Siemens SITRANS LC500 Capacitance Continuous Level Transmitter

Siemens SITRANS LC500 is an inverse frequency shift capacitance level or interface transmitter for extreme and critical process conditions, such as oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG) as well as toxic and aggressive chemicals and vapors. It works especially well in acids, caustics, adhesives and in viscous conductive and non-conductive materials.

LC500's advanced electronics provide one-step, pushbutton calibration. This smart two-wire transmitter has HART® communications for remote commissioning and inspection. Available probe configurations include threaded, welded flange, single-piece flange or extended cable versions with rod sensors.

Key Specifications

  • Measurement range of 3300 pF for high accuracy
  • Rod probe versions to 5.5m (18 ft) and cable probe versions to 35m (115 ft)
  • Integrated local display for easy on-site commissioning
