Laser contamination monitoring sensor

Micfil Laser contamination monitoring sensor

The universally applicable micfil laser contamination monitoring sensor (CMS) automatically measures and displays particulate contamination, moisture and temperature levels in various hydraulic fluids.

It is designed specifically to be mounted directly to systems, where ongoing measurement or analysis is required, and where space and costs are limited.

The micfil CMS measures water content using a capacitive RH (relative humidity) sensor. The result is expressed as percentage saturation. 100% RH corresponds to the point at which free water exists in the fluid, i.e. the fluid is no longer able to hold the water in a dissolved solution.

All micfil CMS units are supplied with software to download automatically new results as they are generated, provided the test is done while being directly controlled by the software.

Or alternatively historical results can be downloaded from the CMS inbuilt memory. When the memory is full, the oldest log entry is overwritten automatically: Which test are logged, and when, are determined by the log settings. Each log entry is time-stamped and contains the CMS serial number, so that it can be identified later.
