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: Regensburg physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.

The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...

Scientists at the University of Konstanz identify fierce competition between the human immune system and bacterial pathogens

Cell biologists from the University of Konstanz shed light on a recent evolutionary process in the human immune system and publish their findings in the...

Im Focus: Transformation through Light

Laser physicists have taken snapshots of carbon molecules C₆₀ showing how they transform in intense infrared light

When carbon molecules C₆₀ are exposed to an intense infrared light, they change their ball-like structure to a more elongated version. This has now been...

Im Focus: Famous “sandpile model” shown to move like a traveling sand dune

Researchers at IST Austria find new property of important physical model. Results published in PNAS

The so-called Abelian sandpile model has been studied by scientists for more than 30 years to better understand a physical phenomenon called self-organized...

Im Focus: Cryo-force spectroscopy reveals the mechanical properties of DNA components

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a new method to examine the elasticity and binding properties of DNA molecules on a surface at extremely low temperatures. With a combination of cryo-force spectroscopy and computer simulations, they were able to show that DNA molecules behave like a chain of small coil springs. The researchers reported their findings in Nature Communications.

DNA is not only a popular research topic because it contains the blueprint for life – it can also be used to produce tiny components for technical applications.
