SafeSonic™ 25-L Level Transmitter - Loop Powered Sensor for Class I Division 1 Hazardous Areas

Senix announces the Senix SafeSonic ultrasonic level transmitter which is suited for intrinsically safe (IS) and CSA rated for Class I Division 1 hazardous areas in the US and Canada. It has a maximum range of 25 feet (7.62 meters) and is typically used for tank level measurement but can also be used for other hazardous area applications such as measuring the roll diameter on coating machinery. The transmitter sensing element is chemically resistant, and the electrical connection is a two-wire loop-powered 4-20 mA output. The SafeSonic 25-L is pre-calibrated from 1 and 25 feet but can be user-calibrated to other ranges using optional accessories.

Features

  • Intrinsically safe design
  • Two-wire, 4-20 mA current loop powered
  • Top or bottom NPT mounting threads
  • Chemically resistant PVDF lower body
  • Potted for wet and dirty applications
  • Ruggedized piezoelectric ultrasonic transducer
  • UV resistant, potted-in cable or 4-pin M12 connector

Benefits

  • Certified for hazardous environments in US & Canada
  • Can be used to measure many liquid chemicals
  • Non-contact measurement
  • Reliable operation in wet and dirty environments
  • Low energy and low wiring cost
  • Simple mounting with standard threads

SenixSAFE-L Software

  • 4-20 mA range calibration
  • Output proportional to distance, level or volume
  • 7-point linearization
  • Temperature compensation on/off (default is on)
  • Update rate
  • No target response

Applications

This transmitter is used primarily for liquid level measurement of vessels in hazardous areas. It also measures open-air distance to target objects such as the roll diameter on a coating machine.

This transmitter should be used only in applications with relatively slow-moving targets.

Example Applications

  • Industrial liquid tank level
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Paint finishing
  • Coating machinery
  • Service stations
  • Laboratories
  • Airports
  • Welding bays

SafeSonic ultrasonic level transmitters for hazardous environments can be configured to provide volume outputs for non-linear tank shapes or flow outputs for flumes and weirs. If you need sensor capabilities not listed here please contact us.
