Point level detection

March 18th, 2013, Published in Uncategorised articles

Gammapilot FTG20, the latest instrument from Endress+Hauser for point level detection, combines all of the strengths of the brand – quality, safety for users, more efficient processes and substantial cost savings over its entire life cycle. Based on Geiger-Müller technology, the Gammapilot FTG20 has the highest measurement sensitivity for the automation industry in its class. This device consists of two separate units: a detector (which contains one to three Geiger-Müller counter tubes), and a transmitter. The latter first converts the measured value into a switching command, and then provides the switching in the form of a relay or a 8/16 mA output. Both units (detector and transmitter) are connected via a cable which is available in lengths of 5, 10 and 20 m. This guarantees the highest degree of flexibility in installation. The device features a modular design and can therefore be used with one, two or even three Geiger-Müller counter tubes with very high sensitivity. In addition, the concept permits the device to fit perfectly into any application and to reach very low radiation values even in the shortest switching times of 0,4 s.
