New series of point level sensors

June 11th, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

ifm electronic’s new LI21 series point level sensors provide reliable overflow protection for liquids, and in particular, for hydraulic oils and coolants.  The sensors also monitor the minimum level and any leakage in the tank. Setting the application via two buttons and with a clearly visible LED switching status indication only takes a few seconds. The new point level sensors are approved as overflow protection according to the German overspill standard WHG section19 to monitor the overfilling of tanks. Deposits or foam can be suppressed by adjusting the unit providing additional safety. Due to the capacitive operating principle, the sensors are wear-free and have no moving components. Moreover, the new point level sensor has cULus approval.  The sensor is installed in the tank from above. The immersion depth in the tank and so the point level can be precisely adapted using a clamp.  The new operating concept enables setting and adjustment of the output function by pressing just one pushbutton.
