The LRS510 sensor line from Turck is said to offer extensive analysis functions for challenging level applications in tanks and silos. The IO-Link-capable radar sensors of the recently developed LRS series complete the company’s portfolio for level measurement in the 0.35 to 10 m range.

The Turck devices have protection to IP67/69K, can be commissioned via Turck Radar Monitor and facilitate condition monitoring applications in IIoT: besides signal strength, this includes temperature values, operating hours or switching cycles.

The absence of a metallic guide rod favours usage in hygienic areas, the company says, where the sensors are suitable for the food and pharmaceutical industry (not in contact with media).

The touchpad of the LRS series with capacitive buttons and a translucent front cap is based on the same concept as Turck’s Fluid 2.0 sensor platform, and enables the output of distance, level and volume values. The LRS sensors are available either with two switching outputs or with one switching and one analog output.

Products are available through Turck Canada.
