Filtration Group Particle Monitors

Filtration Group PIC 1500 Particle Monitor

The Filtration Group PIC 1500 particle monitor is for continuous monitoring of the particle contamination of hydraulic fluids.

The unit is an optical particle monitor that operates on the principle of light extinction. It consists of a measurement cell through which the fluid flows, a laser and a photo-diode. The particle monitor continuously measures the number of particles in a system and can trigger an alarm if the oil contamination exceeds a preset cleanliness class.

Features of the Filtration Group PIC 1500 Particle Monitor

  • Use as a mobile and stationary system for quick and simple determination of the cleanliness of fluids
  • Simple menu-prompted operation at the unit
  • Laser sensor for precise and reproducible results
  • Variable measurement mode (single and cyclic measurements) through internal programmable timer control, manual control or remote control via an electrical connection
  • Output of the cleanliness classes via the illuminated, 180° swivelling display
  • Evaluation to ISO 4406: 1999 and SAE AS 4059 E
  • Measurement range 4 μm(c), 6 μm(c), 14 μm(c), 21 μm(c)
  • Programmable alarm (exceeding or underrunning of the cleanliness classes) for control of external units
  • Internal operating hourmeter and measurement value memory with capacity for 3000 measurement cycles each with 6 measured values for trend tracking of historical measurement data
  • Includes “Count&Log 1500” measurement and evaluation software for evaluation and display of the measurement results on PC or notebook
  • Data polling and control of the PiC 1500 via RS232 or CANopen
  • Extensive accessories available
