Vaisala has launched six new smart probes for its Indigo product family, optimized for demanding industrial applications. New options for dew point and moisture in oil measurements bring more possibilities for industries to save energy, optimize processes, and improve product quality.
The new probes will improve customers’ process efficiencies by providing accurate and reliable measurement data for their industrial processes. The capabilities of the new probes are based on next-generation sensor technologies.
The new Vaisala DRYCAP Dew Point and Temperature Probes DMP5, DMP6, DMP7, and DMP8 are optimized for low humidity and high temperature or pressurized environments. Dew point measurements are particularly important in various industrial drying applications, for example in ovens and compressed air systems. The dew point probes include Vaisala’s DRYCAP sensor, which is immune to particulate contamination, water condensation, oil vapor, and most chemicals. According to Vaisala, its fast reaction time gives it unmatched performance even in dynamic and low dew point applications, and the sensor’s outstanding stability enables a long two-year calibration interval.
The Vaisala HUMICAP Moisture in Oil Probe MMP8 extends the Indigo product offering to include heavy industry applications such as measuring moisture in transformer or lubrication oils to protect engines from wear and shutdown. Also introduced is the Vaisala HUMICAP Humidity and Temperature Probe HMP3, a general-purpose remote probe suitable for duct mounting in non-pressurized applications with moderate temperatures. The probe structure allows the sensor to be replaced in the field without tools, providing maintenance flexibility in demanding applications that might require periodic sensor replacement, such as paint booths.
The HMP3 and MMP8 both include Vaisala HUMICAP thin-film capacitive humidity measurement technology, which has become the industry standard in humidity measurement.
“With these new products, the Vaisala Indigo product family is getting stronger. The new probes add dew point and moisture in oil measurements to the existing parameters of humidity, carbon dioxide, temperature, and vaporized hydrogen peroxide. I am excited that we are now able to provide high-quality measurement data in a more flexible way to all industries. Contributing to smarter environments is something we at Vaisala are passionate about,” said Vaisala product manager Jarkko Ruonala.
