ABB – Nivel – Magnetostrictive level transmitters

ABB – Nivel – Magnetostrictive level transmitters

ABB’s K-TEK level products’ patented sensor technology allows the AT and LMT* series transmitters to be used in the most challenging of industrial level applications such as interface measurement, compressor level and separator level applications. In addition, the AT Series Level Transmitters are the only magnetostrictive level transmitters in the world to be certified for use in SIL2 and SIL3 systems per IEC61508.

Every day, we solve high accuracy and challenging applications. We can help you with yours.

ABB’s K-TEK level products’ AT and LMT magnetostrictive transmitters are used extensively around the world to provide continuous level indication and transmission of an analog and/or digital signal for monitoring or control. The unique design allows increased level sensing resolution which is more than 100 times greater than a conventional reed switch type device. The Magnetostrictive Level Transmitter versatility allows direct in-tank installation or external mounting to a magnetic level gauge. HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus options make our magnetostrictive level transmitters easy to connect digitally to most control systems.

ABB – Nivel – 3D volumetric laser scanner

ABB – Nivel – 3D volumetric laser scanner

The VM3D is a laser volume product used for inventory management and automated stockpile management.

The VM3D Scanners are unlike single point level transmitters; they take into account the shape of the surface, accurately calculating the effects of “cone-up”, “cone-down” or irregularities on the material volume.

ABB – Nivel – Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitters

ABB – Nivel – Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitters

The MT series of guided wave radars are the only level transmitters in the world to be IEC 61508 certified for operation in SIL2 and SIL3 environments

The guided wave radar’s self-monitoring capability continually checks for any faults that could cause device failures or false indications. The device features a graphic display incorporated into an all digital electronics module. Using this new format ABB has been able to add waveform screens to the modular electronics along with easy to follow multiple choice setup menus. These menus can be changed to many different languages for easy commissioning throughout the world. Pulses of microwave energy are directed to the product surface using a rigid rod or flexible cable type probe. This assembly has no moving parts and no loss of energy due to beam divergence.
