The Deeter LVCS-FP is a magnetic float on a reed switch or Hall Effect sensor stem for control and indication of a liquid level while in a potentially explosive atmosphere.
- Standard lengths or custom length sensor stems up to 6 Metres.
- Stainless steel 316L housing and wetted components.
- ATEX and IECEx approved.
- Suitable for gas and dust environments.
- IP68 Ingress protection.
- Reed switch or Hall Effect sensing technology.
- Voltage and current loop analogue output.
- Programmable set point triggers.
- M20 and ½”NPT cable connections.
- Custom mounting options available.
- Narrow sensor stem and mounting for tanks without internal access.
- Suitable for high liquid temperatures.
- Can be specified for liquid temperatures down to -55°C
The LVCS-FP holds ATEX & IECEx Ex d certification for use in most regions worldwide.
