Areas of Activite:
A wide range of sensors, instruments, systems and services covers the areas of level, flow, pressure and temperature measurement, liquid analysis and recording, including the connection of field instruments to process control systems as well as automation and logistic solutions.
Endress+Hauser foster a culture of innovation. In 2010, the Group generated with over 8,500 employees worldwide net sales of around 1.3 billion euros.
More than 50 years ago, on 1 February 1953, the Swiss engineer Georg H Endress and the German banker Ludwig Hauser founded the L Hauser KG in Lorrach, Germany.
Later, In the 1980s the company started a campaign to meet the 'challenge of microelectronics' and to take over the technological lead. The transition from signal-oriented to information-oriented process automation forced Endress+Hauser to seek active participation in various fieldbus initiatives; today the company ranks as global market leader.
In 1995, Dr h.c. Georg H Endress passed the leadership of the company to his second eldest son, Klaus Endress, who is currently the Group's Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Level sensor for liquids and solids
Continued investment in research and development allows the introduction of new products which are future-orientated and can be readily integrated into the new automation systems of today.
Since 1953, Endress+Hauser have manufactured level measurement instruments for industry and have developed and optimised a wide range of measuring techniques. Today, a wide range of designs and process connections are available accompanied by application-specific interfaces. All instruments have been extensively tested and certified.
Measurement systems using Endress Hauser's process pressure and differential pressure transmitters, with long-life ceramic measuring sensors, are the highly accurate and forward-looking alternative to conventional transmitters and pressure gauges with an electric output signal.
You can choose from a practical programme of systems for almost every task that involves pressure measurement. From the single measurement point to the interactive measurement facility with a connection to supervisory automation systems, we offer you the best solution. National and international approvals (e.g. EEx, ATEX, WHG, VbF, StEx, CSA, etc.) permit our systems to be used in all areas of application.
High-Performance Instruments for Measuring the Flow Rate of Liquid, Gas and Steam
Volume or mass flow measurement of gases is common in following industries: food and beverage (e.g. for freezing purposes), steel, chemical, petroleum. It is also used in any site which uses natural gas for energy generation.
Applicable Flow Technologies
-Coriolis mass flowmeters
Direct mass flow measurement of industrial gases with high accuracy, independent of gas mixture and no upstream piping required.
Economical volume flow measurement with low pressure drop, e.g. in natural gas and air applications.
-Thermal mass flowmeters
broadly applicable direct mass flow measurement with wide measuring range and negligible pressure drop.
-Differential pressure flowmeters
General purpose volume flow measurement for larger diameters and high pressure applications.
Basic principles of temperature measurement
Temperature is the most frequently measured parameter in the process industry.
In electrical, contact thermometers two measurement principles have asserted themselves as a standard:
RTD: resistance sensors
In RTD resistance sensors the electrical resistance changes with a change in temperature. They are suitable for the measurement of temperatures between -200°C and +800°C and stand out due to high measurement accuracy and long-term stability. The resistance sensor element most frequently used is a Pt100 that has a nominal value of 100Ω at 0°C. Pt100 sensors are manufactured in different formats:
- Wire wound ceramic sensors: a spiral of platinum wire is wound and embedded in ceramic powder within a capillary and is fed to the outside by platinum wires.
- Thin film sensors: a platinum layer is vaporized on a ceramic plate (sputtered). A glass layer is melted on in order to protect the connection wires and the platinum layer.
As a standard, Endress+Hauser RTD resistance sensors fulfill the IEC 0751 accuracy class F 0.15.
A thermocouple is a component made of two different metals connected with each other at one end. An electrical potential (thermoelectric force) is caused due to the Seebeck effect at the open end if the connection and the free ends are exposed to different temperatures. With the help of the thermocouple reference tables (see IEC 584), the temperature at the connection (measuring junction) can be calculated.
Thermocouples are suitable for temperature measurement from 0°C to +1800°C.
"You only pay for what you really need." We take this statement seriously at Endress+Hauser and offer our instruments in three different segments.
The classification in these 3 segments allows you to select an instrument tailor-made to your requirements. Our products always stand for high quality and reliability regardless of the segment you choose.
