Level Sensor

brief description

The level sensor PS1 has been designed for the special requirements of filling level measuring.

Our level sensor can be used i.a. in rivers, streams, lakes and weirs but also in tanks,containers and water-handling facilities.

From the PS1 there is meanwhile a slimmed level probe PS17 of only 17mm/0.66” in diameter. This also allows it to be used in narrow installation spaces. A novel cable sealing provides for securing higher tensile strength in order to achieve top reliability with applications further deep down.

The probe is fit for depths down to 250 meters. Its stainless-steel housingmakes it hermetically tight and very robust. The reasonable probe is durable,and it is simple to handle.
