            The new DAC series allows accurate recording of measured values in extreme situations, such as pressure spikes or pressure surges, pressure gradients during explosions or combustions, e.g. in the case of ballistic measurements or the ignition of internal combustion engines.

            Piezoelectric sensors are suitable for dynamic measurements up to ranges of more than 100 kHz. They are very small and can easily be integrated into the applications. Use of the DAC requires a charge amplifier which converts the generated electric charge into a corresponding output signal.

          • Pressure transmitter with digital interfaces

          • IO-Link | RS 485 Modbus RTU | I2C Pressure ranges 0 … 100 mbar up to 0 … 600 bar

            Whereas pressure transmitters with analogue output signals and switching contacts dominated the market a few years ago, devices with digital interfaces are becoming increasingly important - Industry 4.0 sends its regards. BD|SENSORS has taken up this challenge like no other provider of electronic pressure measurement devices. As impressively documented by the product matrix below, BD|SENSORS has probably the widest product range of pressure measurement devices with global interfaces in the world.

        • LEVEL

            • Submersible probes | level probes

            • BD|SENSORS offers a wide range of submersible probes designed for the measurement of fill levels of fluid or paste-like media or for levels of water and waste-water. The sensors are based on hydrostatic pressure, i.e. the fill level is found by measuring pressure.

              The submersible probes are available with many types of enclosure materials, pressure sensors and diameters and will thus in their standard version already offer perfect solutions to predominant installation conditions.

              he detachable submersible probes are noteworthy. These designs allow very simple detachment of probe and cable, requiring no tools. This is a decisive advantage during maintenance or servicing, since only part of the submersible probe will require attention, not the entire installation. with stainless steel sensor LMP 308 | LMP 808 with ceramics sensor LMK 358 | LMK 808 | LMK 858 The range also includes other designs such as submersible probes with integrated overvoltage protection, temperature sensors or data loggers, also types communicating via RS 485 interface or HART® protocol.

            • Screw-in transmitters

            • pressure ranges 0 … 40 mbar to 0 … 60 bar

              Due to the ability to combine stainless steel and ceramic diaphragm wiht housing materials of stainless steel or plastic and different sealing materials, our screw-in-transmitters are suitable for almost all liquids occuring in industrial level and process measurement.

            • Detachable submersible probes

            • Our detachable submersible probes boast easy maintenance, debugging and repairs. Sensor heads are in this case separable from the instrument without touching the remaining cabling. You may now examine, clean or replace the probe head and then simply screw it on again. Simple, fast and at the drop of a hat.

          • EVALUATION

              • Evaluation devices and displays

              • In order to correctly interpret analogue signals, display and evaluation devices are indispensable.

                Besides the classic version with display and analogue outputs (PA430, ASM430), BD|SENSORS offers with the process display of CIT-series an evaluation device that can be combined with our pressure measuring devices and hydrostatic submersible probes and is furthermore also suitable for acquiring for example temperature and potentiometer signals.

              • Data logger

              • The data logger can record up to 2 million measurement values with a maximum measuring rate of 1 Hz in internal memory (8 MB).

                By connecting a USB stick, the capacity can be enlarged to several GB. The LoogySoft software (CIT 600 / CIT 650 ) or DAQ-Manager (CIT 700 / CIT 750) helps the user displaying (table, graphic), saving, evaluating and exporting the recorded data.

            • INDUSTRIES

            • The number of different applications across the various sectors is virtually limitless. However, a special solution that meets customer requirements must be found in each specific case.

              This is exactly what BD|SENSORS does best. We are able to cater for most of our customers' needs through our extensive range of standard products that can be modified as necessary in order to create the optimum solution. However, we can quickly come up with special designs too thanks to our highly qualified team of expert developers.
                • Machinery and plant construction

                • The machinery and plant manufacturing sector spans an enormously wide range of different applications. Plant control is based on reliable and accurate measurements based on sensors. This particularly also applies to the measurement and communication of pressure and fill levels.

                  Be it pressure sensors, pressure transducers or electronic pressure switches, BD|SENSORS will offer you the most cost-effective solution in terms of technology or price - from cost-effective OEM pressure transducers up to precision instruments for reference measurements:

                  • Pneumatics and hydraulics
                  • Machine tools / presses / injection molding machines
                  • Test rigs / test systems
                • Energy generation and transmission

                • Our CEO Rainer Denndörfer is convinced that conventional energy generation technologies will persist adjacent to renewable energies. BD|SENSORS will thus offer suitable electronic pressure transducers and hydrostatic fill level probes for both fields of energy generation and also be ready to design new ones where needed.

                • Environmental technology

                • water/waste water/recycling

                  The acquisition of fill and gauge height is a central requirement in this field. BD|SENSORS here deploys the highly reliable method of hydrostatic fill level measurement. In practice this is implemented in different variations -  be it in the form of level probes for surface and ground water applications, submersible probes for wastewater treatment plants and storm water overflow tanks, or down to fill level probes for tank farms and in container construction. 
                  In addition to probes of any imaginable type required for water processing, we also offer solutions designed for aggressive media such as acids and lyes.

                  Innovation

                  The combination of a diversity of materials for enclosures with sensors made of metal and ceramics is a perfect basis for innovative customer solutions. BD|SENSORS in this way ensures that the hydrostatic water and fill level concept will remain superior to any other method of measurement, both in terms of technology and price and in terms of accuracy, service life, reliability, simple fitment and commissioning.
