Detachable level probes with integrated lightning protection
An intelligent device concept protects the level measurement technology in the event of overvoltage events and simplifies the service involved.
Thierstein, Deutschland -- Thierstein – Hydrostatic level probes are essential for managing and controlling environmental equipment such as weir and sluice systems. In the event of a lightning strike, shifts or increases in potential directly affect the measurement devices, which means that protecting these components is especially important. If certain overvoltage events result in plant downtimes nevertheless, the next step is to keep the maintenance effort as low as possible. For both scenarios, BD|SENSORS has a well-conceived solution which draws on an established device concept, consisting of overvoltage protection combined with a simple and time-saving replacement option.
The detachable level probe LMK 808 with a robust, capacitive ceramic sensor and a pressure tightness of up to 20bar is one example of this. It also has two-stage overvoltage protection which protects the sensor signal and signal pr
