Fluidwell F073 Safe Intrinsically safe Level Monitor

Robust Intrinsically Safe level indicators for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F073 is a versatile level indicator with continuous level monitoring feature. It offers the ability to set one low level and one high level alarm value. If desired, an ignore function can be set up to allow for an incorrect level for a certain period of time. The configuration of the Span, off-set and number of decimals is done through software functions, without any sensitive DIP-switches or trimmers.

Description

The F073 is a versatile level indicator with continuous level monitoring feature. It offers the ability to set one low level and one high level alarm value. If desired, an ignore function can be set up to allow for an incorrect level for a certain period of time. The configuration of the Span, off-set and number of decimals is done through software functions, without any sensitive DIP-switches or trimmers.

The display shows the actual level, height or percentage, alarm values, alarm messages and status. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection.

Advantages
  • Robust aluminum or stainless steel 316L field enclosure (IP66, IP67 / NEMA Type4X) .
    It is so rugged, a truck can even stand on it!
  • Intrinsically Safe available – ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA approval for gas and dust applications.
  • Familiar easy operation with the Fluidwell “Know one, know them all” configuration structure, saving time, cost and aggravation.
  • Very diverse mounting possibilities: walls, pipes, panels or directly onto outdoor sensors.
