In which direction should the level sensors be installed?

Generally all level sensors should be installed in the following direction: with the cable outlet plugs pointing to the right or downwards. For more information, please consult the reference manual, which can be found under the "documents/3D models" section on the product page of your interest.

 

In which position can level switches be installed?

In general, all our level indicators can be installed in any position, as you wish (paying attention to the direction), for more information please refer to the specific product manual. Exceptions are the products listed in the pdf below.

Where should the cables be placed in the inside of the level sensor?

There are different wiring harnesses depending on the type of power supply and the type of level indicator chosen. For more information, please consult the reference manual, which can be found under the "documents/3D models" section on the product page of your interest.

How can I prevent that water comes into the level sensors?

To avoid infiltrating water into the measurement instruments, the level switch must be positioned correctly (see installation position faq) and use plugs and cable glands suitable for the thread of the cable entry hole. After wiring the level sensor, check that you have closed the cover correctly.

Technical F.A.Q.

What electrical connections are available for rotary sensors (PFG05, PFG57 and PFG09) and pressure level switches (MN21)?

The electrical connections available for these types of indicators are: faston terminal, spring terminal block and screw terminal block. For more explanations, see the video tutorial where we show the different connection options of the basic PFG05 model.

Is it possible to customize level sensors according to specific customer requirements?

Sure, customization is one of CAMLogic's founding principles. That's why our company offers the possibility of customizing -from flanges, to paddles, to extensions- each level sensor through the specific 'configurator' section.

Why do propellers take different shapes?

Because the different helix shapes are adapted to the type of connection of the level indicator and this allows different materials to be handled in density (0.1 to 2 kg/dm3).

Do you have level sensors for gas risk zones?

Yes, in this situation the most suitable measurement instrument is the PFG09 , a rotary level switch (ATEX certified) that can be used inside areas with the presence of gas and dust.

Is it possible to adjust the sensitivity of the CLC40 conductive level sensor family?

Yes, it is possible to adjust al sensitivity by using the internal trimmer, turning clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise to decrease it. It is also possible to enter a delay in signaling (0 to 10 seconds) through the DIP switch.

Is it possible to adjust the sensitivity of capacitive level switches that belong to the PFG06 family?

The sensitivity of the capacitive level sensors is adjustable using the internal trimmer, turning clockwise to increase sensitivity or counterclockwise to decrease it.

How can I understand if my PFG05 is working properly?

The optional 'Rotation Control' can be used to check the correct functioning of the level sensor. This accessory adds a signal to indicate shaft rotation; indeed, when it rotates freely, a microswitch generates a pulse signal (8 pulses/rotation) between contacts 1 and 4. To obtain this option, configure your product by clicking here.

How can I understand if my PFG05 is correctly powered?

The PFG05 power supply can be controlled using the electrical option "Voltage control" it can be understood. To obtain this type of option, customize the level switch through the specific section of the configurator.
