Many point level sensor applications require top mounting on a bin while the sensing point is from several to more than 20 ft from the top of the bin mounting point, which is why the Model AP/APX line of RF admittance point level sensors includes a rugged and flexible cable extended probe version. This flexible extended length version of the Model AP/APX RF admittance point level sensor uses a rugged 1/8-in.-diam stainless steel cable. To aid in the shedding of material from the cable, a Teflon coating has been added, which has an extremely low coefficient of friction. The cable exceeds 1500 lb of tensile strength and can be provided in lengths typically up to 25 ft or more. Model AP/APX cable extended RF admittance point level sensors can withstand internal bin temperatures up to a maximum of 302ºF, with a maximum internal bin pressure of 284psi (20bar).
