New Baumer level switch models with more interfaces for optimised communications

Baumer has introduced two new variants to its CleverLevel series of level sensors, the LBFH and LBFI available with qTeach and a 360° output status indicator.

In the same way as their predecessors, the level switches are based on frequency deviation technology and are suitable for both hygienic and industrial applications.

The level switches offer various programming options to suit different requirements, and the qTeach procedure is of great advantage especially for small installations with simple control systems, the company says.

The sensors can be adjusted with any ferromagnetic tool, thus making it possible to quickly adapt to changing process requirements on site.

The two switching outputs make it possible to set two trigger thresholds, which means two different process steps, such as production and cleaning, or two media groups, such as water and oil, can be monitored with one sensor, saving on storage and costs.

The two switching outputs facilitate a plausibility check of the sensor, and complementary trigger point setting ensures sensor faults and wire breaks are reliably detected, thus guaranteeing effective monitoring of all processes.

The multicoloured switching status indicator provides reliable feedback on all parameterisation steps to support effective process control.

Both variants are suitable for use in temperatures up to 135°C while the variant for hygienic applications has SIP capabilities.
