Since April 1974, when the first pneumatic transducers 1:1 were sold, Valcom® supplied to industry many hundred thousands sensors. In 1978 Valcom® was already producing the first flanged electronic transmitter, using LVDT sensors combined with a mechanical range adjustment. Passing through the introduction of the full electronically adjustable units at the beginning of the 80s (4-20 mA with analog output) Valcom® embraced the coming of the Smart® electronics with microprocessor and Hart® communication protocol. Thanks to the attention directed to the continuous changing of the world technologies panorama, Valcom® is nowadays able to offer instruments with a programmable microprocessor and digital transmission, presenting, next to the most typical applications, on the edge technologies like sonar technology as well as ultrasonic.
Valcom® offers several leading solutions that, due to the long experience in mechanical design combined with the use of special alloys, suit different applications; chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industry, marine industry, food and beverage industry, water treatment industry, and gas distribution.
