Hot Stuff for the Automation Market | products & resources INTECH JULY/AUGUST 2018 47 Rotary paddle bin level indicator The SE3 series rotary pad- dle bin level indicator is for point-level switch ap- plications of bulk solids, including powder and granular materials. This rotary paddle unit has a powder-coated alumi- num enclosure rated IP65 and NEMA 4X and available local LED indi- cation. The SE3 compact ro tary paddle unit is available in a variety of configurations, including standard, high temperature, and reinforced shaft extended versions to handle applications in many industries. All units are available with a choice of power supplies, including 110 VAC, 220 VAC, 240 VAC, 24 VAC, and 24 VDC. Paddle options include polycarbonate and stainless-steel paddles. All units include a prewired electrical cable. Standard length is 11.8 in (300 mm), and it can be provided in lengths up to 16.4 ft (5 m). The SE3 compact ro- tary paddle bin level indicator is suitable for small hoppers and bins. Aplus Finetek Level switches The LBFH and LBFI level switches with IO-Link and ATEX approval have IO- Link interface, so the user can automate the config- uration of sensors. ATEX also enables the use of commercially available barriers. The sensors are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications. Because of the IO-Link integration, the level switches are Industry 4.0 ready. With the communication interface, each application can be configured using standard network components. This ensures duplication of the system and device replacement without additional programming. Diagnostic data can be called up and evaluated at any time. The LBFH and LBFI level switches meet the criteria for ATEX cat- egories 1 and 2 for gas and dust. The reduced current consumption of their electronics means that standard barriers can now be used in addition to the company's barriers, helping them integrate into existing plants. Two switching outputs make it possible to set independent trig- ger thresholds. This means two different process steps, such as pro- duction and cleaning, or two media groups, such as water and oil, can be monitored with one sensor. Additionally, the two switching outputs facilitate a plausibility check of the sensor. A complementary trigger point setting ensures wire breaks are reliably detected, thus guaranteeing effective monitoring of all programs. Both variants are suitable for use in temperatures up to 135°C, while the variant for hygiene applications also has SIP capabilities. Baumer Level transmitters The K-TEK LMT series of mag- netostrictive level transmitters increases the ease of use, safety, and reliability of the AT series of transmitters. The LMT has a two- wire common transmitter, an in- tegrated setup menu, advanced diagnostics with waveform dis- play, and signal conditioning. The LMT is available as an insertion style "wetted" trans- mitter (LMT100) with probe lengths up to 22.86 m (75 ft) in length, or as an externally mounted, nonintrusive version (LMT200) for use with the KM26 magnetic level gauge or any other float and level chamber. The LMT200 externally mounted transmitters provide us- ers with installation flexibility and modification. They can be changed from top to bottom mount or from left of chamber orientation to right with no modification of equipment required. The first phase of the LMT series comes with 4–20 mA HART output. Later phases will be available with FOUNDATION Field- bus and Profibus PA. ABB NEW! From ISA Publishing Order your copy today at Today's process plants are capable of large-scale destruction.
