Universal AC/DC Power Supply and Time Delay

August 20, 2014

The SRP rotary paddle type point level sensor offers state-of-the-art features, including a universal 20-250 VAC/VDC power supply and an adjustable time delay for its relay outputs. The universal power supply means you only need a single device even if you require AC and DC versions or a broad range of voltages, such as 24VAC, 24VDC, 115VAC, and 230VAC. No matter what the voltage, the SRP with universal power supply unit will handle it. In addition, the SRP universal power supply version uses an AC drive motor rather than the DC motors used by other brands. This means the unit will last longer than units using DC brush-type drive motors that have a limited lifespan. The adjustable time delay provides a 0-12-second adjustment to eliminate nuisance alarms due to shifting and surging materials. These advanced features are typically found only on more expensive technologies and units.

In addition, the SRP rotary paddle bin level indicator has an easily adjusted sensitivity (no disassembly required), a fail-safe output on power failure, local LED indication with an extra-large lens, and pluggable terminal blocks for ease of wiring.
