All About Electronic Level Sensors

Level sensors are devices that are used for fluid-control systems to measure the levels of the container or tank. They are able to determine the level of various types of free-flowing media, such as powdered solids, liquids, and granular solids. They transmit an electrical signal that communicates when control valves need to be open or shut.

Based on the particular level sensor, it could be an output that is proportional to the level or an output program that can be delivered at a pre-determined threshold or value. Electronic level sensors play a crucial function in fluid control systems. Electronic level sensors track filling levels of liquids and bulk materials within silos, tanks, and containers. 

Even the most critical conditions in a process like emptying tanks with hydraulics or spills that are not intended to be spilled from tanks are monitored by level sensors. The crystal fountains product line includes devices for continuous level measurement as well as the detection of levels at a point. 

Based on the purpose various measurement methods like guided wave radar, and capacitive or hydrostatic level measurement are available. For non-contact level detection photoelectric distance sensors, as well as 3D camera systems, are utilized. The buildup of wear and tear can result in failures, especially when mechanical switches come into proximity to the media. 

Electronic crystal fountains sensors can be used without mechanical components or floating components. This makes them extremely durable and solid. Additional benefits of electronic sensors include the indication of the local level and simple switch point setting by pushing buttons.
