Gems Sensors and Controls is launching the XT-1000 magnetostrictive level sensors. The new range has been designed for use in a broad spectrum of OEM and end-user applications, providing continuous operation with extremely high precision and reliability.
The XT-1000 magnetostrictive level sensors are robust, stainless steel devices offering highly accurate continuous level measurement in lengths from 20cm to over 4m. XT-1000 level sensors measure liquid media levels using the complete probe length and are largely unaffected by temperature. The sensor offer constant sensing of fluid level, regardless of the physical state of the media, coping with bubbles, foam, condensation, precipitation, pressure, temperature or changes in density.
Magnetostriction is an excellent measurement technology for applications requiring extremely accurate indication, such as in the chemical and water treatment industries. The 4-20mA sensor is compatible with a variety of tank dimensions and is also available as an explosion-proof version for installation in potentially explosive atmospheres where electrical equipment of category 1 (zone 0) or category 1/2 (zone 0/1) are required. Also available with the digital Hart protocol operating system, the sensor is able to output the position of the first, second or both floats.
Kevin Castonguay, Product Marketing Manager for Gems Sensors and Controls, states: "The XT-1000 increases the breadth of the Gems continuous level product line with a highly accurate magnetostrictive technology solutio. The high-resolution sensor is a robust solution for a wide variety of OEM and end-user applications such as chemicals and petrochemicals, biotech and pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering, water treatment, beverage, food processing and underground storage tanks for leak detection."
