LTX01 Continuous Capacitance Level Transmitter

Brand: Intempco Controls, Inc.

INTEMPCO LTX01 series 2-wire level transmitters are highly reliable microprocessor based sensors designed to measure tank levels of liquids and certain dry bulk media in metal tanks.

LTX01 sensors measure the change in capacitance that occurs as the tank level changes and outputs a standard loop-powered 4-20 mA signal.

After calibration any change in level is recognized and converted to an Analog 4-20 mA signal.

LTX01 sensors use very high frequency and very low amplitude sensing circuitry to greatly minimize the effects of coating on the sensing probe.

The LTX01 includes a standard 4-20 mA loop-powered LTX transmitter housed in a rugged enclosure, a 0.50" (12.7 mm) diameter rigid probe for ranges up to 20 feet (6.09 meters) and a mounting fitting.

A remote mounted DIN Rail transmitter is also available when calibration at enclosure is not practical.

Probe material is SS316, supplied bare or PFA Teflon jacketed. The LTX01 is designed for tanks which have fitting connections of 1/2" NPT or larger.
