WIKA’s Senior Group Manager Business Development Jeff Placek said, “Mobile machine manufacturers wanted a solution which would allow field technicians to diagnose problems quickly in order to get machines back in operations. They also wanted a solution to the high warranty claims, in addition to solving the age old practice of replacing components until the failed component was found.” Enter WIKA’s new pressure transmitter, the MH-3.
WIKA has shaped up relationships with the industry’s leading companies in order to develop the next generation pressure sensor for mobile working machines. This simple, yet powerful and field proven design keeps machines running for a longer period and ensuring a peace of mind.
The new MH-3 pressure transmitter lives up to these requests and much more. The MH-3 pressure transmitter was introduced for mobile working machines, which operate under crucial working conditions, severe environments and work places were downtime would incur a big loss.
The MH-3 is built respectively on the features of the MH-2. This upgraded version has introduced, signal clamping and also a sought after diagnostic function. Hence, maintaining all machines running for a longer period by reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
Defining glitches and errors in the field just got much easier with the new MH-3 pressure transmitter for mobile working machines. This instrument, keeps up dated on the latest pressure sensor technology with the addition of the diagnostic feature.
This pressure sensor makes sure that the machine does not act in an unpredictable way, therefore it would not cause premature component failure, or shut down because of an out of range signal.
It reduces downtime, through the signal clamping capabilities that only the MH-3 has. It allows equipment manufactures to predetermine the lower and upper ranges of the transmitter output signal. This function caps a machines operation disruption from pressure spikes and overpressure conditions within the hydraulic system.
It also troubleshoots in the field with its built-in diagnostics. The MH-3 transmitter has the ability to identify the cause of machine failures. It also has a built-in transmitter which keeps a record of any failure or abnormal operations. This feature is made to support future troubleshooting and routine maintenance activities and for privacy and security reasons, the sensor will only record the maximum value of the event.
The new MH-3 pressure transmitter answers all of the critical questions field technicians and manufacturers have such as:
- What caused the machine to go down?
- Which part failed?
- How long will the machine sit idle in the field?
