Point level in hazardous areas - ATEX 3D/3G level sensor from ifm electronic

15 May 2017

The latest versions of ifm electronic’s remarkable LMT point-level sensor can work reliably even where there is a danger of explosion. 

The food-grade LMT, with its high-quality housing materials such as high-grade stainless steel (316L) and PEEK not only meets all requirements for hygienic areas but the new versions are also ideal for storage silos or tanks where potentially explosive materials are stored and are classified Zone 2 or Zone 22.

As a matter of course the LMT ATEX versions are equipped with IO-Link technology, allowing Industry 4.0 efficiencies to be achieved. The IO-Link also means that settings can be stored and changed remotely. 

Whatever the medium, even viscous, sticky liquids or powders, the LMT is the perfect level sensor for the job.  The three available probe lengths can be installed simply and are not prone to the problems associated with tuning forks. 

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.
