- Model MTLT-5000 - Magnetostrictive / Reed Switch Transmitter



The MTLT-5000 is based upon the magnetostrictive principle. The sensing tube contains a wire which is pulsed at fixed time intervals. The interaction of the current pulse with the magnetic field created by the magnetic float causes a torsion stress wave to be induced in the wire. This torsion propagates along the wire at a known velocity, from the position of the magnetic float and toward both ends of the wire. A patented piezo-magnetic sensing element placed in the transmitter assembly converts the received mechanical torsion into an electrical return pulse. The microprocessor-based electronics measures the elapsed time between the start and return pulses and converts it into a 4-20 mA DC output which is proportional to the level being measured.

  • The Non-Contact design ensures no wear to the sensing element, thus requiring no maintenance or recalibration

The Sensor is a network of Reed Switches and resistors contained in a heavy wall stainless steel pipe. The sensor is mounted parallel with the Chamber. As the float rises or falls it is closing Reed Switches therefore changing the resistance proportionally to the level. The Transmitter takes the change in resistance from the Sensor, conditions it and transmits a 4-20 mA 2-wire signal. The Transmitter is field rangeable to provide a full scale output over any portion of the span.
