Level Sensor Detects Ultra-Low Density Materials

Aplus Finetek Sensor SC35 series vibrating fork point level sensor

Aplus Finetek Sensor Inc. announces the availability of its latest product, the SC35 series vibrating fork point level sensor that uses ultra-low density detection technology.  

The SC35 series uses piezoelectric crystal and electronic technology to design and manufacture a point level sensor that does not require any calibration and can detect solids with a density as low as 0.624 lb/cu ft.

The SC35 series can be used to detect the presence and absence of bulk solid material over a very wide range of material densities. Other features of the SC35 series vibrating fork point level sensor include self-diagnostics of problems, including material build-up and abrasion to the primary sensing element, a small compact housing, a universal
19-253VAC/VDC power supply, and the availability of standard, pipe extended, high-temperature, and cable extended probe versions.

When the probe element is covered or in contact with the target material the vibration is dampened, the electronic feedback changes, and presence of the material is thereby sensed by the electronics, which changes the state of the sensor output to indicate material presence. When the probe element is again free of the target material the vibration again is produced, the output state reverts to indicate material absence.
