Continuous measurement with float

Detect height levels continuously at any time

Our level sensors enable the continuous detection of levels, independent of physical and chemical changes of the media such as foaming, conductivity, dielectric, pressure, vacuum, temperature, vapours, condensation, bubble formation, boiling effects and density change. Via the HART® interface, parallel measurement of interface layer and overall level is possible. The level can be displayed proportional to height or volume. Process connection, guide tube and float can be manufactured from stainless steel 1.4571, 1.4435, 1.4539, titanium or various plastics.

How does a level sensor work?

These level sensors work on the float principle with magnetic transmission. The float's magnetic system actuates a resistance measuring chain that corresponds to a 3-wire potentiometer circuit in the guide tube.

What are the benefits of level sensors?

  • The reliable and proven operation principle is suitable for a very wide range of applications
  • Continuous measurement of levels, independent of physical and chemical changes of the liquid such as foaming, conductivity, dielectric constant, pressure, ...
