Gems FS-380P Series Flow Switch

Gems FS-380P Series Flow Switch

Industrial strength. That’s how we describe the Gems FS-380P series flow switch. The FS-380P’s lower pressure drop reduces the risk of clogging, while its compact inline design makes it tolerant of particulate and less susceptible to sticking than alternate designs. The FS-380P’s primary construction material is polypropylene making it lightweight…

How does a pressure transducer work?

How does a pressure transducer work?

Not all of us respond well to pressure, but that’s exactly what happens with a pressure transducer. If you’ve wondered how they work, these devices convert pressure into an electrical output signal such as voltage, current, and frequency. Sensors, meanwhile, allow the transducers to proportionally react to the applied force…

Understanding the different types of RotorFlow® Sensors and choosing which is right for your application

Understanding the different types of RotorFlow® Sensors and choosing which is right for your application

To start, let’s first define a flow sensor: a flow sensor is a device used to totalize or monitor the rate at which media is flowing through a given space, e.g. ducting, piping. Gems Sensors developed the RotorFlow® Sensor to provide visual indication, continuous sensing and accurate switching. The paddlewheel…
