Practical Tech Tip

Using RF Capacitance Bin Level Sensors in Demanding / Dynamic Material Flow Conditions
TrueCap RF Capacitance Level Sensor 
RF Capacitance Bin
Level Sensor With
Cable Probe Extension
Using a cable extension probe on an RF capacitance level
indicator can provide greater "flex" as compared to a solid probe for demanding applications involving dynamic material flow and storage conditions.

A cable extension probe will also extend the sensing point to as much as 50 feet (15m) beneath the mounting point. (Unit must be vertically [top] mounted on vessel.)

In powders and bulk solids, it is usually recommended for best operation to allow material to cover 8-12 inches of the cable extension device.

Monitor's TrueCap® RF Capacitance Sensors Feature:

Top Mounted TrueCap® With Cable Extension
> Superior 0.5pF Sensitivity
> Temperature Compensation
> Driven Shield Technology Overcomes Material Build-up
> Externally Viewable LED Sensor Status Indicator (Ordinary Loc. Unit)
> Hazardous Location Approvals for Gases and Dust Available
> Optional Split Architecture Model for High Temperatures or High Vibration
> Simple, Convenient Push-Button Calibration and Test (on MK-2 version)
> Maximized Reliability via Smart Sensing Algorithms Including "Self-Validating" Fail-Safe Protection (on MK-2 version)
