Auto Surveillance Mode Adds Efficiency to Vacuum Applications
Publisher: Parker Hannifin Corp.
Overview: This paper states how the addition of a pressure sensor with Auto Surveillance features to vacuum systems helps reduce machine cycle time and add preventive maintenance features, minimizing downtime and dropped parts while increasing throughput of the machine. It describes the general applications of vacuum systems, along with their components and functions, and lists the factors that reduce Maximum Degree of Vacuum (MDV). Features and operation of a pressure sensor with Auto Surveillance Mode are reviewed, and a comprehensive illustration of a successful vacuum machine cycle is presented. The report concludes by focusing on the benefits of utilizing sensors with Auto Surveillance Mode which reduces the annual cost associated with replacing vacuum cups.
