TC Control Reedchain Transmitter

TC Control Reedchain Transmitter

TC Control Reedchain Transmitter are a reliable and simple solution to provide your process with a 4-20mA output. The transmitters comprise of a chain of switches evenly spaced at intervals of 5mm, 10mm or 20mm gaps, as the float moves along this chain, the magnetic field generated by the float closes the reed switches changing the resistance in the circuit,  the resistance output is proportional to the level of the liquid.

The TC Fluid Control reedchain transmitter are more economical than alternatives over short distances- it’s externally mounted so can easily be removed or added whenever necessary and is also relatively maintenance free. They can be supplied with a local LCD display along with the 4-20mA output for remote indication of the liquid level.

Structure and functional description

KTX125… and KTX Level Transmitters… (in connection with a magnetic level gauge and float) serve the purpose of monitoring liquid levels in containers. These media must not possess any extreme form of soiling or coarse particles and must not tend toward crystallisation.

In connection with a control unit or an analysis unit, these Transmitters form a filling level measuring system.

The Transmitters function according to the float principle with magnetic transmission in three-wire potentiometer circuitry or two-wire resistance circuitry. A reed measuring chain (reed contacts + resistors) installed in the transmitter tube is actuated by a permanent magnet installed in the float. This provides a height-proportional resistance signal.

The KTX Transmitter can also be used as part of a position measuring system. The transmitter is then installed in or mounted on a machine or equipment system. Together with a control unit or an analysis unit, this combination then forms a position measuring system. The KTX Transmitters function with magnetic transmission in three-wire potentiometer circuits or two-wire resistance circuits. A reed measuring chain (reed contacts + resistors) installed in the KTX… tube is actuated by a permanent magnet installed in or mounted on the machine or equipment system. This provides a resistance signal proportional to the position.
