APG’s story begins with a Utah State University graduate using his engineering skills to make a difference in the lives of farmers. Cordell Lundahl designed an ultrasonic sensor and control system that could guide farm machinery around the uncut edge of a field. A farmer, riding in a second machine, could effectively make two cuts with one pass leaving more time for all the other unending farm chores.
Fast-forward 40 years and APG now offers a full line of level sensors and switches, pressure transducers, and data management tools to help everyone from farmers to chemists, and waste managers to food and beverage producers control their processes and inventories.
APG Vibrating Rod Level Switch VBL | Descriptions
The VBL vibrating level sensor works well with solids of many types in medium and large sized hoppers. The VBL allows you to adjust the sensitivity setting to accurately detect the presence of different types of solids. Field adjustable sensitivity. With several mounting options and field adjustable sensitivity settings, the VBL is perfect for a variety of solid level detection applications.
Versatile Solid Level Sensing
The VBL vibrating level switch works well with solids of many types and for silos and bins or many shapes and sizes.
The VBL vibrating level switch can be mounted vertically or at 20 ° above horizontal.
The VBL vibrating level sensor allows you to adjust the sensitivity setting to accurately detect the presence of different types of solids. Sensitivity can be set on a dial from Low (large particles) to High (small particles).
