Endress+Hauser Point Level Switch
By Mario Cywinski
Endress+Hauser announced Nivector FTI26 point level switch for detection of powdered and fine-grained solids (plastic granules, detergent, grain, sugar, spices, milk powder, animal feed and other dry materials). It can be installed at top of a tank to indicate high level, or at bottom to indicate low level.
The capacitance device fulfills all hygienic requirements (3A, EHEDG and FDA). It is cleanable up to protection class IP69, and needs no additional or individual adjustments to different media.
Function of the point level switch can easily be checked via LED signalization without dismounting. FTI26 is Industry 4.0-ready due to IO-Link communication.
Depending on the fail-safe mode selected and the level, FTI26 activates when the point level is reached, in the event of a problem or a power failure.
