Hawk Measurement has introduced the Gladiator Admittance Smart Switch Series, a state-of-the-art level probe designed to operate in tough industrial environments. It is designed to detect the level of slurries, powders, or solids in a tank or vessel. The unit is suitable for a broad range of products and dielectric constants and can operate at temperatures of up to 842°F. The unit measures the capacitance or “admittance” between a probe and the wall of the container. As the level of the product rises to the level of the probe, or drops below that level, the capacitance measured at the probe changes. The Gladiator detects this change and produces an output. Hawk has designed the unit to operate in tough industrial environments. It is simple to set up and calibrate, and has excellent temperature stability. Several probe types are available to meet specific application requirements and all types are resistant to product build-up. It communicates using Modbus, HART, or Profibus protocols.
