Intrinsically Safe Magnetostrictive Float Level Transmitter

MPI-E/R

Extreme Accuracy With Intrinsically Safe Wiring

Both the 0.5"∅ MPI-E and the 1.0"∅ MPI-R are built for long-lasting, dependable performance in harsh applications and hazardous locations.

Description

The MPI magnetostrictive liquid level probe brings Intrinsic Safety to the robust construction of our MPX probes. It's also an ideal solution for taking two measurements: both the interface level measurement and a total volume.

Self-Contained System
Pairing an MPI with an Intrinsically Safe Modbus Display MDI creates a self-contained, Intrinsically Safe level monitoring system. No barriers required!

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.

Common Applications
  • C I, D 1 Hazardous Locations
  • Storage Tanks (All Sizes)
