Dry Material Rotary Paddle Level Switch LVD-803 / LVD-804
The LVD-800 Series fail-safe bin monitor is the state-of-the-art in rotary paddle technology. Utilizing magnetic sensing technology and a unique housing design, the LVD-800 Series fail-safe bin monitor is the most reliable, technician-friendly, rugged and economical truly fail-safe rotary paddle point level control sensor of its kind. The LVD-800 Series fail-safe bin monitor provides the ultimate in performance wherever critical continuous operation must be ensured. Detection of both material presence and its own operational status is performed on a continuous basis. The LVD-800 Series fail-safe level sensor monitors its electrical and mechanical operating condition. This, in conjunction with separate outputs provided for material sense and unit status (fault conditions) makes this unit a "truly" fail-safe device. While the LVD-800 Series fail-safe bin monitor is an evolution in rotary paddle technology, it continues to use tried-and-true operating techniques. Unlike many other available units, the LVD-800 Series incorporates a feature that automatically shuts off its motor when the paddle is in a stalled condition. This extends the life of the unit and minimizes maintenance. Principle of Operation The operation of the LVD-800 Series rotary paddle fail-safe bin monitor uses magnetic sensing technology to detect both material presence and operational status of the unit. This method is simple and more reliable than that used by other manufacturers. The unit is installed through the wall of the vessel so that the paddle protrudes inside the vessel. A small electric motor drives the paddle, which rotates freely in the absence of material.
