Operation

The LM series is designed to provide an extremely reliable level switch at a very cost effective price. This series replaces the standard explosion proof enclosure utilized in our LX series with a general purpose enclosure.

sensor-head-diff1

The principle of operation measures a temperature differential between a heated and a reference temperature sensor (see figure above). The differential varies as the type of product surrounding the sensor changes. This allows the level switch to detect a greater number of different products than any other currently available technology. The different product types are shown below in the sensor output chart. The field adjustable set-point can be adjusted to detect any two products shown.

The electronics feature a SPDT relay switch output with options for power input of 120 VAC, 12 VDC, and 24 VDC or VAC. Calibration is easily performed by adjusting a potentiometer on the circuit board.

Applications
