The Sensor eValuator is a valuable tool for verifying that LynxTM cavity pressure sensors are working properly. The unit provides diagnostics on typical sensor problems such as piezoelectric sensor drift due to moisture or contamination, preload, and zero shift.
The Sensor eValuator can also detect sensor installation errors caused by improper pocket dimensions, damaged wires (strain gage only), and damaged sensor heads. A test report with sensor configuration can be emailed or printed from the device.
This device allows you to test up to 30 sensors at one time and can verify that a force was applied to the sensor. It comes with a 7-inch Samsung tablet, an Otter Box®, and a Lynx cable, and it is powered by a 120 VAC power supply.
The Sensor eValuator is intended for use by:
- Tryout shops—test sensors before shipping tools to customers
- Process Engineers—verify that sensors are working when the tool arrives or when a told goes back into production
- Set-up technicians, mold maintenance personnel, and anyone who needs to verify the operation of cavity pressure sensors
To install the eValuator software on your Android tablet visit the Google Play store from the tablet and search for “sensor evaluator”.
NOTE: Users will need to uninstall the current application from the tablet and then install the new app.
