Capacitive Level Switch CLS–53N, Dinel-Level and Flow Measurement

CAPACITIVE LEVEL SWITCH CLS-53N Dinel
CAPACITIVE LEVEL SWITCH CLS-53N Dinel

The capacitive level switch CLS® is designed for limit (2-state) level sensing of bulk-solid materials (pellets, wooden chips, cereals, granulates, etc.) in hoppers, containers, silos, etc. The sensor output is equipped with an electronic switch. The sensitivity and output mode (normally open/closed) can be simply set by attaching a magnetic pen to the sensitive spot on the sensor housing.

Features

  • Detection of various types of bulk-solid materials (pellets, wooden chips, granulates, cereals, sand, etc.) in various metal and plastic hoppers, containers, and silos
  • Simple sensitivity setting through a magnetic pen
  • Two or three-wire connections directly to the relay circuit or PLC logic unit
  • Wide range of supply voltage from 20 V up to 230 V AC/DC (CLS-53N-SAC)

Features of Variant

  • CLS – 53N – SAC 2-wire connection with an electronic current switch directly connected to the relay circuit. Supply
    voltage up to 230 V AC/DC. The sensor is not suitable for direct connection to a binary input of the control system.
  • CLS – 53N – P(N) 3-wire connection with NPN or PNP output for connected to Dinel supply and switching units or binary input of PLC.

Range of Applications

Detection of various types of electrically conductive and non-conductive bulk-solid materials (pellets, wooden chips, granulates, cereals, sand, etc.) in various metal and plastic hoppers, containers, and silos.

Sensor Setting

The setting is performed through attaching magnetic pen MP–8 to “SENSE” spots placed next to the connector and marked with “set ON” or “set OFF”. Such a method is used for the setting of the sensitivity and the switching mode.

The “mode O” – normally
open (opens when the level drops) and “mode C” – normally closed (connects when the level drops). When attaching the magnetic pen to the “SENSE” spot, the LED indicator “STATE” shortly flashes four times.

mode O: When the level is low (the container is empty), attach the magnetic pen MP–8 to the “SENSE” spot marked with “set OFF” for approx. 3 seconds. When the level is high (the container is full), attach the magnetic pen MP–8 to the “SENSE” spot marked with “set ON” for approx. 3 seconds.

mode C: When the level is low (the container is empty), attach the magnetic pen MP–8 to the “SENSE” spot marked with “set ON” for approx. 3 seconds. When the level is high (the container is full), attach the magnetic pen MP–8 to the “SENSE” spot marked with “set OFF” for approx. 3 seconds.
