Cary, NC (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), a leading global supplier of high-performance test systems and position sensors, today announced updated safety approvals for the Level Plus® M-Series Models MR and MC420 level transmitters. Both products are rated as intrinsically safe (IS) Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D for lengths up to 300 inches and Class I, Division 1, Group D for lengths greater than 300 inches for use in hazardous areas based on U.S. standards.
“These safety approvals of our analog level transmitters enable the expansion of our customer base in the chemical, oil and gas, and mining industries,” explained Lee Aiken, MTS Sensors Liquid Level Product Marketing Manager. “The updated IS approval, along with explosion proof and international approvals, provides MTS the advantage of being able to target different applications around the world.”
The Level Plus Model MR transmitter is an analog level transmitter with two-channel output. Providing reliable 3-in-1 measurement (product level, interface level and temperature), this sensor has applications in industries such as petrochemical, liquid petroleum gas, biotech, pharmaceutical, food, beverage, water and wastewater storage, and handling machinery.
The Level Plus Model MC420 provides a single-channel analog 4 to 20 mA output for either a product-level or an interface-level measurement. These sensors are ideal for processing and storing industrial chemicals, solvents, detergents, soaps and lubricating oils, as well as general process liquids used in the petrochemical and water/wastewater markets.
