Fluidwell F170 Safe Area Level Monitor

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

The F170 is a versatile level indicator featuring continuous level monitoring. It offers the ability to set two low and two high level alarm values. If desired, an ignore function can be set up to allow for an incorrect level for a certain period of time.

Up to five outputs are available to transmit alarm conditions and actual level. 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.

Features

  • Level monitoring: four alarm values can be set: low-low, low, high and high-high level alarm.
  • Alarm values can be changed by the operator or they can be password protected.
  • Optional clear alarm output function, e.g. to turn off an acoustic alarm.
  • Analog output to transmit the actual level.
  • Level and alarm values: six large 17mm (0.67″) digits.
  • Displays level, height or percentage, measuring unit and alarm messages simultaneously.
  • Alarm ignore function allows an incorrect level for a certain period of time.
  • Selectable on-screen engineering units; volumetric, mass and height.
  • Displays clear alarm messages.
  • Red flashing LED backlight in case of a level alarm; intensity adjustable.
  • Intrinsically safe according ATEX and IECEx.
  • GRP, Aluminum or high grade stainless steel enclosure.
  • Backup of settings in EEPROM memory.
  • Ambient temperature: -40°C to +80°C (-40°F to 176°F).
  • Various accessories are available for this product.

Applications

  • Level measurement and continuous level monitoring is desired as well as signal re-transmission of the level or serial communication.
  • The F-Series is your first and best choice for field mount indicators in safe and hazardous area applications. Especially in harsh weather conditions like rain, snow, sandy deserts, salty atmospheres and temperatures between -40°C up to +80°C (-40°F up to 176°F).
