AutomationDirect’s ProSense SLT series submersible level transmitters are designed for applications like lift station monitoring, construction by-pass pumping, tank liquid level, wastewater, and slurry tank liquid level control. Available in two styles, the ProSense SLT series submersible level sensors are designed to provide liquid level measurement by continually sensing hydrostatic pressure produced by the height of liquid above the sensor and providing a 4-20 mA output signal compatible with PLCs, panel meters, data loggers, and other electronic equipment. 

The SLT1 series features a slim 1-in. diameter housing and a ported bullet nose cap for protection of the sensor diaphragm. This series is available in cable lengths ranging from 30 feet to 140 feet and with sensing ranges of 0-5 psig to 0-50 psig. The SLT2 series features a large 2.75-in. diameter PTFE flexible diaphragm surrounded by a 316 stainless steel non-fouling protective cage to provide reliability and long life in harsh environments. Both styles are fitted with a shielded cable containing an atmospheric vent tube and a tough polyurethane jacket which incorporates an exclusive “water block” liner beneath the jacket. The cable is attached to the sensor using an over-molding process to prevent moisture intrusion.
