CONDIX is a low maintenance, quick-an-easy-to-install combination of measuring transducer, which saves time and money. This all-in-one solution for monitoring of conductivity in liquids does not require a separate measuring transducer nor an expensive special cable or indicator. It integrates directly into superordinate systems such as SAPS and SCADA with the universal Modbus RTU interface.
“The new and recently launched CONDIX conductive conductivity transducer, from Martens, determines the conductivity of liquids. The measured ohmic resistance provides information about the ion concentration in the electrolyte” commented Jan Grobler, Managing Director of GHM Messtechnik South Africa, the local distributor for the GHM Group.
“The integrated transducer converts the signal into a digital process value and further scaling in the subordinate system is not required”.
Grobler said “The universal Modbus interface enables convenient configuration and calibration of the measuring transducers. Standard fittings are utilised and parameterisation prior to field installation is easily carried out via a PC tool at the work station”.
“Conductivity of water is an important function because it measures the water’s ability to pass electrical flow. This is important to industries such brewing, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing processes. The monitoring of water preparation, reverse osmosis and ion exchanger systems, in salt water, underground water preparation on ships, gas scrubbers and landfill seepage water for example, can also benefit from this new transducer technology” commented Grobler.
CONDIX provides Industry 4.0 functions that are useful for intelligent self-diagnosis,
Efficient maintenance, reduced downtime and a longer sensor life. With integration of the transforming electronics and the implementation of a digital interface, the sensor provides information about its status such as the internal sensor voltage and additional device parameters in addition to conductivity and temperature measuring variables.
• Compact all-in-one solution, robust technology in a compact design
• The measuring transducer is integrated in the sensor and has a direct connection to the SPS
• Less cabling, less installation work
• All levels up to the PLC can be connected with one bus cable
• Universal Modbus interface enables convenient configuration and calibration of the measurement transducer
• 4-electrode measuring cell: resistant to polarization effects
• Predictable maintenance for reduced downtimes
CONDIX is an example of the advancement of Marten’s industrial analytical measuring technology. The integration of a digital interface supports conductivity measurement in the world of Industry 4.0. “We believe that CONDIX will deliver high quality monitoring affording the user a more precise conductivity reading” concluded Grobler.
