Radio Frequency (RF) Capacitance Point Level Indicator
The Auto-Set remote series RF capacitance point level monitors are designed for high temperature (250°C) or vibration applications to detect high, intermediate, or low levels of liquids, powders and free flowing granular solids stored in tanks, bins, silos or other containers.
The Auto-Set remote has a din rail mounted remote control unit with simple push-button calibration. The remote control unit connects to the transducer, which is mounted in a suitable enclosure close to the probe. For applications below 120° C or without any vibration, the transducer can be mounted within the polypropylene probe housing. Once the Auto-Set remote is calibrated for the application it never has to be re-calibrated. Data is stored in non-volatile memory so it is not affected by power loss. A four digit LED display shows set values for uncovered, covered and trip settings, allowing simple set-up and adjustment. A set of voltage-free changeover relay contacts are actuated when the level of the material in the container reaches the probe. The unit incorporates a unique power shield which automatically compensates for material build-up around the probe and on the sides of the container, preventing false indication. The Auto-Set remote is top or side mountable with stainless steel probes lengths up to 10m long, and can be used with container walls up to 7.5cm thick.
