4B Components Ltd has released a second generation capacitance point level indicator. The Binswitch Elite detects level or plug situations for bulk granular solids in tanks, bins, or silos, and can be used as a plug/choke detector in chutes, conveyors, and elevator legs. This new model has a user-selectable relay output that can be magnetically calibrated to be normally energized or de-energized. During calibration the sensor automatically compensates for potential dust build up. The Binswitch Elite also has improved shielding to protect against electrical interference, common with variable frequency drives, RF antennas, and EMI sources. The sensor is fully encapsulated in a 30-mm-diam polycarbonate body that is corrosion and abrasion resistant, dust-tight, and waterproof. The Binswitch Elite is CSA class II division 1 groups E, F, and G approved, and IP65 rated for hazardous dust environments.
