The SLC series level limit switch can be used for level limit detection of solids that are fine/coarse or in bulk. This capacitance based level measurement switch can also be used for liquid level measurement including water. This small level switch cab also be used with liquids that are sticky/non-sticky corrosive or non-corrosive for switching conveyors off, indicating empty tank condition, preventing pumps for running dry and for detecting the separation layers accurately. The SLC series capacitance based level switch has been used by many of our clients successfully in the Cement, Plastic, Power, Food, Chemicals, Fertilizer, Sugar, Detergent and many other industries. The SLC series consists of an evaluation unit, an electronic insert and the probe. The probe can be mounted form the top or side of the vessel. The probe system comprises a sense electrode which is insulated from the metallic tank by means of a suitable insulator. The sense electrode and the vessel wall serve as the two electrodes of a capacitor with the service material as the dielectric.
You can calibrate the level limit evaluation unit far away from the probe. This level switch uses ordinary 3 core cable for interconnecting the electronic insert with the evaluation unit. A variety of built in multi-point evaluation units is available to reduce the number of discrete controllers thereby reducing the overall cost. The fail-safe high/low selection feature is available as a standard. This systems is economical to install and you can even have it in circular enclosures for your specific requirements.

We call this series the “Intelligent Capacitance Level switch series”. And we do so because this level switch has a microprocessor that checks the complete system (including itself) before validating a signal. You will see a flashing green LED that serves as heartbeat to indicate a healthy system. In the case of a system fault ,which may result due to incorrect wiring, open or short sensor connection, inadequate probe insulation improper grounding or electronic insert failure, the heartbeat stops fault LED glows, display indicates “E---“ and the relay contacts revert to their fail-safe condition. The MP-SLC level switch is a highly reliable liquid and solids level indicator. A two wire Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM) is used for interference-free signal transmission between probe and evaluation unit. Complete system is checked before each measurement and the system has a provision for auto-compensation for temperature drift in the vicinity of a pre-amplifier. The MP-SLC series exhibits a high degree programmability. Important functions such as operating mode (independent/pump control), delayed switching for probe covered/uncovered conditions, fail safe high/low, switching sensitivity,

Translite Fuel Level Sensor
Sapcon instruments offers the translite family of fuel level sensor instruments which use the capacitance technology for accurate fuel and oil level measurement in process plants. Thet ranslite family of fuel level sensors have no moving parts and can be ideally used in extreme plant conditions of high temperature and pressure. The translite instrument range supports a power supply within dc automation is available from 11 to 55 vdc, addressing the need for 12v, 24v and 48v industrial supply options. 4-20ma current loop is galvanically isolated (4 wire) and plc, scada compatible. 4-20ma current loop can supply up to 1000 ohm series load with 24vdc supply. This means 4-20ma signal can be carried to longer distance. The ease of calibration ensures user friendliness: “just let it know the fuellevel for 4ma and 20ma, rest it will take care of. ” following are the options for you to choose from:
- translite fuel level sensor - it is composed of the specially developed capacitance change gaging circuit. Translite uses a fast risc based processor which is the best in its class for evaluating fuel level using capacitance. The capacitance is formed by the sense rod and the metallic container wall. For non-metallic and/or non-uniform shaped containers, a metallic stilling well is provided. The amount of capacitance is proportional to the level of material between the sense rod and metallic wall of stilling container.
- trans~lite fuel level sensor - the best affordable liquid fuel level measuring solution for high temperature conditions. Its key feature is the ease of calibration which is not commonly available in this range of fuel level transmitters. Trans~lite allows electronic-less measurement of level up-to 5 meters distance between the probe and the electronics.
- trans2lite fuel level sensor is a microcontroller based 2 wire capacitance fuel level sensor. Trans2lite has temperature compensated electronics that provide a stable output. This fuel level sensor allows calibration in steps of 10% from 0 to 100% eliminating the need for rigorous emptying filling calibration.
- best fuel level sensor: fast delivery on request, cost effectiveness and low power consumption make this device cut above the rest. All in all, translite is a complete “value for your money” device and if your system has a scada or plc interface, translite is your best buy.
- custom fuel level sensors - capacitance: translite family fuel level sensors can be custom designed to your specification requirements. The sensors have no moving parts and are extremely accurate. They can be designed to fit within the tightest of space envelopes and withstand the most acute work environments.

The MPROF Rate of Flow indicator is a capacitance based solution for reliable detection of rate of flow of liquids in an open channel. The level change is measured using the capacitance principle and converted to rate of flow utilizing the appropriate formula. The MPROF system has an interactive user interface offering you to choose from any of the below mentioned hydraulic devices:
Microprocessor based system for higher degree reliability and stable operation in noisy environment due to intelligent digital communication between the electronic insert and the evaluation unit. All parameters programmable via Five keys and Five multipurpose LED displays. No potentiometer settings required.Galvanically isolated 4 to 20ma output proportional to either level or flow.Three relays for programming three levels / flow independently or as per pump- control logic.One potential free change over relay output contact per relay.
Principle Of Operation:
When the liquid flows through a Hydraulic measuring device (Weir), the level of the liquid is directly proportional to the rate of flow. By knowing the constants of the Weir, flow rate can be calculated by the formula: Q = K * Ln , where Q is the rate of flow in cubic meters per hour, L is the level in meters, k & n are constants that depend on the Hydraulic device.
