Clever level switch

05 June 2017

ifm electronic has launched a series of point level sensors with what it believes is most reliable deposit suppression on the market.

The new LMC range can be set to almost any liquid or viscous medium as well as to bulk materials. Permanent medium temperatures to 100°C or a heavy build-up are no problem. 

Installation of the LMC is simple and flexible with the variants on offer. The option of a thread at the back permits variable installation depths and application-specific installation. Orientation of the probe is not an issue. 

The LMC is factory set for ease of operation in most media, but it’s simple to alter settings to suit a specific task. Even differentiation between substances is possible using the two independent switching outputs. The LMC range has IO-Link, allowing remote setting and storage of parameters, along with other benefits.  

Shock and vibration resistance are guaranteed by the robust stainless steel housing, sealed to the highest possible rating of IP69K.

The LMC family reliably monitors levels, e.g. in machine tools or wastewater management, or protects pumps from running dry. Issues that commonly affect vibrating forks, such as the wrong orientation or a heavy build-up are not a problem to the LMC.
