Shipboard Liquid-Level Sensor O f f e r e d By Tecnomatic Controls

A sturdy liquid-level sensor and transmitter from Tecnomatic Controls Ltd. in Britain is said to withstand the rigors of shipboard and rig applications. Constructed of stainless steel and monel (a nickel-base alloy), the Series 200 is completely seawater, oil and chemical resistant, and its transducer is fully submersible.

Adjustments to "zero" and "range" are made remotely, without removing the sensor from its location.

The instrument continuously measures the level of liquid in a tank or reservoir and provides an electrical output. Mounting adaptability makes it usable on shipboard oil and ballast tanks and for a wide range of industrial applications.

The sensor employs the well proven technology of a pressure-sensitive capsule and a linear variable differential transformer. Mechanically coupled, they translate the pressure on the capsule into an electrical output which, in turn, is amplified and transmitted in the form of a 4-20 mA full-scale signal.

The signal may be used for indication, alarm and control functions.

Power supply is 18-30 V DC and operating temperature is -10° C to + 85° C.
