Gems Sensors & Controls, an Operating Company of Fortive, participated in Fortive's first annual Day of Caring. During the month of September, Fortive invited every team member across 25 Operating Companies to dedicate a day to community service, which resulted in an estimated 150,000 total volunteer hours donated.
Compact, durable and designed for reliable performance in a lightweight package is how we describe our LS-700 float type level sensor.
In order to measure the amount of a fluid in a given container, many opt to use a level sensor. But what kind of level sensor is right for your application? Finding the right sensor depends on the environment as well as the fluid being measured. To help with that process, we’ll walk through the different types liquid level sensors and discuss how they work.
The Gems Sensors & Controls story began over 60 years ago with our first commercial success being a bilge switch for the small boating industry. Since 1955, our catalog has been continuously expanding and evolving, with each new product introduction stemming from a technology breakthrough or customer success story. The experience of our engineers is built upon thousands of successful applications, and focused on design ingenuity, continuous quality improvements, smart engineering, cost optimizations, waste reductions, and an unwavering commitment to quality.
When you need consistent high levels of performance, reliability and stability for low pressure measurement, the Gems 3500 Series pressure transmitter and transducer is your answer. The 3500 Series is ready to serve your most demanding applications from gas analysis instrumentation and medical laboratory equipment to fire pump controllers.
Just like a drill won’t work with a nail, the type of pressure sensor you’re using for a given application matters. What performs well when measuring oil and gas, for example, may not be the best fit for hydraulics.
A medical OEM designer wanted to design a waste management system that would fit into their existing footprint while also maximizing the amount of waste held by the bottle. They also needed to protect operators from biohazardous material and reduce the amount of time spent on the task of waste removal.
Could you use an extra engineer on staff? If you’re working with a supplier who is a designer and a manufacturer, that’s exactly what you gain. We call this “engineer-to-engineer collaboration,” and it can be extremely useful, especially when developing a new medical OEM design. Partnering with a knowledgeable supplier with fluidics expertise also helps keep you abreast of the latest advances in fluidics technology and provides you with their extensive knowledge of the field. As such, they help you quickly see through design challenges and identify approaches to solve them quickly.
When you think of the fluid management of the current or future design of your medical device, what challenges are you faced with overcoming? Do they include reducing development time, minimizing equipment footprint or maximizing the amount of liquid removed from your bottle?
