Turck has introduced PT4500 and PT4510 submersible pressure transmitters which, according to the company, are optimised for detecting the level of water or other media with similar density in challenging industrial environments.
Turck’s PT4510 submersible pressure transmitter was designed for low-level applications of up to 400 inches, while the PT4500 is available in ranges up to 100 psig
To deliver accurate level detection, a transmitter is placed at the bottom of the tank holding the liquid, and the transmitter then converts the pressure reading to an analogue 4-20 mA output signal.
The electrical connection to the transmitter is routed through the top of the tank and contains power and signal wires.
The transmitters carry UL/cUL 913 approval for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D locations when installed with an approved barrier, Turck said.
