Intelligent Fluid Level Solutions from Sick UK

The LFP Cubic Level Sensor from Sick UK is one that uses TDR technology (time domain reflectometry), so can be used in oil- and water-based liquids without calibration.

The LFP’s guided radar uses time-of-flight technology to measure electromagnetic pulses. The time difference between the sent pulse and the reflected pulse is used to calculate the level, both as a continuous value (analog output) and a freely positionable switching point (switching output).

Due to its flexible probe that can be changed or cut, the LFP Cubic Level Sensor from Sick UK can integrate quickly into any application. The LFP Cubic can work in deposit forming and foaming liquids. The sensor’s intuitive setup uses four buttons and a display to ensure quick and easy adaptation to the application. Remote amplifier, IO-link interface and versions with a process connection in titanium are additional features for versatile use.

At a glance;

  • Level sensor for fluids
  • No mechanical moving parts
  • Manually cutable and exchangeable probe with lengths from 200 mm up to 2,000 mm or rope probe up to 4,000 mm
  • Resistant to deposit formation
  • Process temperature up to 100 °C, process pressure up to 10 bar
  • 3 in 1: combined display, analog output (acc. NAMUR NE 43) and binary output
  • High enclosure rating of IP 67, rotatable housing and remote amplifier version

Your Benefits;

  • Rugged design increases service life
