Tank Switch Detects Level



Hawk Measurement introduced the Gladiator Smart Admittance Level Switch, which detects the level of liquids, slurries, powders or solids in a tank or vessel. Able to operate at temperatures up to 450C, the unit measures the capacitance or admittance between a probe and the wall of the container. As the level of the product rises to the level of the probe, or drops below that level, the capacitance measured at the probe changes. The Gladiator detects this change and produces an output.

The Gladiator communicates using Modbus, HART, or Profibus protocols. A remote amplifier can be positioned up to 500 m away from the unit. The HawkLink GSM/CDMA communication option allows a technician to commission, calibrate, test, or check the output of the unit from anywhere in the world.
