LTX10 Sanitary Capacitance Level Transmitter

Brand: Intempco Controls, Inc.

The INTEMPCO LTX10 Sanitary series are highly reliable and microprocessor based RF level sensors designed to measure tank levels of conductive and non-conductive liquids in metal tanks.

LTX10 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.

LTX10 sensors use very high frequency and very low amplitude sensing circuitry to greatly minimize the effects of coating on the sensing probe.

The LTX10 includes a standard 4-20 mA loop-powered LTX transmitter housed in a rugged enclosure, a 1/2" (12.7 mm) diameter rigid probe for ranges up to 20 feet (6.09 meters) and a polished stainless Tri-Clamp.

Probe material is SS316, supplied bare or PFA jacketed. The LTX10 is designed for tanks which have available Tri-Clamp connection.
