A) Utilisation / installation
• The Liquitec vibration level fork is suitable for use in an EX-free environment.
• The device must be installed, operated and maintained by trained staff,
taking into account the usual and current national and local technical specifications.
• Before using the device, its suitability for the specific application must be checked.
• Product deposits of all kinds in the sensor area should be avoided.
• The correct sensor alignment (groove for fork orientation, see dimensional drawing above) must
be ensured.
B) Function / LED
• The range of functions and the LED display are indicated on the type label.
> DRY = ON > Use as upper limit switch ( HI alarm )
> WET = ON > Lower limit switch ( LO alarm / dry run protection)
The LED display installed as part of the electrical connections has a cycle time of 1 Hz under normal operating
conditions and displays ON; in the event of a short-circuit, the cycle time is reduced to 0.25 Hz, while in the
event of an internal fault it increases to 3 Hz.
C) Magnetic function test
• A provisional function test (closing/opening functions) can be carried out before installation by touching the
housing with a special bar magnet.
D) Electrical connection
• Before connecting the device, the type label must be identified once again, in order to determine the electrical
connection and the switch modes (2-wire load switch or PNP transistor switch). Technical connection data –
see table above.
• The adaptor supplied must be equipped with a suitable cable to achieve the protection class IP66 or IP67. The
The cable inlet should be orientated downwards to ensure leak-tightness.
• Warning for relay connection:
The level switch requires a minimum current of 3 mA, even when “OFF”.
When using a serially switched relay, care must be taken that the drop-out voltage of the relay
is greater than the voltage drop via the relay coil when the current is equal to 3 mA.
