesigned. Packed in stable, fail-safe full metal housing, they combine modern design with intelligent technology in an elegant way. As a new member of the family, the vacuum Smartline Transmitter VSR aims at applications in the load lock, analysis technology, coating and process engineering. The sensor combination of piezoresistive sensor and Pirani filament, used in the VSR, measures from 1200 hPa (900 Torr) to 1e-4 hPa (Torr ) with optimal resolution and high accuracy.

New Patent Granted

Patent 10 2005 008 959 “Drucksensoren und Kombinations-Drucksensoren und deren Verwendung” (pressure sensors and combination pressure sensors and their application) was granted. With this patent sensors for pressure and vacuum which basically consist of two diaphragms, which move toward another and are separated through a fitted frame structure were protected for Thyracont.

Capacitance Vacuum Transducer VCC200 – For Difficult Applications

Vacuum measurement in processes containing corrosive gases, oil vapor or particulates is often attempted with Pirani or convection-driven Pirani sensors. While such sensors exhibit reasonable accuracy, they will often fail due to process contaminants and require frequent replacement. Piezo-resistive sensors, while less sensitive to process contamination, lack the needed measurement accuracy.
