American Sensor Technologies (AST) has launched the AST45PT liquid level sensor that is ideal for measuring hydrostatic level and temperature.
The AST45PT offers two independent 4-20 mA output signals separately for a temperature signal and a level signal. This single instrument installation will ensure users with both cost- and time- conservation. Submersible cable is an expensive option for meeting deeper level requirements, while a single measurement point serves as a cost-effective solution.
Besides being affordable, AST45PT has been packed with significant and convenient features. The measurement ranges of AST45PT start from 1 PSI (27.68” water column) to 100 PSI (230.67’ water column), and therefore can be effectively used for a broad range of applications. AST provides eight cable length options and five temperature ranges for simple yet efficient integration.
A removable nose cone is available for each AST45PT. When installed on the sensor, the sensing element will be safe during submersion. Additionally, users can remove it to reach the ¼-in NPT male pressure port. The AST45PT will be the best solution of choice for customers who wish to take pressure measurement externally from a tank in situations like a flood prone area. In addition, the sensor is also designed with a ½-in NPT conduit fitting at the electrical connection. Conduit installation can be done over the cable for promoting rigidity in turbulent tanks or to provide safety from sharp objects.
