IFM Level sensors
In industrial applications where fluids or bulk material are used, storage tanks or silos are used for processing or storing of media. Sensors are used to detect the levels. Even critical process conditions such as emptying a hydraulic tank or the unintentional overspill of a tank are monitored by level sensors.
Advantages of electronic sensors.
Deposits and wear and tear often lead to failures in particular if mechanical switches are in contact with the medium. The electronic ifm sensors however can do without any mechanical components. This makes the sensors especially robust and reliable.
Another advantage of electronic sensors is the local indication of the level or the easy setting of the switching threshold simply by pressing a button.
For continuous level measurement the level is detected continuously, converted into an electrical signal and indicated. Depending on the type the units have freely programmable switching outputs or an analogue output for further processing. Continuous level sensors from ifm electronic use three different physical measuring principles:
