Magnetostrictive Continuous Level Sensors
The use of magnetostriction is ideal in applications that require extremely accurate indication such as the chemical and water treatment industries. The 4-20mA sensor is compatible with a variety of tank dimensions and offers an explosion-proof version for installation in potentially explosive atmospheres where electrical equipment of category 1 (zone 0) or category ½ (zone 0/1) are required. Also available with the digital Hart protocol operating system, the sensor is able to output the position of the first, second or both floats.
“The XT-1000 increases the breadth of the Gems continuous level product line with a highly accurate magnetostrictive technology solution” says Kevin Castonguay, Product Marketing Manager for Gems Sensors & Controls. “The high resolution sensor is a robust solution for a wide variety of OEM and end user applications such as; chemicals and petrochemicals, biotech and pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering, water treatment, beverage, food processing and underground storage tanks for leak detection.”
