Level sensors for critical, sanitary packaging lines
The Micropulse SF fill level sensor from Balluff provides continuous, absolute fill-level measurement in applications that require adherence to the strictest standards of sanitation and cleanliness. To achieve sanitary manufacturing facility requirements, Balluff says these sensors are made from stainless steel and meet international hygiene standards and food industry requirements, including 3-A and EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering Design Group) sanitary standards. Features include: Ability to compensate for surface foam to deliver reliable, accurate fill level values; installation without adjustment; suitable for clean in place (CIP) and sterilize in place (SIP) to 130 °C; standard analog interface ensures wide controller compatibility and flexible installation; and international certifications ensure global acceptance. The Micropulse SF family uses magnetostrictive technology to provide precise fill level measurements without product contact. Its continuously-variable analog output signal allows for connection to control systems.
