Continuous level measurement in harsh environments

20 March 2017

Guided-wave level sensor from ifm electronic has extended functions: The latest guided-wave level sensor from ifm electronic is designed for hard work. Suitable for medium temperature up to 100°C and in confined spaces the LR2050 will detect all manner of substances, with a coaxial pipe available for detection of oils. 

Over a dozen probes of different lengths, between 15 cm and 200 cm, can be attached to the LR, which will automatically adjust to these different rods. The probes can even be cut down if required. 

Setting the LR is simple, and can even be done before installation. Sensor parameters are accessible using the pushbuttons on the device, or remotely over IO-Link.  The LR even includes a simulation function to facilitate testing. 

Standard output functions available are two programmable switched outputs, or one switched output and one scalable analogue (4...20 mA). Alternatively, the true value can be transmitted over IO-Link. 

ifm is committed to working closely with its customers to develop products which precisely match their needs, and the company provides expert, readily accessible technical support to help users maximise the benefits they gain from ifm products.
