Gems FS-380P Series Flow Switch

Industrial strength. That’s how we describe the Gems FS-380P series flow switch. The FS-380P’s lower pressure drop reduces the risk of clogging, while its compact inline design makes it tolerant of particulate and less susceptible to sticking than alternate designs.

How does a pressure transducer work?

Not all of us respond well to pressure, but that’s exactly what happens with a pressure transducer. If you’ve wondered how they work, these devices convert pressure into an electrical output signal such as voltage, current, and frequency. Sensors, meanwhile, allow the transducers to proportionally react to the applied force of the pressure.

Introducing the LED SureSite®: Visual Level Indicator

We’re shining the light on our new product: LED SureSite®. An update to our line of SureSite® visual indicators, this new SureSite® includes LEDs that make it easy to see the level of your tank in low light and dirty environments (where traditional units would get covered or be invisible). In fact, the bright LEDs provide a 270 degree viewing range, making it easy to view your LED SureSite® from virtually any vantage point and in direct sunlight.
