|LIQUID LEVEL COMPUTERS
Levelcom LC-100 line of liquid level computers advance continuous flow bubbler level measurement technology. It features automated operating cycles, allowing programming of the timing of sample, purge and bubble cycles from 15 seconds to 24 hours. Specific-gravity input, four alarm setpoints, analog or digital outputs, three power options and Modbus or Profibus connectivity are standard.
FlexSwitch FLT93S flow, level, temperature switch provides accurate interface detection and control. It performs monitoring, controlling and alarming of flow rates or levels of foams, emulsion layers, liquids and slurries. Dual 6A relay outputs are standard and are assignable to flow, level or temperature. It operates over a wide setpoint range in water from 0.003 mps to 0.9 mps.

|ISA100.11a-READY WIRELESS RADAR GAUGE
FlexLine wireless radar gauge captures an array of tank measurements and transmits them via OneWireless network to control rooms. It also tracks temperature, pressure, water and overfill, reducing installation costs and increasing flexibility by enabling new measurements without additional wiring. It has been approved by the Dutch Weight and Measurement Authority.
|VIBRATORY LEVEL SWITCHES
Sitrans LVL100 and LVL200 vibratory switches signal when the level of liquid media is sufficiently high, liquid media is required or needs to be refilled. They are used in storage and process applications, and can be connected to any signaling systems. Both switches are equipped with a special, extremely reliable piezo actuator and are also suitable for high temperatures.
|WEB-ENABLED, ULTRA-SONIC SENSORS
LOE web-enabled ultrasonic level sensors feature Power over Ethernet (POE) for easy wiring and can be easily programmed and configured remotely—without configuration software—via APG’s website and locally via the sensor’s embedded web page. Sensor level data is transmitted to a dedicated website that uses an open-source MySQL database format

|ONLINE DENSITY MEASUREMENT
Liquiphant M density meter provides analytical process information on-line or in-line according to customer requirements. It offers solutions for applications including process optimization, quality monitoring and waste reduction. It can also be used for monitoring of preliminary, interim and final products during blending operations and for verification and documentation of process steps.
|SIL-CERTIFIED LEVEL SWITCH
Developed for above-ground bulk storage facilities, the Safety IntelliPoint RF switch meets the American Petroleum Institute’s 2350 Recommended Practice (RP) for overfill and spill protection. It provides overfill protection to SIL 1. SIL 2 certification is optional. With a redundant switch, a SIL 3 rating can be achieved. It is FM-, CSA- and ATEX-approved.
|RADAR LEVEL TRANSMITTER
The non-contact radar level transmitter Type 8136 measures open-channel flow and tank levels of solids and liquids with dielectric values as low as 1.6. It is available in two antenna versions—with encapsulated horn for liquids in small vessels or plastic horn for larger vessels or open flumes. It has a measuring range of 0 ft -65 ft for continuous level measurement of toxic and corrosive substances.
|SENSITIVE LIQUID LEVEL/TEMP CONTROL BOARD
LASC-RTD/THM series combination liquid level and temperature control board offers microprocessor-based auto-sensitivity. It prevents faulty operation of the control relay caused by too much or too little sensitivity. Using three push buttons and the on-board digital display, the user can program on/off liquid level and temperature control with 1° resolution.
Lumenite Control Technology
|FIELDBUS-ENABLED LEVEL TRANSMITTER
Level Plus model MG liquid-level transmitter with Foundation fieldbus protocol satisfies the demand for a digital communication interface in the liquid-level marketplace for vessels from 508 mm (20 in.) to 22,000 mm (866 in.). Outputs include Modbus, DDA (proprietary ASCII protocol) and Foundation fieldbus. MG is accurate to at least 1/16 in. at maximum length.

|ROBUST LEVEL TRANSMITTER
ES2 Slimline level transmitter boasts robust design to protect against environmental conditions such as extreme washdown practices, aggressive cleaning solutions and extreme humidity. The internal electronics are fully encapsulated. The signal connection is a hermetically sealed receptacle designed to accept an M12 connector. Made of stainless steel, it has excellent thermal recovery.
|SIL-2 MAGNETOSTRICTIVE LEVEL TRANSMITTERS
AccuTrak AT100 and AT200 magnetostrictive liquid level transmitters are certified for SIL 2 environments. They feature modular, dual-compartment designs that separately house the wiring and electronics. They can measure clean or dirty fluids and total level, interface level or multiple levels from the same sensor. They make accurate measurements up to 3000 psi (207 bar) or 800 °F (427 °C).
|SOLIDS RADAR LEVEL METER
Optiwave 6300 C is a contactless two-wire 24-26 GHz radar FMCW meter for distance, level and volume measurement of powders, granulates and other solids. Thanks to continuous wave generation and small radar beam angle, no antenna aiming is required. It has an innovative drop antenna made of plain PP or PTFE that makes purging systems obsolete, and it is maintenance-free.
|MAINTENANCE-FREE LEVEL SENSING
LVL-B Series vibration limit switches are insensitive to material build-up, external vibration and flow noise, and have no mechanical moving parts for reliable, maintenance-free level sensing of bulk solids materials.

|ECONOMICAL RADAR TRANSMITTER
Model R82 is the first $995 radar transmitter. This loop-powered, non-contact, 26-GHz, transmitter brings radar to everyday applications. It measures up to a 40-ft (12-meter) range, and provides unsurpassed ease of configuration with either the menu-driven, four-pushbutton, two-line by 16-character display, HART digital communications or PACTware, allowing complete configuration via the local user interface, or remotely.
|FAN-LESS INDUSTRIAL PCs
The ePC Fan-less Series of industrial computers have the reliability of a proprietary operator interface, and yet provide the performance and open connectivity available from a computer. They are available in four sizes: 15 in., 17 in., 19 in. and a newly released 12.1 in. All have five-wire analog resistive touchscreens and NEMA-sealed, panel-mount front panels. Their ultra-thin size make them ideal for installation in harsh environments and small spaces.
|GAS PRESSURE TEST KIT
Series LPTK gas pressure test kit is ideal for testing LP and natural gas lines and controls. The kit’s gage shows if proper pressure is present or if a leak exists. It is available in two different gage ranges, and each gage is 3% full-scale accurate with an easy-to-use calibration screw on the back of the gage. It is easier to use than a manometer and includes a sturdy case for added durability and safe handling.
