Flow Sensors / Flow Meters
Products Lineup : Gas Flow Rate
The compact case of the FD-EP Series houses a flow sensor and a pressure sensor, making it easy to diagnose the status of pneumatic equipment. The specialised application function makes real-time diagnosis and predictive maintenance of cylinders, suction transfer, seating and air blowers easy. The free flowing structure prevents pressure loss, clogging and supports both small and large flows. When selecting the sensor, just choose the one that matches your tube diameter. The high-definition display allows for intuitive operation with no need for an instruction manual. This one device can handle applications in which gases flow forward and backward such as cylinder forward and backward motion and the suctioning and vacuum release during suction transferring.
Zero Risk of Clogging
The FD-EP Series has a free flowing structure with no protrusions or obstructions in the flow path. Therefore, there is no need to worry about clogging or pressure loss caused by the flow sensor itself. Enjoy peace of mind throughout the installation process.
Pressure loss and clogging caused due to rectifier mesh plate inside.

There are no protrusions or obstructions that can cause pressure loss or clogging.
Selection Is Easy
Conventional air flow sensors have a different rated flow range depending on the model, even for the same tube diameter, making it very difficult to find the appropriate model for novel applications. The FD-EP Series can handle flows ranging from minute to large, eliminating the need to worry about the rated flow. Choosing a product is as easy as selecting the tube diameter.

The FD-EC Series easily attaches to the outside of a tube, eliminating problems such as pressure loss and clogging, allowing for an uninterrupted supply of air. It can measure small and large flows and is compatible with various tube materials. When selecting the sensor, just choose the one that matches your tube diameter. The high-definition display allows for intuitive operation via the display amplifier, and diagnostic mode makes it possible to check the status while the sensor is attached to the tube. This sensor can detect gases regardless of the direction they flow, allowing for installations that fit the existing device layout.
Zero Installation Risk
The FD-EC Series is free from all risks associated with conventional flow sensor installation, such as pressure loss, clogging, air leakage, or contamination. Also, because there is no need to cut tubes, the air supply does not need to be temporarily shut off during installation.
- Clogs due to multi-layer mesh structure
- Leaks from coupling
- Zero risk of pressure loss, clogging or contamination
- Zero air leakage
Ultra-Compact and Ultra-Lightweight
Air tubes are often thin, with limited space between tubes. The FD-EC Series is ultra-compact and clamps on for easy installation anywhere. The ultra-lightweight body also eliminates the need for mounting brackets.
High-density mounting is possible.
Products Lineup : Air Efficiency Module
MP-F Series simultaneously senses the flow, pressure, temperature and humidity of air. This can all be visualized along with energy consumption when the connected power monitor is used. This unit is equipped with a function that automatically records the air and electricity consumption (data that is vital when attempting to reduce energy consumption) at all times. The stored data can then be checked on the highly expressive multi display. Also, data can be analysed easily with the specialised PC software. The shut-off valve is an energy-saving feature that eliminates unnecessary air consumption by blocking air when the machine is not operating. This unit monitors the air status to detect problems such as pressure drops and condensation before they occur and notify the user of these errors.
Visualise Air and Electricity Consumption
Easily visualise equipment energy consumption (air and electricity consumption*), which is important for energy conservation measures. The unit also has a “full-time recording function” that automatically records data on the main unit. Accumulated data can be viewed on an expressive multi-display.
*An energy monitor (MP-FEA1) and CT (MP-FEC) are required to measure electricity consumption
Flow × Pressure × Temperature × Humidity + Energy
The MP-F Series enables equipment energy consumption (air and electricity consumption) to be easily visualised, which is important for energy conservation measures. While doing this, the single unit can monitor air pressure, temperature, and humidity. Additionally, it comes with a shutoff valve that conserves energy by shutting off air leaks that can occur when the equipment is not in operation.
