Level sensor TDR for food & beverage industry - LFP Inox – SICK

The LFP from SICK is a hygienic level sensor for liquids using TDR technology – a process for determining the time of flight of electromagnetic waves.

The time difference between the sent pulse and the reflected pulse is used to generate a level signal, both as a continuous value (analog output) and a freely positionable switching point (switching output). The use of robust FDA-compliant materials like stainless steel in an EHEDG-certified design means that the LFP guarantees optimal, unrestricted cleaning, even for the highest hygiene requirements. Its modular connection system allows simple and flexible installation in any application. Thanks to high temperature and pressure resistance, unrestricted use is possible under CIP and SIP conditions. The communication capability via IO-Link to the superordinate control units rounds off the profile.
