Gems Sensors and Controls has introduced a range of magnetostrictive level sensors designed for a variety of end user and OEM applications. The XT-1000 sensors provide continuous operation and are said to offer high levels of precision and reliability.
The stainless steel sensors provide accurate continuous level measurement in lengths from 20cm to over 4m. They measure liquid media levels using the complete probe length and are largely unaffected by temperature. Offering constant sensing of fluid level regardless of the physical state of the media, the sensor is able to operate in environments where bubbles, foam, condensation, precipitation, pressure, temperatures or changes in density are present.
The 4-20mA sensor is compatible with a variety of tank dimensions, and an explosion-proof version is available.
