Gems Sensors & Controls Introduces a Robust No-Moving-Parts Thermal Dispersion Flow Switch at OEM Pricing

Share Article

OEM priced for high-volume integration, new FS-600 Series flow switches feature durable stainless steel housings and solid-state thermal dispersion sensing technology. They work with both conductive and non-conductive fluids. Immune to changes in viscosity, FS-600 Series switches are especially suited for sensing flow in particulated fluids and slurries. With no moving parts they offer years of dependable service, even in applications without filtration.


New Gems FS-600 flow switches use solid-state thermal dispersion to provide robust operation with no moving parts.

Gems® Sensors & Controls™ (Gems), a global leader in liquid level, pressure, and flow sensors, miniature solenoid valves, and fluidic systems announced the launch of the new FS-600 Series “no-moving-parts” flow switches for OEM applications.

The FS-600 is a robust flow switch made from durable stainless steel that works with both conductive and non-conductive fluids. Suitable for fluids with large particles and slurries, the solid-state sensor is immune to changes in viscosity. With the use of thermal dispersion technology the FS-600 will provide years of dependable worry-free service even in applications without filtration.

The FS-600 is available in various housings to suit a wide variety of pipe sizes for flow rates from .1 to 10 GPM at an affordable price. The straight through switch is designed for a long life and can be mounted in any orientation. The FS-600 can be customized with any set point based on specific customer applications.

“The FS-600 is a robust solution for customers using traditional flow switches with moving parts,” says Kevin Castonguay, Product Marketing Manager for Gems Sensors & Controls. “Because there are no moving parts to jam, wear or break, the FS-600 flow sensor eliminates maintenance issues. Finally, a no moving parts flow switch is available at OEM pricing.”
