OPTIBAR LC 1010: New Submersible Level Probe with Ceramic Diaphragm
Duisburg, Germany: KROHNE introduces the OPTIBAR LC 1010 submersible level probe with ceramic diaphragm. Aimed at water and wastewater, environmental engineering and OEM applications, it provides a simple and continuous hydrostatic level measurement solution for water wells, rainwater retaining / overflow basins, or tanks.
· Continuous hydrostatic level measurement in water wells, rainwater basins, or tanks
· Robust stainless steel housing and high overload-proof ceramic diaphragm for long operating life
· Measuring ranges from 100 mbar / 10 kPa / 1.5 psi to up 10 bar / 1 MPa / 150 psi
· Corrosion-resistant TPE cable for versatile use from water to wastewater applications
OPTIBAR LC 1010 features a robust 316L stainless steel housing and a high overload-proof ceramic diaphragm for long operating life. For safe and easy cleaning on site, the diaphragm is flush mounted. With a diameter of 22 mm / 1″, OPTIBAR LC 1010 can be used also in small vessels. It comes with pre-configured measuring ranges from 100 mbar / 10 kPa / 1.5 psi to up 10 bar / 1 MPa / 150 psi, customer-specific ranges are available on request.
For versatile use from water to wastewater applications, OPTIBAR LC 1010 features ATEX and IECEx certification and a corrosion-resistant TPE cable that is also approved for use with potable water. Next to the electrical lines for the 4…20mA output, the TPE cable houses an air hose to be used for differential pressure level measurement with closed vessels. With open vessels, the air hose can be capped for absolute pressure measurement. As options, OPTIBAR LC 1010 can be provided with an integrated 3-wire Pt100 temperature sensor, alternatively with HART 7 communication for convenient configuration.
