Level Measurement & Control


Hygienic point level sensors

December 2014 Level Measurement & Control

Perfect suppression of stubborn deposits, flexible installation, simple plug and play due to factory setting, as well as maintenance-free PEEK seals are only some features of the new LMT sensor family from ifm electronic. Furthermore, the sensors provide a reliable, fast switching and ideal alternative to tuning forks.

Precise level monitoring in storage tanks or run-dry protection of pumps are two important tasks for point level sensors. The different lengths and process connections of the new LMT series allow application specific and orientation independent installation. Even in difficult conditions with limited space, the compact design allows simple installation. The robust high-grade stainless steel housings are shock and vibration resistant and the sensors meet all requirements for hygienic areas.

The LMT sensors can be adjusted to almost all liquid and viscous media as well as powdery bulk materials. The distinction of two media is possible due to the two switching outputs which can be set independently. The parameters can be set via IO-Link or USB interface. ifm’s new LMT point level sensors are ideal for particularly demanding applications, but at the same time, are easy to use.
