The SlideControl controls Powdery products that are transported on air slides in many different industries. Until now it was impossible to continuously get information about the flow.
With theSlideControlthere is now a sensor available which monitors the material flow on the slide without any contact.
By using microwaves signals the SlideControl measures the distance between the flowing material (surface) and the sensor, thus the height of the flowing material on the tissue.
This filling height is provided as a 4 … 20 mA signal. If it comes to a standstill or demolition of the conveying system, the output signal immediately drops to 4 mA (even if the material is still in the slide).
