SICK Pty Ltd presents new intelligent solutions for a
broad range of level and point level measurement applications.
The LFP Inox and LFP Cubic level sensors feature differing
probe lengths and probe types, allowing more fields of application to be
covered, especially in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
LFP Cubic and LFP Inox sensors operate according to the
TDR measurement principle, a ‘guided microwave’ principle that determines the
propagation times of electromagnetic waves. A level signal is generated from
the time difference between the transmitted and reflected pulses. The sensor
can output this signal as a continuously measured value (analogue value) and can
additionally derive freely positionable switching points from the signal
The procedure ensures maximum reliability and the best
possible measurement results without factors such as pressure, temperature,
vacuum or dust having any significant impact. The specially developed foam mode
allows LFP sensors to be also used for highly foaming media.
LFP Cubic –
Flexible up to the probe tip
Key features include compatibility for use in virtually
any liquid; modular probe allowing easy and quick integration into any
application; applications in deposit-forming and foaming liquids allowed; intuitive
setup using four pushbuttons and a display to ensure quick and easy adaptation
to the measuring task; and separate electronics, IO-Link interface, and process
connection in titanium.
LFP Inox –
The clean solution
A hygienic level sensor for liquids, the LFP Inox
features FDA-compliant materials in an EHEDG-certified design to enhance the
reliance for optimum and unrestricted cleaning; modular connection system
allowing simple and flexible installation in any application; and high
temperature and pressure resistance enabling unrestricted use under CIP and SIP
conditions. This impressive profile is topped off with communication capability
via IO-Link to the superordinate control units.
