RF Capacitance Point Level Indicators
4B Components Ltd., a worldwide manufacturer of material handling and electronic components, has designed an extended power shield for the Auto-Set series of RF capacitance point level indicators for use with bulk granular solids, powders and liquids. The power shield creates a barrier and enables the unit to ignore material built up on the probe, preventing false readings. The Auto-Set™ is now available in three standard power shield lengths of 4, 12 and 16 inches. With the longer power shields, installation through thick concrete silos is easier since only a 1-inch diameter hole is needed for probe insertion. The Auto-Set also provides the user with visual indication of the set values, which allows for simpler on site adjustment and set up via a push button membrane and large LED display. The Auto-Set can be side or top mounted and uses stainless steel probes up to 33 feet long. For high temperature or vibration applications, a remote version is also available. The Autoset series of level indicators are CSA Class II, Division 1 approved.
