Description

Modbus Output
The RS-485 Modbus RTU output makes the MPX compatible with any Modbus controller or PLC. It also simplifies wiring dramatically.

Tank Cloud Compatible
The MPX liquid level sensor is a Tank Cloud slave sensor, able to communicate via the Internet with the addition of an LOE Master sensor or an RST-5003 module.

Durable & Compatible
This liquid level sensor is built to take a beating - designed for high turbidity environments in hazardous locations. It also has several materials options for the stem and floats for maximum chemical compatibility.
