Pointek CLS300 (digital version) is an inverse frequency shift capacitance level switch with optional rod/cable choices and configurable output. It is ideal for detecting liquids, solids, slurries, foam and interfaces in demanding conditions where high pressure and temperatures are present. The digital version includes PROFIBUS PA, an LCD display, and advanced diagnostic features.
Patented Active-Shield technology so measurement is unaffected by material buildup or nozzle interference in active shield section
Performs in extremely abrasive conditions because of solid rod construction
Push-button calibration, full-function diagnostics
High sensitivity allows installation in a wide range of liquids, solids or slurry applications
Integral LCD display allows for easy menu-driven setup
PROFIBUS PA communication (SIMATIC PDM compatible)
Pointek CLS300 digital version provides an integral LCD display for stand-alone use, with PROFIBUS PA communication (Profile version 3.0, Class B) when required. Solid-state switch alarm is standard.
The robust design of CLS300 makes it specifically applicable for heavy solids applications where abrasive materials occur as in the mining industry.
The fully potted electronics are unaffected by condensation, dust or vibration.
Wetted parts are made of stainless steel with a PFA shield for high chemical resistance, and of ceramic and stainless steel for high temperature version. Materials with low or high dielectric constants can be accurately detected. The unique Active Shield suppresses interference from material buildup or long installation nozzles.
The unique modular design of the Pointek CLS300 provides a wide range of configurations, process connections, extensions and approvals to meet the temperature and pressure requirements of specific applications. The modular design makes ordering easier and reduces stocking requirements. A wide range of probe configurations are available, including rod and cable versions.
Key Applications: liquids, slurries, bulk solids, relatively high pressure and temperature, hazardous areas, milling and mining applications
