New: corTEC® Sensors for Critical Liquids

Leinfelden-Echterdingen, 05 October 2018. EBE sensors + motion presents a new sensor technology at the electronica 2018 in Munich. It is suitable for the measurement of critical, highly adhesive media. The measuring principle is called corTEC®. EBE informs in trade fair hall B3, stand 430, about its technology developments. The company from Leinfelden-Echterdingen understands itself as a competence center for sensor systems and mechatronics for price-sensitive markets.

Even with critical applications the new corTEC® sensors from EBE ensure the safe and reliable detection of liquid filling levels which had been difficult to gauge so far. When it comes to liquid media it is difficult for conventional sensors to decide if the fluid actually contained in the tank or just the coating or film on the tank wall is shown. In many applications, however, the display of the liquid filling level is the decisive statement. For these special tasks EBE sensors + motion has developed a sensor technology based on the noise measurement technology. The sensor evaluates the transmission behavior of the signal frequencies and so recognizes parameters which reliably distinguish between the liquid volume and the liquid coating (film) on the tank wall. This basic technology corTEC® allows the cost-effective and reliable solution of many tasks that had almost been insoluble so far.

In addition, the corTEC® platform compensates the influences of outer disturbances and error sources such as temperature drift.

With corTEC® EBE presents a robust and versatile but cost-effective measuring process. It is suitable for the level measurement in numerous devices and systems working with a great variety of liquids. Currently, the most common applications are found in appliances, vehicles, medical engineering and production plants.
