Gettorf – EGE’s MFP line of sensors for safe and precise fill level detection now also features models with a special coating which ensures that no metal parts come into contact with the medium. This increases the units’ application range: in addition to oil, water, emulsions, and bulk solids, they can now also reliably monitor highly corrosive media. Based on the guided pulse radar principle, they operate reliably regardless of foaming, medium density, temperature, and pressure, providing a ±5 mm accuracy for all media. The compact sensors are suitable for limited installation space. They provide IP 67 protection and have a -50...+80 °C measuring range.. Available with a single probe, parallel probes or a coaxial probe, the systems can be optimally adapted to the requirements of liquid and solid media. They can be equipped with two PNP switching outputs or with an analog 4…20 mA current output. By means of a ¾ʺ thread, the sensors are fitted into containers from above. The maximum standard sensor length is 80 cm. On request, EGE also delivers special lengths. The sensor housing, which is rotatable by 360°, includes an LC display with a control panel for easy sensor adjustment. Additionally, a model without a display is available for cost-sensitive applications.
