The launch of a new magnetic level-gage switch

| By Chemical Engineering



The new LMS200 magnetically actuated level-gage switch (photo) is non-invasive and designed to improve the ease of use, safety and reliability of magnetically coupled switches in demanding conditions. The level setpoint is easily adjustable without changing any process piping or risking a plant shutdown. The gage is RoHS 2.0 compliant with global Hazloc ATEX/IECEx and cFMus approvals. When mounted on the company’s KM26 magnetic liquid-level gage, or any other magnetic level gages that contain a magnetic float, the LMS200 switch can sense high or low levels within a vessel. The unique magnetic coupling action avoids the need for seals, diaphragms, springs or torque tubes. — ABB Inc., Warminster, Pa.
