SICK-MAIHAK’s new level indicator for bulk material, the MaihakMBA 200, can carry out all kinds of level measurement and can also help with ensuring plant safety. It reports when limit values are reached and can be used as a ‘bin full’ or ‘bin empty’ sensor.
Not only can the MaihakMBA 200, the new SICK-MAIHAK level indicator for bulk material, carry out all kinds of level measurement, it can also help maximise safety in your plant.
So what makes the MaihakMBA 200 different from any other level indicator? It reports when limit values are reached and can be used as a ‘bin full’ or ‘bin empty’ sensor.
The MaihakMBA 200 is the latest product in the MBA series of accurate and reliable rotating paddle switches. A simple flick of a switch and the device can be used either as a ‘bin full’ or ‘bin empty’ sensor.
When the device indicates that the bin is full, the safety-oriented measurement can prevent a silo overflowing if, for example, there is a power cut or a fault in the supply line.
The MaihakMBA 200 is a multi-voltage system with an in-built micro-controller. This means it also features as standard an electronic time-delayed on/off switching circuit, which responds to irregular product movements. Gold-plated contacts ensure a high level of switching reliability at low currents and voltages, for example, when the device is connected to a PLC.
The device is easier to assemble than its predecessors. The robust housing contains an extra large connection box for installing cables, a rotatable indicator head that allows the device to be aligned exactly, and a spring tension mechanism that can be easily adjusted.
The MaihakMBA200 level indicator is available in a wide variety of special versions and features an extensive range of shafts. This means it can be adapted to cope with hazardous areas, increased pressure, and temperatures ranging from -60°C to +800°C, making it the expert for handling almost every kind of bulk material.
