February 15, 2017--ABB’s Measurement & Analytics business announced the North American launch of the K-TEK LMT Series magnetostrictive level transmitters. The LMT Series is designed to further advance the ease of use, safety and reliability of the AT series of transmitters. By adopting the ABB two-wire common transmitter design combined with advanced signal processing, LMT delivers measurements with an integrated setup menu, advanced diagnostics with waveform display and signal conditioning.
The LMT is available as an insertion style “wetted” transmitter (LMT100) with probe lengths up to 22.86m (75ft) in length, or as an externally mounted, non-intrusive design (LMT200) for use with the market leading KM26 magnetic level gauge or with any other float and level chamber. Both design configurations can be supplied for interface as well as total level measurement.
The LMT200 externally mounted transmitters provide users with installation flexibility and modification. They can be changed from top to bottom mount or from left of chamber orientation to right with no modification of equipment required. The first phase of the LMT Series released today comes with 4-20mA HART output, and will be available with FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA later in 2017.
