Multi-channel Temperature Controller, Data Logger

A temperature controller is a device with temperature measurement and temperature control functions. The sensor signal from the thermocouple and the temperature measuring resistor (RTD) is processed by the microcontroller and temperature control is performed by external equipment. You may also want a recorder to record a history of the temperature.

Single-channel Temperature Controller

A temperature controller is a device with temperature measurement and temperature control functions. The sensor signal from the thermocouple and the temperature measuring resistor (RTD) is processed by the microcontroller, and temperature control is performed by external equipment.

Temperature Sensor

Temperature sensors are mounted in various locations in industrial equipment and measurement results are output through visual display and communication functions. Measured sensing data is utilized to control the operating environment of the equipment and the process temperature, etc.

Temperature Transmitter

A temperature transmitter is a device that can communicate temperature measurements and measurement data.The sensor signal from the thermocouple and the temperature measuring resistor (RTD) is processed by the microcontroller, temperature control is performed by external equipment, and the measured data can be sent to higher-level devices such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

Weight Scale

Industrial weight scales have a wide range of measurement targets and applications, such as high-precision measurement such as chemical volume to high resolution weight measurement of the product on a line, etc.

Pressure Meter, Pressure Sensor, Pressure Transmitter

Pressure meters, pressure sensors, and pressure transmitters use sensors such as bridge resistance to measure pressure, and the measurement results are output via display and communication functions.

Proximity Sensor

Proximity sensors are devices that measure the position and distance of objects without contact, and are used to detect the position of objects in industrial production lines, switches, and so on.

Flow Sensor

Flow sensors are used in many industrial device applications to measure the flow of liquids and gases.
