Gems Sensors & Controls, a leading provider of pressure, liquid level and flow sensors, fluidic systems and miniature solenoid valves, has introduced the XT-1000 series of magnetostrictive continuous level sensors for end user and OEM applications.
The XT-1000 series provides a range of sensors, which are robust and made from stainless steel. They are capable of taking highly precise continuous level measurements for lengths ranging from 8” to 13 ft. The sensor measures liquid media levels, making use of a complete probe length and remains impervious to temperature. Constant fluid level can be sensed, irrespective of the physical state of media such as foam, bubbles, precipitation, condensation, temperature, pressure or changes in density levels.
The magnetostriction is suitable for applications that need highly precise indications such as water treatment and chemical industries. The 4-20 mA sensor can be used with different tank dimensions and gives an explosion proof version for deployment in explosive environments where Category 1 (Zone0) or Category_(Zone0/1) electrical equipment are essential. The sensor also comes along with the digital Hart protocol operating system and is capable of giving the position of both the floats simultaneously or individually.
According to Kevin Castonguay, who is the Product Manager for Gems Sensors & Controls, the XT-1000 is a great addition to the Gems line of products with its extremely accurate magnetostrictive technology solution. The sensor can be used in a wide range of applications in various industries such as food processing, beverages, water treatment, mechanical engineering, pharmaceuticals, biotech, petrochemicals and chemicals and also in underground storage tanks for detecting leaks.
