LMT Series Point-Level Sensor. The LMT Series Point-Level Sensor monitors the level of liquids, viscous media, and powders in food and beverage applications. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The LMT Series point-level sensor from  ifm efector is designed to monitor the level of liquids, viscous media, and powders in food and beverage applications. The sensor uses a high-frequency capacitance spectrum profiling technology to effectively eliminate challenges with deposits, residue, and foam build-up that commonly cause false signals. The LMT sensor attaches to various mounting adapters to provide a true sanitary mounting system. Typical applications include monitoring point-level in storage tanks and protecting pumps from run-dry conditions. The LMT sensors are factory adjusted for specific media that eliminates sensitivity adjustments and makes installation fast and simple. A compact sensor tip makes integration simple even in small 1-in. pipes. The sensor’s 316 stainless steel body and smooth food-grade PEEK sensing tip ensures chemical compatibility even with the harshest cleaning agents. A high protection rating of IP68/IP69K prevents liquid ingress. Laser-etched part numbers won’t deteriorate in high-pressure cleanings.
