Principal of Operation

The Model WC inventory monitoring sensors are fourth generation smart weight & cable style instruments using a proven technique for measuring the distance from the sensor to the surface of the target material. Unlike most other weight & cable type sensors, the Model WC uses enhanced sensitivity Hall effect technology to measure the distance/level. This eliminates optical devices that may be susceptible to dust and dirt through normal use or during installation.

Application and Use

Model WC inventory monitoring sensors are used to measure the material contents in a vessel based upon the level of the material inferred from a direct distance measurement and the known height of the vessel. The sensor will process its measurement and indicate the value on its LCM graphic display as well as via the sensor’s outputs; MODBUS communication, analog (0/4 20mAdc) and Pulse (transistor and relay types). The result of measurement is not affected by environmental factors such as sound waves, dust, static electricity, humidity, and dielectric, etc.

The optional Model RCU remote control unit is available to interface with multiple sensors and provide display of distance/level values as well as allowing operator control of the sensors as well. Industries where applications are found include; Plastic Processing, Concrete, Cement, Food, Agriculture, Recycling, Power and more.
