LTX60 Miniature Capacitance Level Transmitter

Brand: Intempco Controls, Inc.

The Intempco model LTX60 capacitance level transmitters are very compact and vibration resistant.

They feature one-piece welded tubular design, welded fitting and a concentric internal bare stainless steel or PFA clad probe.

Electronics are potted into the tube portion above the fitting. DIN Rail mounted transmitter can be installed up to a 1000 feet (300 meters) away from the process where calibration can be performed.

The microprocessor-based electronics convert frequency change, detected by the probe, into a linear, highly accurate 4-20 mA signal. This compact design makes installation and setup a simple task.

The advanced signal conditioning circuitry greatly minimizes the adverse affects of poor dielectric and material coating on the probe.

LTX60 RF transmitters can be used in metallic and nonmetallic tanks, stationary or mobile equipment. Ideal for small tanks of all types, they can be used in virtually any liquid, conductive or non-conductive.

One ideal application is measurement of fuel and oil level of tanks in mobile equipment. Compact, rugged and hermetically sealed construction of LTX60 series sensors cannot be beat in performance.
