The OQS 2 new and improved Oil Quality Sensor puts users in control with real-time, 24/7 monitoring of oil degradation, oil condition and water ingress and is now available for purchase.
The sensor is a live, highly flexible and cost effective condition-based monitoring solution, designed to be permanently mounted within any lubrication system on any type of machine. Over 60 times more sensitive to oil contamination than any other dielectric constant measuring sensor, it provides real-time monitoring of oil condition, water ingress and oxidation levels.
The OQS 2 is completely redesigned and has includes the following features:
- Increased sensitivity and accuracy
- A redesigned housing
- A new durable connector
- IP68 certified (when connected)
- Fluid pressure resistance up to 70 bar / 1015 PSI
- New and improved software
The stainless steel sensor can be used with any mineral, semi-synthetic or synthetic oil, including fuels (diesel and bio-diesel). It is rated for fluid pressure to 70 bar (1015 psi) and operating temperatures of –40° to 248°F (–40°C to 120°C).
Digital output is via RS485 or CANbus and it supports Modbus, CanOpen and J1939. Analog Output is 4-20 mA. It is rate for sensitivity/accuracy of 0.01%, ±0.5%.
