JUMO digiLine Opens the Door to Sensor Technology 4.0
Intelligent, bus-capable connection system for digital sensors in liquid analysis with integrated sensor management
With digiLine, JUMO presents a new bus-capable connection system for digital sensors. The system enables the creation of intelligent sensor networks. All important measurement parameters of liquid analysis can be measured with a single system. A new pH probe and a redox probe were developed for the market launch. In addition, proven JUMO products can be integrated for turbidity and oxygen measurements.
JUMO digiLine pH and redox sensors are delivered as a unit consisting of the sensor with reusable electronics. Once the pH or redox component has become completely worn, the connection is separated and the electronics can continue to be used with a new sensor.
The JUMO digiLine sensor network increases the number of sensors that can be connected to the JUMO AQUIS touch multiparameter measuring and control devices. Furthermore, JUMO digiLine sensors can be integrated directly in the JUMO mTRON T automation system without an additional transmitter. At present, no comparable solution is being offered by any other manufacturer.
With JUMO digiLine, a diverse range of sensors can be connected to each other in a star or tree structure. Then, only one single digital signal line still runs to the evaluation unit or controller. This enables more efficient and faster cabling of plants in which several parameters need to be measured simultaneously at various locations.
JUMO digiLine permits flexible solutions for almost every application. This opens up entirely new possibilities for industrial applications in the processing, food, pharmaceutical, and water industry.
Alongside the digiLine protocol, most digiLine sensors are also available with an analog output of 4 to 20 mA. This allows the smart sensors to be integrated even in older systems.
The system DSM software (Digital Sensor Management) is also completely new. The necessary parameterization and calibration of the pH or redox probe can be carried out conveniently in the laboratory using a PC or laptop, a USB interface converter, and the JUMO digiLine software. Calibration data and the evaluation of the sensor status are stored directly in the sensor and enable seamless documentation over the entire life cycle.
