LTX20 Fuel Continous Capacitance Level Transmitter

Brand: Intempco Controls, Inc.

The Intempco LTX20 series fuel capacitance level transmitter is designed to measure level of fuels and oils in metallic and non-metallic tanks.

The probe measures level by measuring the change in capacitance as level changes in the tank.

The micro-processor based electronics converts this capacitance change into a linear, highly accurate 4-20 mA signal.

The LTX20 includes a standard 4-20 mA loop-powered LTX transmitter, a concentric 0.75" (19 mm) diameter concentric shield with ranges up to 10 feet (3.04 meters).

Probe material is SS316. The LTX20 is designed for tanks which have fitting connections of 3/4" NPT or larger and in applications where the liquid is relatively clean or non-clogging.

An excellent application for the LTX20 are stationary or mobile generators. This level sensor is shock resistant and very rugged. There are no moving parts.

To isolate for ground loops, a non-conductive reducer ( such as PVC ) can be used between the tank and the 3/4" NPT fitting of the LTX20.
