Submersible pressure sensors with many options

| By Chemical Engineering


WIKA Alexander Wiegand

This company has introduced two high-performance submersible pressure sensors with a slimline design (photo). The model LW-1 is suitable for level monitoring of water and wastewater. The model LF-1 features long-lasting resistance within all common oils and fuels. Both submersible pressure sensors are, with their slimline case (22-mm dia.), suitable for use within pipes. Thanks to a newly developed sealing concept, special cable and further options, such as Ex and overvoltage protection during lightning strikes, the instruments work reliably even under harsh conditions. The new sensors are available with a variety of output signals. The LF-1 features optional temperature output for density compensation and temperature monitoring. — WIKA Alexander Wiegand SE & Co.
