Regardless of the medium or measurement task, when it comes to level detection, our portfolio always offers you the appropriate solution.
Pre-parameterized for different media ex factory – adherences can be taught in.
Typical applications: For all point level applications, especially suited for separating layer detection and dry-run protection of tanks and pipes
Adjusts automatically to different media – even in the case of adherence.
Typical applications: For all point level applications, especially suited to adherence, CIP cleaning, and for media with different dk values
Universal level measurement for all media
– with window trigger
Point level detection
Independent of the media, CleverLevel level switches reliably and precisely detect the point level of tanks, containers, and pipes. This way, idle running can be detected early on and overfilling is prevented.
Foam and separating layer detection
With the window trigger, separating layers – for example, beer and foam or oil and water – can be detected. Thanks to the two switching outputs, the CleverLevel can be parameterized in such a way that the medium is reliably detected and the different liquids differentiated. The graphic evaluation allows the process to be tracked and optimized even more effectively.
Dry-run protection for pumps
The dry running of pumps is a critical process problem. It can result in dosage deviations or even damage. With its quick response time, the CleverLevel® easily masters this challenge. Faster switching off saves valuable resources.
Adaptive level measurement without parameterization
– with adaptive trigger
The flexible adjustment of systems to short-term requirement changes is an increasingly frequent production challenge. Ensuring this flexibility requires sensor technology that can meet these challenges. We now offer you the solution with the level switch PL20 with adaptive trigger:
Automatic media adjustment
For applications in the food production sector with changing recipes or batch production, the PL20 offers true added value with adaptive setting of the switching point. Without the need for parameterization, the sensor adjusts the switching point to the medium and detects it reliably. This ensures maximum flexibility with minimum set-up times.
Unaffected by adherence
Even adherence, which occurs with pasty materials, does not affect the performance of the sensor. Even with adherence, it adjusts the switching level without the need for any parameterization, increasing process safety.
Optimized for cleaning processes
During cleaning processes, such as CIP cleaning, sensors frequently switch incorrectly as they cannot differentiate between the process media and the cleaning media. The CleverLevel PL20 masters this challenge by ignoring cleaning media such as caustic soda solution and acids during the cleaning process.
Added value with an additional analog output
In addition to the switching signal, analog values ranging from 4 … 20 mA can be read out. This way, other measured values provide additional information about the process in addition to the point level detection. This means that media can be differentiated or cleaning processes evaluated.
Process safety design
Thanks to a hygienic design and the use of high quality materials such as stainless steel and PEEK, our sensors comply with the requirements of the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industry while being in line with relevant standards and directives.
For extreme circumstances
The CleverLevel series complies with the requirements of process automation and the specifications for mobile systems and marine applications. Even in explosive areas, we offer the appropriate solution with the ATEX-certified level switches.
Large selection of process connections
The sensors from Baumer are suitable for almost all process connections. This way, they can be easily integrated into new or existing systems. Thanks to our more than 40 connection types, you do not have to change your system design at all.
Compared to the vibrating fork level switch, the CleverLevel features a particularly compact design and is minimally invasive on the process. This not only makes it easy to clean, but also ensures minimum turbulence and limited flow resistance. It can be optimally used even in pipes with small diameters.
Data is the most important basis for process and product optimization. Thanks to the digital IO-Link interface, valuable additional data can be made accessible. Learn more about how IO-Link can help you in process automation to optimize processes and make them more efficient.
