Amprodux Introduces New Model Level Alarm/Control Unit

Amprodux, manufacturer of a broad line of level instrumentation, offers an attractive, compact singlelevel alarm and control unit called Model 101.

The model 101 has a field-adjustable selector switch, for low or highlevel alarm/control. It has a multiturn- potentiometer sensitivity adjustment to determine exact tripping level, and a trip-point delay of approximately 1.5 second, to prevent accidental tripping due to splashing or turbulence. The relay has single-pole double-throw 5-ampere contacts, and LED to indicate the status.

This control unit can use any Amprodux RF capacitance-type probe, all of which are intrinsically safe for all hazardous areas, including Class I, Div. I. Probes are available for most applications, including corrosive, viscous, flammable, and explosive liquids, as well as granular solids.

The Model 101 can be used for high-level alarm/control to prevent overflow, or low level alarm/control to prevent runout, pump from running dry, heater from burning out; to detect leaks of hydrocarbons, water, chemicals, etc. on floors, under computer floors, in tank vaults, or in the interstitial cavity of double- wall tanks; to detect oil-water interface in a sump or separator, water under fuel, or other liquid-liquid interface.
