The Pointek CLS300 is offered in standard and digital versions. The standard version has 3 LED indicators with basic relay or solid-state switch alarms. The digital version provides an integral LCD display for standalone use, with PROFIBUS PA communication (Profile version 3.0, Class B) when required. Solid-state switch alarm is standard.

 

The robust design of CLS300 makes it specifically applicable for heavy solids applications where abrasive materials occur as in the mining industry. The fully potted electronics are unaffected by condensation, dust or vibration. Wetted parts are made of stainless steel or stainless steel with a PFA shield for high chemical resistance. Ceramic inserts are supplied with high temperature CLS300 devices. Materials with low or high dielectric constants can be accurately detected. The unique Active Shield suppresses interference from material buildup.

 

The unique modular design of the Pointek CLS300 provides a wide range of configurations, process connections, extensions and approvals to meet the temperature and pressure requirements of specific applications. The modular design makes ordering easier and reduces stocking requirements. A wide range of probe configurations are available, including rod and cable versions.

 

Key Applications: liquids, slurries, bulk solids, relatively high pressure and temperature, hazardous areas, milling and mining applications.

Benefits
