Point level detection has never been so easy and reliable thanks to Baumer’s new CleverLevel switch, the PL20.
CleverLevel reliably detects every type of medium, whether liquid, pasty, viscous, or solid, and is therefore the solution for a variety of applications for which standard vibrating forks are used today.
One of its major advantages is the fact that it does not have to be parameterised to a medium as before, but flexibly adapts to the medium at hand. This way, even adhesions such as those that frequently occur with pasty materials can be reliably masked. With its optional 4-20 mA analogue signal, the PL20 offers additional advantages and true added value for increased efficiency of your production process.
The food and beverage production sector is distinguished by increasingly individual customer requirements. Conventional measurement systems are unable to cope with the different media characteristics involved.
The new level switch CleverLevel PL20 makes processes more flexible and eliminates additional efforts – because it no longer matters what is in the tank. The PL20 level switch offers true added value, especially when it comes to applications in the food production sector with changing recipes or batch production.
The self-learning sensor automatically adjusts to the different media, this ensures maximum flexibility with minimum set-up times. In addition, thanks to its compact design and low installation depth, it has only a minor impact on the process and thus ensures maximum food safety.
Even adhesions such as those that occur with pasty materials and electrostatic charging do not affect the performance of the sensor. In such cases as well, the level switch adjusts the switching level without any type of parameterisation, minimising downtimes that may be caused by faulty switching.
With an additional optional 4-20 mA analogue output, the PL20 can help differentiate the media within the process or evaluate the cleaning process. What is more, the graphic evaluation of the measurement results with the help of the FlexProgrammer ensures a transparent process. In addition, the sensor can be easily and quickly integrated in already existing systems via the analogue interface. At the same time, the large selection of process connections and adapters allows the flexible and easy integration of the sensor.
