Magnesonics Level Equipment 

Magne-Sonics Series 200

RF Capacitance Electronic Level Switch
 

The 200 Series RF Capacitance level switches are designed for point level alarm or control of conductive and non-conductive liquids, granular materials, foams. pastes. slurries and interface applications.  Dimensional Information

The 200 Series may be used with any Magne-Sonics insulated or driven shield level sensing probe. When a driven shield probe is used, special shield driven circuitry ignores the effect of conduc­tive material build-up on the level probe surface. Other features include adjustable relay time delay to prevent chattering in tur­bulent applications and field-selectable low or high level fail-safe modes of operation.

An optional differential adjustment feature is available for high' low pump control. The 200 Series is also offered with a PUSH­TO-TEST option to verify high level (overflow-) alarm operation without actually filling the vessel. This easy test is performed at the unit or from a remote location via a switch closure. (An adjustable capacitor is switched in parallel with level probe to check proper sensitivity adjustment and that the instrument func­tions properly.)

The electronics are housed in a cast aluminum weatherproof and explosion proof enclosure. Certification options are available for the 200 Series by FM or CSA when used with an insulated type level probe.

The 200 Series enclosures are normally mounted directly on the level probe fitting, but can also be mounted up to 25 feet from the level probe using remote mount accessories.
