July 24, 2014 - Aplus Finetek Sensor announces the SC35 series vibrating fork point level sensor. The SC35 series uses piezoelectric crystal and electronic technology in a point level sensor that does not require any calibration and can diagnose potential problems, including material build-up and abrasion to the primary sensing elements. The SC35 series is a vibrating fork point level sensor that can be used to detect the presence and absence of bulk solid material over a very wide range of material densities. The minimum density that the SC35 series can detect is 0.624lbs/ft3 (10g/l). Other features of the SC35 series vibrating fork point level sensor include self-diagnostics, a small compact housing, universal 19-253VAC/VDC power supply and the availability of standard, pipe extended, high temperature and cable extended probe versions. The SC35 series is a vibrating tuning fork point level sensor utilizing piezoelectric crystal and solidstate electronics technologies to produce vibration in the tuning fork element at a specific frequency and receive electronic feedback. When the probe element is covered or in contact with the target material the vibration is dampened, the electronic feedback changes and presence of the material is thereby sensed by the electronics, which changes the state of the sensor output to indicate material presence. When the probe element is again free of the target material the vibration again is produced, the output state reverts to indicate material absence.
