LTX50 Miniature Capacitance Level Transmitter

Brand: Intempco Controls, Inc.

Intempco’s model LTX50 two-wire level transmitters are compact in design and ideal where installation space is limited or where tanks are small.

They are also excellent for mobile equipment applications. The LTX50 can be used to measure level of conductive or nonconductive liquids in metal tanks.

In non-metallic tanks, a ground reference electrode must be used, or refer to our model LTX60.

The LTX50 works on the RF principle and monitors level change by converting movement of media up or down the probe into pulse wave form which is proportional to changes in level.

The amplifier converts this pulse wave into a 4-20 mA output signal. The LTX50 comes complete with housing/fitting, probe, cable or connector and DIN rail remote transmitter.

Signal electronics are protected and potted within a metal fitting.

The connection between the sensor and the remote transmitter is made via a 3-conductor cable which can be up to a 1,000 feet (300 meters) long.

The calibration is accomplished via four push buttons, located on transmitter.
