2014-01-30 13:21:20 - Selectable Level Capacitive Level Probe measurement from Rechner - ideal measurment for liquids or bulk materials
The Rechner i-Level is an analogue level measurement probe with a measuring range which can be set by within the measuring area of the probe.
As a specialist sensor distributor and automation solutions provider More Control source and support the complete range of Rechner sensors.
Rechner i-level probe The i-Level probe uses the Rechner patented 3 electrode principle ensuring an accurate repeatable measuring position and ignoring significant build up of product for all but highly conductive liquids. This makes the probe ideal for bulk materials as well as most liquid applications.
Analogue measuring range user selectable within the analogue measuring area
2 additional switching points which can be set at any place or outside of the analogue area. With intelligent PNP /
NPN recognition, normally open or normally closed function programmable.
Analogue outputs available are 0 … 14V, 4…20 mA or 0 …20 mA
Supply voltage 18…30VDC.
Easy Teach Function
On request variants with Easy Teach by wire (ETW) or CANBus interface are available.
On request Unit also available with fixed programming of analogue range and switching points. .. Mount and Go.
Electronic Lock – prevents undesired changes of the programmed adjustment
Two digital outputs can also be set anywhere within the measuring area of the probe, either within or outside the user set analogue measuring range
The i-Level probe has many excellent features
The standard version has a G1“process connection and the head is incredibly compact at just 30 mm diameter and only 75 mm length outside of the container
Connection materials are all FDA conforming stainless steel VA No. 1.4305 or 1.4404 and can also be connected to hygienic, metallic sealing process adapters
The probe material in contact with product is as standard GFK, with variants for the plastic bodies of PE, PEEK, PTFE or PVDF
The probe has an intelligent PNP/NPN recognition. The choice of normally open or normally closed output is programmable
The i-Level probe is ideal for level detection of bulk material or liquids. With the two additional switching points additional tasks can be achieved with the same probe such a dry run protection for pumps and high level output signal to avoid overfills and spillages.
