News Brief: Unmatched Durability,
While Truly Failsafe!

Monitor Technologies’ SafePoint® Rotary Paddle Level Indicator is a “TRUE” failsafe point level indicator that provides economic and reliable point level measurement for dry bulk materials stored in bins, hoppers, silos and tanks.

SafePoint® utilizes Monitor’s patented magnetic sensor technology to continuously detect both material presence and operational status. SafePoint electronics include a FailSafe LEDmicrocontroller that monitors shaft and motor mounting plate rotation, and that performs self-diagnostics for reliable and consistent operation. Separate outputs are available for material sense and fault conditions, making SafePoint a “truly” fail-safe device.

SafePoint® automatically shuts off the drive motor when the paddle is in a stalled condition

SafePoint® also has a unique housing design with a twist on/off cover for easy access, and two conduit entrances for easy wiring. Versions are available for installation in ordinary or hazardous locations. There is even a SafePoint option for high temperature service (up to 750o F/300o C).

A wide range of features, options and accessories provide unmatched versatility for the SafePoint® Rotary Paddle Level Indicator to make it compatible with a host of applications, for a variety of industries.
