Elixir vibrating fork is a level switch for liquids and is used in tanks, containers and pipelines. As a sturdy replacement of conventional float switch, Elixir offers a variety of built-in features non-existant in floats and other switches, e.g. where materials are sticky, corrosive, agitated, splashing, foaming and having uncertain electrical properties.
This level switch detects the resonant frequency change and changes the output signal according to failsafe mode selection. Typically, the output is fed to a PLC which then uses it to control the process.
Elixir vibrating fork is suitable for hazardous areas, available with explosion-proof housings certified by CMRI, Dhanbad.
IP-67 Marking, RoHS Compliance, CE Marking, CMRI certified explosion-proof housing
A specially shaped tuning fork is kept vibrating using piezo-electric elements. Typically, the fork vibrates at its natural frequency. The frequency of oscillation for the tuning fork changes when immersed in liquids. The change in frequency is detected by the microprocessor leading to a switching decision.
Process Connection (Mounting Arrangement)
Input power supply & Outputs
Namur compliance can be attained with a Namur certified isolator.
Time Delay Settings
Elixir is suitable for all industrial liquids such as:
More value in less real estate
Shorter vibrating forks – minimum insertion length of 44mm, with no compromise in operational ruggedness of the device. Saves space → paves the way for designing smaller tanks / silos.
Sapcon’s liquid vibrating forks have been successfully installed in applications where there is turbulence in the liquid and in the application tank.
Long term reliability is the key feature of Sapcon
Reliability and quality with Elixir have gone a step further than straightforward operational compliance.
Reliable and fast switching with an adjustable time delay option from 1s to 25s.
Ensures easy cleaning, helps with stringent hygiene compliances in pharmaceuticals, dairy and food applications.
Packaging plant manufacturers or OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers) desire outputs suitable at the end-user’s site. Relay and PNP (Open Collector PNP) outputs though standard are generally available only in separate models. Thus they normally had to be separately procured and stocked.
In a close understanding of our customer behaviour, we have launched a single model with both Relay and PNP outputs with an input power supply from 24 V DC – 265 V AC on the same two terminals. This directly results in savings by reducing the required inventory.
