Digital Liquid-Level Sensors Get LCD Interface Terminal

A new LCD operator interface terminal for Level Plus Digital (MG) liquid-level sensors provides at-a-glance level, temperature, and interface measurements simultaneously from both the MTS DDA or the Modbus RTU interface. Devised by the MTS Sensors Division, the CL01 LCD terminal is a standalone LCD readout screen with expanded keypad functionality. It's also designed with a diagnostic screen to monitor trigger levels and error flags to help engineers quickly troubleshoot problems in the field.

"The CL01 is an ideal way to quickly monitor liquid-level data on one screen," says Level Products marketing manager Adrian Tottn. "And because the device stands alone, engineers don't have to worry about climbing large tanks in order to get readings. The CL01 may be used at ground level to monitor remotely."

Standard features include a two-line by 20-character LCD with an LED backlight, selectable address keys for quick setup, and convenient toggle keys to quickly alternate between data and diagnostic screens.

The CL01 is approved for Class I, II, and III/Division 2 hazardous locations with gas groups B (hydrogen), C (ethylene), D (propane), F (carbonaceous dusts), and G (grain dusts). It's ideal for the petrochemical, propane, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and utility industries. Applications include tank-side indications, standalone monitoring, panel mounting, and NEMA enclosures.

Available now, the CL01 LCD terminal is priced at $995.
