Vibratory switches for liquid media

25.06.2008
The new Sitrans LVL100 and LVL200 vibratory switches from the Siemens Industry Automation Division are suitable for signaling when the level of liquid media is sufficiently high, liquid media is required or needs to be refilled, and for protecting pumps.

The compact and user-friendly switches measure reliably even if the conditions change, for example variations in the dielectric permittivity of a medium or the formation of vapor or bubbles. Sitrans LVL100 and Sitrans LVL200 are used in storage and process applications and can be connected to any signaling systems.


The vibratory switches are insensitive to external vibrations, and have a particularly long service life. Both switches are equipped with a special, extremely reliable piezo actuator, and are also suitable for high temperatures. If the electronics detects damage or corrosion, the fail-safe switches trigger an alarm.

Sitrans LVL100 is suitable for applications where space is limited, for pressure vessels, and for protection against running dry. Due to its compact design, the switch can be mounted vertically, horizontally or inclined. It is suitable for all pipelines with a nominal diameter of DN25 and above.

In compliance with SIL2, Sitrans LVL200 has a safety shutdown for detection of minimum/maximum levels. The new vibratory switch operates extremely reliably even at high process temperatures up to 250 degrees Celsius.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
