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.

Key Specifications

  • High resistance to mechanical forces, and strong vibration resistance to high bulk material loads
  • Suitable for low density material: standard version, 20 g/l; liquid/solid interface version, 50 g/l, and low density option 5 g/l min.
  • Low frequency, low energy operation
  • Won't burrow into the material
  • High or low level alarm in solids with simple failsafe high/low selection
  • Durable short fork option with 165 mm (6.5") insertion length; Extension lengths available up to 20,000 mm (787")
