TEMPRESS Controls has released the Limes level switch. It is used to detect fill levels and for dry run protection. Its hygienic design make it suitable for the food and pharmaceutical industries.
An electromagnetic wave penetrates the medium and the running time is adjusted according to the di-electric value. This method of operation allows it to be used in cases where the fill medium varies. The level switch does not detect deposits, foam and condensation.
It is suitable for use as a substitute for vibrating fork sensor systems and is independent of the conductivity of the medium.
It is maintenance-free and offers very short response time. It is insensitive to vibrations.
