February 6, 2020 - EGE introduces a generation of level controllers with guided microwave: the MFN series sensors feature an IO-Link interface and thereby enable continuous access of PLCs to process and parameterization data. Using a corresponding master, the level controllers can be connected to any common bus system and conveniently parameterized via PC or notebook. The guided microwave measuring principle ensures reliability due to its insensitivity to external influences such as temperature, pressure, or density.
It provides for precise measurements in liquids such as water, oil, and emulsions as well as in viscous media. MFN sensors stand out due to their particularly short reaction times in case of level changes. Their display units can be configured to show the measured level in mm, cm, inch, liter, or percent. The housings can be rotated by 360° along with integrated LED indicators and control panels, allowing users access for configuring the devices and reading measured values. The level controllers feature IP67 ingress protection and are designed for an ambient temperature range of -25 °C to +85 °C. EGE's level controller portfolio includes variants with coaxial, single, and double probes for use in different media. The company also manufactures probes from special materials such as Hastelloy or titanium for use in aggressive media. Moreover, EGE also adapts sensors to customer-specific tank geometries and difficult installation conditions, on request.
