New level controller from Singer Valve offers versatile water tank level sensing
Control valve manufacturer Singer Valve has launched the LCP-TP single process level controller, designed to complement Singer’s single solenoid operated/override control valves and sensor.
The LCP-TP level controller is programmed with customised level control algorithms and offers both local control via interactive display or remote control via 4-20mA or serial Modbus SCADA communication.
It has AC or DC external power options and contains 24VDC internal power supply for PLC and field sensor power.
The LCP-TP has an IP 67 enclosure rating and is UL certified, built with surge protection as well as over-circuit protection, which ensure protection of the main PLC during voltage spikes and surges.
The controller is capable of on/off level control using input from either level switches or 4-20mA level transmitters.
It is equipped with data logging and trending features which give ability to view live trending as well as store all data on a CSV file to be imported to a computer for full system analysis.
Ryan Spooner, instrumentation and automation manager for Singer Valve, said: “Pairing the Singer LCP-TP control panel and the Singer SC control valve gives the option to not only control the fill cycle of the tank but more functionality to mechanically control the valve while doing so, allowing control of the water in the system.”
This combination package is well-suited for filling any kind of tank with water that requires filling to a set point and then drawing down the level of the tank to a secondary set point before activating the fill cycle again, which ensures tank turnover.
