The standard VR-21 vibrating rod level sensor and solid extended VR-41 vibrating rod level sensors are now approved in the U.S. and Canada to CSA standards for Class II, Division 1, Groups E, F, and G, and Class III for hazardous locations. Enclosure type certifications for these models includes NEMA 4X, 5, and 12. This vibrating level switch is used to detect high, mid, and/or low levels in bins, silos, and hoppers containing powders or dry bulk sold materials. The single-rod probe design features a sword-shaped probe that resists bridging of material that can occur with tuning fork designs. Its piezoelectric driven vibrating rod is driven with low energy, so it won’t “dig a hole” and cause a false alarm. It features three sensitivity settings and can reliably detect very light materials with bulk densities down to 1.25 lb/cu ft.
