Flow Level Pressure
A Simple Combination of Point Level Measurement and Communication Technology
Apr 21 2008 Read 970 Times
The Gladiator Smart Admittance Level Switch is designed to detect the level of liquid, slurry or powder in a tank or vessel. 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. The Gladiator can monitor materials with a wide range of dielectric constants, so the system is applicable to a large variety of liquids, slurries and powders.
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.
The Gladiator communicates using Modbus, HART, or Profibus protocols. A remote amplifier can be positioned up to 500 m (1640 Ft) away from the unit. The HawkLink GSM/CDMA communication option allows a technician to commission, calibrate, test, or check the output of the unit from anywhere in the world.
Gladiator Switches are suitable for wide variety of production situations. For example, the instrument can monitor liquids applications in the petrochemical, food and beverage, and water and wastewater industries. The Gladiator can also monitor levels of dry powdered material for industries including cement, glass, pharmaceutical, mining and minerals, power generation and fertilizer.
