IFM SA5000


We are IFM Product supplier in India

Flow sensor

  • Measurement of flow and temperature at the same time
  • Optimised for water, oils and air
  • Red/green display for clear identification of the acceptable range
  • With switching output, analogue signal and IO-Link
  • The process connection can be rotated for optimum alignment
