Tough & Accurate — The Fozmula TLL171

Liquid level sensors operate in order to determine if a liquid or oil exists at a particular level in a tank. Capacitive liquid level sensors use two conductive electrodes in a circuit. The electrodes, a short distance away from each other, complete a circuit when they are immersed in a fluid. Capacitive liquid level sensors have the advantage of easily being able to detect the rising or falling of liquid in a tank or container, and with no moving parts, generally have a long service life. The electrodes, existing at the same height as the tank, allows the capacitance between the electrodes to be measured. When there is no capacitance, there is no liquid, when there is full capacitance, there is a full tank. The full and empty measurements are recorded and a calibrated meter shows the liquid level.

The Fozmula TLL171 Capacitance Liquid Level Sensor is an ideal instrument for shallow tanks in hostile environments. It is both tough and accurate and has no moving parts to maintain, adding to its long service life. The durable hexagon header houses all the important electronics and allows the TLL171 to leave a very small real estate footprint on your system, making it perfect for smaller tanks. Outputting a 4-20 mA signal and available in lengths anywhere up to 500mm, the TLL171 proves itself to be a staple in liquid measurement industries.

GTS stocks a large range of the Fozmula TLL171, specifically for diesel. Despite only keeping diesel in-stock, GTS provides our customers with the option to custom build your TLL171 for other fluids such as water, coolant or petrol. With a 1/2″ BSPT thread, no moving parts and a large range of sizes and custom options available, the TLL171 is tough, reliable and accurate and perfect for your system.

Pressure Switches and the benefits of an Adjustable Hysteresis

The GTS-PS is feature packed. With a snap-action micro switch, change over contact SPDT (Single-Pole, Double-Throw) and a compact and durable design, the German designed and manufactured GTS-PS is constructed from high-quality materials and is purpose built for longevity and reliability. The key advantage, however, is the adjustable hysteresis the GTS-PS features within its compact shell.

Hysteresis (also often referred to as differential) refers to the difference that occurs between the switching point and the reset point. The hysteresis functions to keep the switch point and the reset point from having the same value, and prevents the system from oscillating and becoming unstable. The advantage of an adjustable hysteresis is that it allows that range to be moved depending on the user’s application. It offers the opportunity to be precise with your switching and reset point, giving the operator more control over the overall performance of their engineering system.

The GTS-PS, with its adjustable hysteresis, is available in both an adjustable vacuum range,-0.85–0.15bar, as well as adjustable pressure ranges from 0.2–2 bar all the way up to 30–320 bar. It offers precise control over the hysteresis and is compact, durable and reliable. GTS supplies a full range of the GTS-PS and is also equipped to adjust the hysteresis to your required range. Contact the GTS team HERE to get in touch with one of our instrumentation experts, or give our sales team a call on (08) 9250 4400 today!
