LNI250

Non-Intrusive Level Sensor

for conductive products

Product description

The Triflex LNI 250 is designed to measure the level on the outside of a non-metallic tank without physical contact with the product. The LNI 250 incorporates the unique FTC technology (Field Time Control). This is a new innovative technology where an electric field is generated between multiple transmitting electrodes and a receiving electrode. The cycle time of the FTC level sensor changes as soon as a product intervenes this electric field. Multiple electrodes are embedded to detect the level of relative high dielectric material (εv ≥ 4 ).

The Triflex LNI 250 transmitter does not require moving parts or product contact that may be subject to failure situations. Applications with a sensor with FTC Technology provide a more reliable and cost effective solution.

Advantages
  • Save time and costs in easy installation with single button setup and no tank nozzles required.
  • Non-intrusive installation, no risks of leakage or overspill.
  • Easy access maintenance without shutting down your processes, save time and costs!
  • Virtually no maintenance, no moving parts.

Features

  • New FTC technology.
  • Fault detection according to Namur NE43 for fast error solving.
  • Auto calibration, unaffected by product quality changes: reliable results ALL the time.
  • Sensor status indication for easy reference.
  • Available in 30cm and 60cm measuring length.
  • Software tool (Linux based) available as accessory to calibrate the Triflex.

Applications

  • The Triflex LNI 250 is applicable for measuring conductive products with a dielectric constant greater then 4.
  • The Triflex LNI 250 is specially designed for non-intrusive level applications of bulk solid products. It is ideal for situations where it is undesirable or impossible to make an entry into a plastic or glass storage vessel or for aggressive or contamination sensitive products.
