New Submersible Level Sensors Offer Unique Removable and Reusable Cage for Significant Savings in Harsh Environments
LOGAN, UT - Automation Products Group, Inc. introduces the PT-500 Submersible Liquid Level/Pressure Transmitters. The PT-500 features a vented, watertight cable and delivers a high precision 4-20mA solid-state signal while submerged up to 450 ft. A unique (patent pending) removable stainless steel cage connects to the sensor with a simple snap ring and enables users to save significantly on sensor replacement costs.
'The stainless steel cage is a fairly expensive piece of hardware that typically cannot be removed from the sensor, or reused. Historically that has meant that each time a sensor needed to be replaced in the field so did the cage at an added cost of $200 or so,' says Karl Reid, Engineering Manager. 'Because these types of sensors are used in some nasty environments they tend be replaced on a fairly regular basis, so being able to reuse the cage can deliver exponential savings over a period time,' he says.
Rugged IP68 protected PT-500 transmitters are individually tested to deliver accuracy of 0.50% of span, and are temperature compensated to ensure accuracy and long-term stability under extreme temperature variations. Simple-to-install surface mount technology provides added protection from shock and vibration. As a result, they are an ideal solution for sewage lift stations, tank liquid level measurement, water and wastewater, well depth measurement and environmental water depth measurement.
