Siemens SITRANS LVS200 Vibrating Fork Point Level Switch for Bulk Solids

Siemens SITRANS LVS200 is a vibrating point level switch for high, low or demand levels of dry bulk solids in bins, silos or hoppers. This compact switch can be top, side or angle mounted.

The vibrating fork design ensures the tines are kept clean, and the unique fork and crystal assembly design eliminates false high level readings even if tines become damaged. An LVS200 for liquid/solid interface detects settled solids within liquids or solids in confined spaces like feed pipes. It is designed to ignore liquids in order to detect the interface between a solid and a liquid.

SITRANS LVS200 has an optional 4-20 mA output for monitoring buildup on the fork in sticky applications, to determine the need for preventative maintenance.
