The enclosure has a micro-switch that powers the Gill Sensor when the enclosure door opens. This way the battery life of the Gill Sensor with 4 x 9V alkaline batteries is in excess of 6 months
Independently Powered Enclosures for Gill Sensors
This “Plug and Play” setup for Gill Sensor installations is ideal for remote areas where the 220 VAC power required to operate the sensor is difficult or expensive to provide.
Since the Gill Sensor employs a permanent magnet sensor, it only needs power for measurement and display, and therefore does not need to be powered continuously.
The enclosure has a micro-switch that powers the Gill Sensor when the enclosure door opens. This way the battery life of the Gill Sensor with 4 x 9V alkaline batteries is in excess of 6 months. With a larger Li-Ion battery pack, the expected battery life is two years.
The Gill 4212i Condition Sensor has a visual display and
comes with the following features:
- 4 Measurement Options
- 3 Output Options
- Captures and Retains Ferrous Debris
- Continuous Real-Time Monitoring
- Easy Installation
- Low Cost of Ownership
Fine and coarse particle contamination is a major cause of breakdowns in hydraulic and lubrication oil systems; therefore continuous real-time oil debris monitoring plays a crucial role in developing a predictive maintenance strategy.
The industrial oil condition monitoring sensor has been developed to assist the plant or automotive engineer in improving the reliability of their equipment. By continuously monitoring the most common causes of gearbox and transmission failure, the sensor provides early indications of a potential problem allowing for planned investigation and remedial action to be implemented before catastrophic failure occurs.
With the Gill Sensor installed, real-time oil monitoring is possible. Gill Sensor readings are taken from a visual display, which encourages the general inspection of equipment wear by attending technicians. An added benefit is that the magnetic properties of the sensor remove wear particles from the oil during normal operation, acting as a filter in the system, but most of all – it is affordable.
It is clear that Gill Sensors could be the first line of defense in your Lubrication Management practice.
