Applications

Allen-Bradley solid-state sensing devices are designed to produce high-quality results in a variety of rugged environments. The flexibility of switch configuration and mounting options make the 839E suitable for a wide range of applications including:

  • Harsh Chemical Wash-Down — 316L stainless steel construction, laser-etched markings and IP66 rating for food, beverage, and other applications requiring equipment wash-down.
  • Water/Wastewater — Monitor cooling water circulation systems of pumps, turbines, compressors and heat exchangers.
  • Pump Protection — Monitor pump functionality and lubrication systems, leak monitoring in process lines. Monitor coolant flow.
  • Beverage — Filter monitoring and flow/no-flow in process lines.
  • Discrete Batch — Monitor process flows.
  • OEM Machine Builders / Large End Users — Programming with ReadWin2000 configuration kit reduces switch setup time.
