Hydrostatic level measurement in hazardous areas

March 16th, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

The new hydrostatic submersible pressure transmitters from Ifm Electronic have Atex, IECEx and GL approvals and are thus especially suitable for hazardous areas. Further advantages for the user include easy integration in the application, high resistance and long-term reliability. The submersible pressure transmitters allow easy, reliable and low-cost level measurement in hazardous and marine applications. They offer a stainless steel housing, FEP cable and Atex approval for group 1, category M1 and group II, category 1G and 1D. They also meet IECEx and GL approvals according to the environmental category C, F, EMC 1 and ensure flexible and versatile use of the PS2-series transmitter. With longitudinal water resistance, no water can penetrate the transmitter if the cable is damaged. This makes it a reliable solution for level measurement in containers, tanks, wells, streaming water, drill holes and waste water plants. In many different applications the transmitter measures levels with an accuracy of 0,5 % and a long-term stability of 0,2 % per year.
