Siemens Milltronics Pointek CLS100 Point Level Detection Sensors

Siemens Pointek CLS100 is a compact two-wire inverse frequency shift capacitance switch for level detection in constricted spaces, interfaces, solids, liquids, slurries and foam. Its short 4" insertion length and versatility in various applications and in vessels or pipes makes it a good replacement for traditional capacitance sensors. When used with a SensGuard protection cover, the CLS100 is protected from shearing, impact and abrasion in tough primary processes.

The CLS100 capacitance switch comes standard with two level outputs, a two-wire current loop output, and a solid-state transistor, and is available in three material constructions. The integral cable version has a stainless steel process connection and probe options of PPS or PVDF. The fully synthetic version has a thermoplastic polyester enclosure with a PPS process connection and probe. The standard enclosure version has a thermoplastic polyester enclosure with a stainless steel process connection in with a PPS or PVDF probe.
